More background info about the lullabies:

Frances began writing the lullabies over a decade ago, when Iris was a baby and finished the last song for the collection while parked in Brooklyn on a bright summer day in 2016, before a rehearsal with guitarist Mark Marshall who accompanies Frances on this album. With Frances' clear and gentle soprano voice (reminiscent of Julie Andrews and Oliva Newton John) and Mark's soulful acoustic guitar accompaniment, this collection is highly recommended to parents and grandparents of young children, or to anyone who sometimes needs gentle coaxing to sleep.The lullabies are also intended to be shared as a way to help children living in difficult circumstances – children living in shelters, in hospitals, and with special needs – to find some peace.
