This week I’ve been listening to a preview copy of Shira & Friends new album “When You’re a Kid” which is due to be released today (28 August 2012). It features four upbeat dancy numbers, and one laid-back lullaby. My favourite of the five tracks is called I Want a Monster and I’m very pleased to share it with you today.
A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Shira Kobren has performed on stage, screen, commercials, and she has sung on albums, all while teaching music and movement to young students throughout New York City. Shira & Friends was born when Shira decided to combine her loves of performing and of being silly and creative with her students. Shira enlisted some of the best musicians she knows to be her “Friends”, and all together, they make music that both kids and grown-ups can appreciate and enjoy.
You’ll be able to purchase Shira & Friends new album at their website from 28 August 2012.
