Songs of Connection by Alice Garrick

I love the opportunity to share new music with you, but it’s even more lovely today to have the opportunity to share a kids’ album from an Australian musician. Alice Garrick is a singer/songwriter based in Melbourne who makes quirky, upbeat music  with a folksy feel and a smiley tone.

Songs of Connection - Alice Garrick

Songs of Connection is filled with ten bubbly tracks that are super fun for sing-alongs. In particular, track 2 “Dinosaurs lived a long time ago” and track 3 “Mad as a wet hen” which have been favourites in this household over the last few days. Just a warning though, trying to keep up with Alice on “Mad as a wet hen” may result in you passing out from lack of oxygen to the brain!

I also love the song “treats” which just makes me giggle every time I hear it. Why? It’s funny ’cause it’s true…”You know I didn’t mean it. I don’t know how it happened. I went to the cupboard where you keep the treats. And I accidentally ate them”.

My favourite aspect of this CD is Alice’s voice, which has that delicious indie styling with a familiar Australian sound. It’s fabulously unpretentious, and you can feel Alice’s love for both music and children through her songs. Have a little listen…

Songs of Connection by Alice Garrick is available for purchase online through her website.

Congratulations to our winner, Natalie K.
