    Hooray! We’ve got a little one entering the ranks of humanity soon, so it’s nice to see good children’s music for us to expose our child to. Carson’s cover looks beautiful as well!

    Hi Laura,
    I saw you pregnant on stage at your wonderful concert in Hamburg/Germany last year. I guess that the new album has been strongly influenced by these ‘circumstances’ or better by what happened a few months later:)?

    Best regards

    hi laura. i have written to your record company about getting the license to use “make something good” for a video of my project. the video will be showcasing in my upcoming exhibition during the london design festival. it will be a perfect song for my project which is about making a bowl of tomato soup slowly. fingers crossed that they would approve. would really like u to see it. u can read more about it on my blog.

    Hi Laura
    Thank you so much for this wonderful music. My children just went on school camp for a few days and while they were away I painted their bedroom while listening to Tumble Bee through NPR. It helped me hold them in my heart.
    I hope it goes well. Please bring that beautiful bubba to Australia.
