Songs For Kids Who Touch the Stars

songs by Bill Pere, with the LUNCH Ensemble

These songs are not only fun but they have meaningful words and beautiful music"

(a teacher, central CT)

When was the last time you heard songs that speak as much to parents as they do to kids?

Songs For Kids Who Touch the Stars is Bill's third collection of songs, designed to foster positive discussion and interaction between kids and their parents. The songs pick up some of the characters and stories from the preceding CD ("Songs for Kids With Common Scents") and continue the story in new directions. In Bill's typical cinematic style, all the songs interweave together, but can also stand individually. There is dialog between the songs (featuring the Lunch kids) which make the whole thing seem like a stage play.

The recording features Bill's clever, well crafted lyrics, singable music, and harmonies by the LUNCH Ensemble. The tracks are orchestrated with Bill's distinctive full band arrangements featuring 12-string acoustic guitar and Midi guitar.

"All of Us God's Children" was written specially for Bill's live performance at the Special Olympics World Games in 1995. "Rhythms o Our Heart" is a musically and lyrically rich celebration of the way the world all fits together. These songs are light hearted yet carry important meaning for parents and children to share.

12 Tracks, 52 minutes, Lyric Sheet Included !

Proceeds from the sale of this CD (and all of Bill's CD's) go to help Hunger Relief and family service agencies, through Local United Network to Combat Hunger (LUNCH).

If you like lyrically rich songs that have meaning and are fun to hear and sing:

Songs For Kids Who Touch the Stars is part three of Bill's children's collection, which also includes "Songs For Kids Who Like to Think", "Songs For Kids With Common Scents", "Profiles of Connecticut", and the yet-to -be released "Songs for Kids Who Dare to Dream "
