A Laurie Berkner Christmas

New Laurie Berkner Christmas CD Doesn’t Dissapoint


USA Today calls her “The undisputed queen of kindie rock.”  Parenting Magazine calls her “The pied piper of preschool,” and Time Magazine labels her as “A kind of sippy-cup Sheryl Crow.” 

The award-winning recording artist, Laurie Berkner, has just released her first ever Christmas album from the Two Tomatoes Records/Razor & Tie recording label.  On this album, she is accompanied her band mates, Susie Lampert, Adam Bernstein and Bob Golden on keyboards, bass and percussion.  Respected recording artists Brady Rymer and Elizabeth Mitchell also join in on this album, which was released October 30, 2012.

This CD includes a total of 15 tracks with popular tunes like “Jingle Bells,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “Frosty the Snowman” and “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer.  Her rendition of “Silent Night,” featuring Elizabeth Mitchell, is a peaceful and beautiful lullaby as enjoyable to listen to for the parents as it is for the children. 

The addition of “Children Go Where I Send Thee,” featuring Brady Rymer, is upbeat and a fresh addition that doesn’t disappoint.  She also includes a song for those celebrating Hanukkah called “Candle Chase.” 

Three original songs are recording on this album by the highly acclaimed artist.  These are “Santa’s Coming To My House,” “Candy Cane Jane” and “Christmas Lights.”  The music video for “Candy Cane Jane” has been uploaded to YouTube by the Laurie Berkner Band.  With a tune so catchy and graphics so sugary cute, your little one will request you play it over and over!

You can find The Laurie Berkner Band on Facebook, and well as check out the website at twotomatoes.shop.musictoday.com. The CD retails on this site for $15.  The digital download is available for $9.99 from the website or itunes.  You can also find this CD at Wal-Mart for just under $12.
