Music Monday: Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights new CD "I’m a Rock Star" Review


If you are looking for an album that you will enjoy listening to just as much as your kids, I highly recommend this new release! In Joanie’s words “The blueprint for I’m A Rock Star includes exploration, self-expression, and variety, all in a musically authentic context.  I wanted everything to be fun and positive, but it was also important for me not to make musical compromises.  Kids deserve no less than an authentic musical experience.” If you didn’t listen to the lyrics you would have no idea that this CD was marketed for children as the melodies, genres and instrumentation aren’t “dummied down”, but full of musical and rhythmic interest.

This CD was just released last week and almost every song uses a different genre which keeps it engaging, entertaining and fun for you and your kids. My favorite song, being a jazz singer so to speak, is “I Like Jazz” where she playfully sings the lyrics of beloved nursery rhymes to a jazz melody. “I Wanna Be Green” encourages kids to be eco-conscious and has a melody that I catch myself humming during the day, “Give Me a Hug” is a sweet ballad and “I’m a Rock Star” has a country pop sound every girl or boy will want to put their shoes in. This CD is a really fun listen and a great way to teach about different genres of music with kid-friendly lyrics.

There are 13 songs on this album and be sure to check out her album samples as well as her other previous releases. I love the “Sushi” song sample from her last album and I am contemplating getting it for my daughter’s birthday next month!
