FRANCES ENGLAND
If there was ever a Lilith Fair for 5 year olds, Frances England should be the headline act. A new voice out of San Francico, Francis England and her debut album Fascinating Creatures blends folk and indie influences to create a children’s album that the whole family can enjoy. The singer-songwriter brings a little bit of Sarah McLachlan and a little bit of Norah Jones, yet manages to create a sound that is distinctly her own. And while the songs may be about tricycles and picture books, England ’s airy voice and sophisticated songwriting have definite adult appeal.

Moona Luna is the first female-led bilingual band of its kind, but most of all, it’s fun, fun, fun! A bailar!
