You Can Close Your Eyes: Lullabies
Award winning singer-songwriter and vocal coach Susan Anders collected some of her favorite pop and Motown songs and translated them into lullaby form for this collection. The result are some simple, beautiful, and relaxing versions of songs from the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Carole King and James Taylor, among others. Her aim was to create a CD that parents would love and babies would nod off to, and she succeeded on both fronts. 'When I had my baby I wanted so much to be a lullaby singing mom, the way mine was. But I couldn't stand most children's music and I don't sing that well. Susan found popular songs that make beautiful lullabies even if that wasn't their original intent. They bring up fond memories for me and I can sing along and my son thinks I have a beautiful voice. It has been some of the best bonding time with him.' Dante's Mom, North Hollywood, CA 'The first weeks of Zoe's birth were filled with Susan's beautiful voice singing the songs from my youth to my baby. This is the soundtrack for motherhood! The great songs of my wild days at a baby's tempo, just like mom, slowed down and wised up, but soulful as ever. Zoe is four now and I can still put her to sleep with these songs.' Zoe's Mom, Santa Monica, CA 'We love this dang CD so much we put it on repeat play for an entire Saturday. It sure makes mommy feel great!' Cole's Mom, Altadena, CA 'This is a wonderful and very relaxing CD-- Emma loves it, but I love it more.' Emma's Mom, Philadelphia, PA ************* Susan Anders was born and raised in Berkeley, California and now lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Her band Susan's Room has released five albums.
