My kids and I love this album because it's mellow and singable. And I cannot stress enough the difference in sound, style, and content from typical children's music. A review I read called Renee & Jeremy's music 'family music' rather than children's music, which is perfectly fitting. The songs speak just as much to me as a parent as they do to my kiddos. Somehow this pair has managed to jump directly into my heart and mind and verbalize my thoughts and feelings for my own babies. When I hear these songs, I feel like I am right there in the nursery watching a mama and a daddy love on their sleeping baby.
Renee & Jeremy have a new album out called C'Mon. The new songs are more upbeat than the the songs on the previous album, making it great for playtime, while It's a Big World is still our favorite lullaby or calm time CD. I can't say enough good things about their music. I love the way their music makes me feel. I love idea they create that say love is not complacent, but rather proactive. I love that I can feel the bond between parent and child just by listening to them sing. I love that my own kids crave this music. My 18 month old daughter wants me to sing Powder Blue to her all the time. In fact, we no longer listen to the radio in the car (which is fine by me- it's all garbage anyway). Our trips across town involve me singing Powder Blue or Free to my smiling shorties in the back seat. And ya know what, I love the art on the album covers!
Being a photographer, I spend a lot of time on the computer. I have created a new routine since finding Renee & Jeremy's music. While processing my images from a shoot, you can bet that I am playing the It's A Big World album on my laptop. It is the perfect mood music. It pushes my creativity and keeps the parent/child bond at the forefront of my mind, which is what I strive to focus on in my photography. I am thrilled to have enjoyable music that is child-appropriate to help keep me in the right mindset while I work. Renee & Jeremy get a perfect 10 from me and my kids!
