I recently discovered Meg Russell when there was an opportunity to see her perform live through a meetup with my local playgroup. While I wasn’t able to attend, I reached out to Meg because my daughter just loves music and dancing. I was eager to listen to her new music CD, called “Juggling”.
“Juggling” is a fun, upbeat CD with lyrics that both children and parents will relate to. It’s got a very folk feel that is heavy on guitar, which I absolutely love. Emma and I cannot help but dance when Meg’s song come on. There are five tracks total:
- All By Myself – Every time I hear this song it brings tears to my eyes. Her son even joins in for the refrain. It so very cute and touching.
- Proud of You – A song about our pride for our kids’ accomplishments.
- Bedtime Chat – A sweet bedtime song about a child resisting what parents probably crave most – sleep!
- I Understand – Of course we understand, we were all kids once. Wanting dessert for dinner and every toy in the store.
- Juggling – The title track, about all of that juggling we do as moms. This is really fun and upbeat.
Meg is a proud mother of two boys, who are her inspiration. Her father, a Julliard graduate, and her mother instilled a love of music in her throughout her life. She has been a special ed school teacher for over 11 years.
