Hooray!!!! A New Kids Album
It feels so incredible to be able to begin this project without the massive extra effort of finding the funds.
This project will encompass a new children’s music video, for my children’s song “ECHO” starring my very gorgeous and talented neice Tasmin van Riel.
I’m excited to be working with audio engineer and producer Danny Fairley from Mirrors Studios again. Together we’ve already created two NZ Tui nominated albums (Whistle & Hum and Cooking up a song) and with Danny on my team I feel confident we’ll have another great album on our hands.
Animator Traci Meek will be collaborating on the music video, which will be filmed by videographer Ollie Larkin.
The storyline depicts a young girl who is sitting at her bedroom window star gazing.
One star in particular shines extra bright and calls her out into the wintery night.
The girl (Tasmin) makes her way through an enchanted garden and into her treehouse where she can get closer to her wishing star.
The sky shows the constellation of Matariki (aka pleiades) which corresponds with NZ’s Maori New Year.
I’m incredibly excited to kick of this project, and immensely grateful to NZ on Air for the opportunity. This new funding grant for children’s music feels like a hugely positive step for Kiwi Kids Music.
