Editors’ Notes

Children’s music with its roots in folk and country? That’s what Elizabrth Mitchell, husband Daniel Littleton and daughter Storey bring to the children’s music genre. Much like Uncle Rock and Dan Zanes, who guests on this release, Mitchell slips in Americana influences so kids don’t suffer a sugar crash and parents can find some inner peace. Sure, a song like “Shoo Lie Loo” might be a bit repetitive for adult ears, but a classic country tune such as the Carter Family’s “Keep On the Sunny Side” and Junior Parker’s and Elvis Presley’s hit “Mystery Train,” along with Chuck Berry’s “School Days” make for a musical program that both adults and children can love together. The guest list is heavy on esteemed musicians: Levon Helm from the Band, Jon Langford of the Mekons and Warren DeFever of His Name Is Alive join the family to make everything that much more festive and authentic. Even a few lullabies, like John Martyn’s “Fairy Tale Lullaby” and “Little Buckaroo,” alongside a traditional tune like the sweet and lulling “Green Green Rocky Road,” make this a special collection.

Customer Reviews

Sweet, calm and powerful.

Elizabeth Mitchell's voice is so authentic. My 4 yr old and I love singing along. There is a very calm, powerful energy running through all of EM's music and on this album it seems even more clear. It seems that all the musicians are in sync with each other in a very deep way.

Great Elizabeth Mitchell

We have nearly all of EM's albums and our favorite is You are My Little Bird, that is until now. The songs on Sunny Day are so interesting and pleasing to listen to whether you are in the car or preparing dinner. I'm so glad that she is continuing to make great meaningful albums for everyone in the family. Be sure to read the digital booklet, she wrote a little history about each song. Check out her other albums too. I particularly like Catch the Moon that is by Lisa Loeb and features EM and was my initial exposure to EM. LMS

My fourth Elizabeth Mitchell album

Another gem from Elizabeth Mitchell. Music that adults can enjoy with their kids.I am thrilled to have my child exposed to classic American songs as well as some foreign language. I hear her singing a song in Korean and English in the other room as I write this.
