When playing lullabies for your baby, the majority of the music you will find is the same old music that was played or sung for you as a baby. Well there is a new lullaby on the market to lull your baby with, its called Cradle Rock! With songs inspired by artists like Johnny Cash, Michael Jackson and Kenny Chesney, Cradle Rock is the new lullaby collection for todays babies!! My son is 2 and when we played the Johnny Cash version of lullabies from Cradle Rock for him at nap time, he seemed to really enjoy it. And just like any other lullaby music you can play for your little ones, the music did seem to sooth him and he went right to sleep!! Now I did receive 3 CD samples for review and he has enjoyed all three of them. We received Johnny Cash, Michael Jackson and Kenny Chesney to sample. My son seems to be keen on the Johnny Cash version. I personally liked all of them. These are going to be lullaby CD's we will be hanging on to, to help assist us with bed times!!
Here is a clip from a article with some more info on Cradle Rock:
“The ‘Cradle Rock’ lullabies are unlike any other in the marketplace today, since we wanted to focus on iconic artists and albums that appeal to music fans across a wide variety of genres,” says Steve Jones, CEO of Brash Music. “Each project is produced with child and parent in mind, so the melodic structure and tempo of each song stays true to the original.” Jones says most lullaby releases are a collection of hits or compilations by various artists. “While some projects in the Cradle Rock series follow a compilation model, most are replications of entire albums in lullaby form. Additional Cradle Rock albums in development include U2’s “The Joshua Sleep Tree,” Black Eyed Peas’ “Sleep-pea Hits” as well as lullaby albums inspired by Nickelback, Carrie Underwood and The Eagles to name a few.
David Williams, president of Tree Top Records and executive producer, says “Thrillaby” is based on Michael Jackson’s Thriller and follows the famous album’s track listing from start to finish. ’Thrillaby’ is the perfect introduction to one of the greatest albums ever recorded, complete with irresistible melodies from the ‘King of Pop.’” The Kenny Chesney collection is stacked with number one singles, “Including the soothing, country hits representing his greatest work,” says Williams. Johnny Cash fans will appreciate lullabies based on American Records’ “The Legend of Johnny Cash, Volume One.” “Even though this project features ‘greatest hits’, it focuses on a period of recordings Cash did with legendary producer Rick Rubin,” adds Williams.
Dating back to ancient cultures, science demonstrates the importance of lullabies in the development of children. “Babies are actually born with a basic sense of timing, rhythm and tone,” says producer Stephen Gause, “which is why soothing lullabies help speed up the process of falling asleep.” Gause says the albums are for true and dedicated music fans who want to share popular music with their children. “Cradle Rock” albums, distributed by The Warner Music Group, will be available at www.cradlerockstore.com, through all digital distribution services like iTunes for $9.99, and at music retail outlets across the United States for $11.98.
