Hi guys! So excited to let you know that my debut children's album, 'BOUNCE!' will be pre-released on all digital platforms on 11/11/19 and the world wide release on 19/11/19! !  I have had a run of a few hundred beautiful digi packs delivered already so please contact me if you would like to purchase one - they'll provide awesome entertainment and great talking points in car journeys with your children/grandchildren/nieces/nephews!!  As many of you may know, I am a passionate believer in the joy that music can bring into the lives of children, and the way it so effortlessly promotes learning and understanding.  This album grew out of my Doctoral research on music and emotion and its eclectic group of songs aims to nurture well-being and confidence in children and to help them to negotiate the 21st century demands of our world today.

This album has been an amazing family affair with my two sons, Josh and Luke T.  joinging me to sing and rap fantastically!  They started helping me with this project 2 years ago and I just couldn't have done it without them!  I am also blown away by our youngest singer and soloist, Ava Zeta Jones, who lifts the album yet again with her incredibly amazing young melodic voice!

We had a fabulous time in the studio last week finishing of the backing vocals on some of the pop and reggae tracks that feature on this album!  I was so proud of our amazing young musicians who sang beautifully but were also just so delightful and enthusiastic.  Thank you so much Issy Farr, Freya Jenkins, Ffion Philputt, Nell Jones, Robbie Thornton-Lane, Lorna Muriungi, Lilly Davies, Jess Wiemers, Izzy Lowe, Morgan Paget and Lauren Protheroe. 

A million thanks to all of you brilliant young singer!  You are magnificent!!
