The future of the world is in the hands of our children. Through these songs we want to create awareness among children and families worldwide and hope to inspire a greener and more sustainable world for all.
These songs are the product of an epic journey over the last few years, which started with my youngest son making play dough….yes play dough….endless amounts of play dough….and then me wondering how I could safely and environmentally dispose of it! That hit me with a eureka moment! The realisation that glitter, always the favourite play dough component, is in fact…..litter! All those micro plastics getting into our water stream, impacting on our majestic oceans and magical sea life, and never ever going away. So I asked my incredibly talented friend Susan Muranty to help me write some colourful and captivating songs for children, to encourage them to understand the impact of some of our human actions on our glorious world but also to marvel at its wonders too. We skyped across the globe and through different time zones and we sang and danced and wrote our way into these songs.
'Gliitter is Litter!' will be released on all digital platforms all over the world, and we can't wait for you to hear them! They move beautifully between diverse musical genres, including pop, EDM and reggae, with musical moments that are bursting with energetic vivacity and at other moments, tender, introspective and melodic.
My heartfelt thanks to all my team involved in the creation of this EP.
Special mention to our featured soloists, my two amazing and talented sons, Josh and Luke, who make me burst with pride and joy every day. You are incredible! And to the cutest and most special little girl, Ava Zeta Jones, who sang ‘Glitter is Litter’ when she was only four years old!
Thanks to my genius friend Tim Hamill, from Sonic One Studios, for all your astonishing expertise and talent in bringing out the best in these songs.
Special mention to Fernando Juarez for his fabulous, stunning art-work. Fer based it on real photos of all of us…the boys and me in our scuba diving gear, and Ava in the mermaid costume she actually wore when she sung ‘Glitter is Litter’.
Of course, my beautiful friend, Susan Muranty, for her marvellous co-writing.
And finally, my fantastic husband, Gethin, whose unwavering love, support and encouragement breathes life into my creative heart.
We hope you love them as much as we do! Enjoy!
