Cat Doorman Songbook Review

My daughter and I listen to a lot of music, we love to sing and just enjoy it. I grew up in a very musical home and I want to pass that down to my daughter. I am picky about music and what my daughter and I listen to.

I was given the opportunity to review Cat Doorman Songbook from Night & Day Studios, it is by a Portland Indie Music Artist Julianna Bright.  The music you hear in Cat Doorman is very authentic and full of complexities that are not typical in music for children. They also bring a fresh take on familiar children themes.

Julianna Bright grew up in southern California and studied English Literature at UC Berkley. Her sensitive literary quality infuses her lyrics, and her artistry is evident in the Cat Doorman Songbook. This is Bright’s first collaboration with Night & Day Studios, a pioneer in the children’s app worlds who’s original ‘Peek-A-Boo’ series of apps have sold millions. Bright and her partner Seth Lorinczi are raising a five-year-old daughter in Portland. I love to see fellow parents making things of quality for children everywhere!

I put this CD in when we were in the car and she loved it. On the first listen she was bobbing her head to the music and she seemed to really like it. On the way home when we listened to it again she was even trying to pick up some of the lyrics. I love hearing her sing, so even trying to sing brings a huge smile to my face. I love music that does that, and I very much want all of you to experience it. This is great Indie music and I love that my child does not need mainstream music to enjoy herself.

Cat Doorman Songbook has 14 songs:

  • Peaceful
  • Two Old Shoes
  • Effervescent Elephant
  • All the Birds
  • So Many Words
  • Turn Around
  • Madame Claire
  • Inspiration
  • Yea!
  • Lets get Dressed Up
  • Lonely Girl
  • Little Red Wagon
  • Whistling Song
  • With Linked Arms

The Release of this CD coincides with the release of the launch of the Night & Day Studios Little Red Wagon App. It is an interactive app for children based around Bright’s version of this classic tune and made from hundreds of her hand-painted illustrations!
