Artist: Jennifer Gasoi Album: “Songs For You” CD Review:
Prepare to be genuinely charmed. Jennifer Gasoi has a true talent for writing children’s music.
Her smooth and agile voice is perfectly lovely and expresses sincere enjoyment in singing. You can’t kid a kid. The songs are playful and engaging for any age.
I don’t have toddlers but I would wager that “Songs For You” stands up exceptionally well to repeat listening for both young and old. It isn’t boring music and it isn’t full of repetitions that could drive you mad. It isn’t ‘playing down’ to kids. It happens to be writing for them but the songs themselves are sweet, fun and completely enjoyable.
Standouts for me are “Jumping All Day Long” with its fun guitar additions and “The Pizza Man” which mixes art education, making lunch and learning about vegetables.
If you have kids, or kids to buy for, do yourself a favor and add “Songs For You” to your collection.
