HGG2012 - A Capella Lullabies for Baby

More music on the gift guide today. And I'm delighted that we are highlighting another local Toronto artist. In fact, Jason Simmons, the artist behind "My Butterfly" A Capella Lullabies," is a fellow Scarborough dweller and father to three.

Jason is the founder and creator of Vocal Paint, and has been singing since he was 6 years old. He founded Vocal Paint as a way to celebrate and preserve a capella music and the beauty of the human voice. The first CD in his series, "My Butterfly" is a gorgeous, lush collection of classic lullabies, including Brahms Lullaby, Hush Little Baby and Twinkle, Twinkle. The vocals are soothing, full, and a wonderful way to fall asleep. "Lulling" is indeed the perfect word.

"My Butterfly" was released in 2011 and received a Juno nomination in 2012 for "Children's Album of the Year." It is now available in all the Public Libraries in Toronto and soon will be in libraries across Canada.

Do you have any new or expecting parents on your gift list this year? This CD would be such a thoughtful gift and definitely appreciated by parents, babies and young children alike. My Little Boo is almost 7, and he still listens to lullabies to help him settle to sleep each night. We have been really enjoying this collection to soothe us both after a long day.

My Butterfly is available on iTunes for digital download and CD Baby for purchase and digital download. You can sample some of the songs as well on the Vocal Paint website.
