Award winning Australian/New Zealand grassroots singer songwriter Anna van Riel is back with a wholesome serving of delicious melodies in her new interactive children’s album Cooking Up A Song. Primary aged children and adults alike are being delighted by this ukulele playing mother’s cheeky humour, melodic and catchy tunes, and fun and imaginative lyrics.
Cooking Up A Song has been bubbling away for some time in the background, waiting for just the right time to join the menu. It is a far cry from Anna’s previous albums residing in the cabaret, bluegrass and folk genres. Rather it boasts fun and imaginative songs that encourage children to interact through making sound and copying actions - all the while contributing to their positive brain development.
But while the album takes a detour from her much loved grassroots music career, Anna is no stranger to making music that children love, having written and sung children’s songs for many years in the background, one of which landed her the Best Children's Song in the 2010 Australian Dolphin Music Awards.
Co-produced, mixed and mastered by New Zealand electronica musician and producer Danny Fairley, aka Civilian Sol and Arma del Amor, the album promises an exceptional listening experience.
