This week sees the release of another dreamtime book/CD collection from Canadian publisher The Secret Mountain, but unlike their last release, the classical "hits" lullaby collection Sleep Softly, this new release is a collection of 21st century folk-pop. It's called Tomorrow Is a Chance To Start Over, and features songs, a story, and clay characters created by Vancouver musician Hilary Grist.
I'll have a review of the album and book soon, but thought that this video was too lovely not to share first. It's for the title track, a melody featuring Grist's clear voice, which hits gorgeous heights on the chorus. The video features the brother-and-sister clay characters Grist created to illustrate the story. Perhaps you'll see the robin whose voice I think Grist is inspired by in the chorus.
