Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2006
As kid's music continues to gain in popularity, there is still a void for families who want to find tunes they can enjoy together. Country music-loving parents seeking something other than pop-flavored melodies for their kids can now find the answer in the first cd by The Bummkinn Band. Featuring the original songs and lilting voice of Texas-born singer/songwriter Kimber Breaux, the first album entitled "Starry Skies and Lullabies," includes boot scootin' nursery rhyme story-songs as well as lullabies that will put a small cowpoke to sleep faster than a bee sippin ' on a flower.
Searching for inspiration for her music, Breaux chose traditional nursery rhymes as a background for many of her lyrics. "Nursery rhymes are familiar to parents and are easy for kids to remember, says Breaux. "I wanted to take the comfort of those rhymes and add a story that made sense for their lives today." The song, "Hey Mr. Dumpty" reflects on the mistakes that kids make with the understanding that they can also be a new beginning while "I Can Do Anything" uses the basis of Hey, Diddle Diddle to suggest that, if a cat can play a fiddle and a cow can jump over the moon, a kid can do anything he sets his mind to accomplish.
Additional nursery songs such as "The Hope Song" based on the rhyme Jack, Be Nimble and Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary suggest that if you believe in yourself, your dreams can come true. Additional vocals on the cd were provided by country artists including King Cotton, Keith Gattis, Bryson Jones, Bobby Joyner and Jonny Kaplan. The cd, which is currently available at CDbaby.com, features an image of a character that Breaux has named Joe Bear BummKinn. Breaux insists that he's the "Buck Owens" of the stuffed animal world -- a teddy-sized fella with a grizzly-sized personality. The band is currently developing a preschool television series marketed as "HeeHaw for Kids" about Joe Bear, The BummKinn Band, and all the residents in the make-believe vicinity of Fish in A Tree County.
