2018 PARENTS' CHOICE FOUNDATION RECOMMENDED AWARD

Surely one of the albums highlights is the delightfully buoyant "The Grass Is Always Greener," sung as a duet with Grammy Award winning Children's Music vocalist Tim Kubart. Catchy melodies rein in "Raindrop" and "River Come Down" while the bluesy "Blue Fin" continues the aquatic theme to observe the innumerable colors of fish in the sea.

"SUZI SHELTON'S NO NEWCOMER TO THE KINDIE SCENE, BUT HER LATEST ALBUM SOUNDS 100% BRAND-NEW. IT COULD JUST AS EASILY BE PLAYING THROUGH A BROOKLYN HIPSTER'S IPHONE AS A FAMILY IPAD. AT ITS CORE "HAND IN HAND" IS STILL THE EMPOWERING, KID-FOCUSED FOLK-POP WE'VE COME TO EXPECT, BUT THERE'S A NEW BEAT HERE THAT'S INFECTIOUS AND EAR-GRABBING."

Children and Music: Interview with Suzi Shelton

Suzi Shelton is a musician who is known for her heartfelt songs and kid-friendly tunes. Suzi released her fourth solo album for families, called “Hand in Hand,” on May 11, 2018.

Mr. Jeff

"INSTEAD OF SIMPLE PARENTAL DECLARATIONS OF ADORATION, HAND IN HAND URGES KIDS TO LEARN, GROW, DEVELOP INDIVIDUAL PERSONALITIES, AND EMBRACE WHAT MAKES THEM TRULY SPECIAL.”

"Can You Feel the Power" is a preteen-Parkland motivational song.... A few of the songs, such as "The Grass Is Always Greener" (Tim's song) skew notably towards toddlers. But current Kids Place Live single "Raindrop" is a definite age-defying earwig. The power of positivity grows in every child and Suzi encourages you to embrace and meet that challenge, hand in hand."

What Moms Really Want for Mother's Day:

6. All the kids under one roof

"What I really want for Mother's Day is to have both of my kids home with me. My daughter is 13 so she is still at home, but my son is a sophomore in college and we miss him a lot. The good news is that he's supposed to come home for the summer the day before Mother's Day so it looks like I will get my wish!"

CATCHY MUSIC ENGAGES KIDS JUST LIKE IT DOES ADULTS

This particular song is so catchy that we all found ourselves singing it throughout the day. My five year old could be heard singing 'Five little lady bugs...' in his bed last night before he fell asleep!

Hand in Hand

The award-winning singer-songwriter presents an uplifting album on May 11

New York, Spring 2018 – Suzi Shelton, known for her “heartfelt songs that span a lot of childhood territory”(Parents’ Choice) and “hummable, kid-friendly tunes” (NY Daily  News), will release her fourth solo album for families this spring: Hand in Hand on May 11. Suzi plans several concerts to celebrate the release as well as a Facebook Live concert on May 10.

Inspired by a challenge from her Brooklyn based women’s songwriting group, Suzi offers her signature “catchy, danceable pop-rock songs that connect directly with kids” (BaristaNet), while delving into more sophisticated stylings and production. Hand in Hand includes nine upbeat songs to encourage self-discovery, expression and kindness. Some of the tunes are childlike and whimsical, about things like ladybugs and raindrops and blue fin fish. Others are meant to be inspiring, like “Can You Feel the Power,” “The Grass Is Always Greener,” “River Come Down,” and “We Shall Walk.” The lyrics emphasize inclusion and believing in one’s own power to do good. “I want to encourage kids and let them know that they can be comfortable in their own skin and express themselves joyously,” says Suzi .

GRAMMY winning artist and former Sprout TV host Tim Kubart sings on the tune “Grass Is Always Greener,” and Brooklyn kindie stars Vered Ronen (Baby in Tune), Amelia Robinson (Mil’s Trills) and Katie Mullins (Katie Ha Ha Ha) add vocals to “Can You Feel the Power?”  The toe-tapping finger-snapping traditional children’s song “Ladybugs” includes swinging Andrews Sisters style harmonies by Bess Rogers and Hannah Winkler. Hand in Hand was engineered, produced and mixed by Greg Mayo and Dan Weiner, who together with Suzi aimed to create an eclectic pop album with a modern feel. Children’s voices add lift to peppy and positive songs like the first track, “Put Your Hands in the Air,” and Suzi’s 13 year old daughter Emma wrote and performed on the song, “We Shall Walk.”

Suzi and her band have performed in such prestigious venues including Symphony Space, BAM, the Lincoln Center Tree Lighting Ceremony, and even The White House. Suzi is best known for her crowd pleasing "fist pumping" songs like "Goin' On A Road Trip," and "Go, Fire Truck, Go," as well her lovely lullaby rendition of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."

The proud mother of two children, Suzi also works and performs regularly with students at area schools. MomTrends called Suzi “one of our favorite musicians,” and the Brooklyn Spectator noted, “When Suzi Shelton takes the stage with her guitar and her band, you know that something special is about to happen.” Indeed, Suzi and her band plan a busy spring and summer concert schedule, including a pre-release show for NYC families at Brookfield Place on April 14th.  Suzi is also working on her fifth season of FREE Sing with Suzi videos on YouTube, and she is constantly creating new songs and video content for her preschool fans.

SUZI'S VIRTUAL ONE SHEET - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SMILE IN MY HEART 

Brooklyn Spectator

When Suzi Shelton takes the stage with her guitar and her band, you know that something special is about to happen.

It isn’t just the fact that when she sings, the kids in the audience gravitate towards the stage like flies to honey, or the fact that she is often flanked by backup singers comprised of her children and their young friends. Although both of these attest to the unique appeal of Shelton and her music, it is ultimately the music and its lyrics that capture the attention of every child and parent in the audience.
