New Music: The Oot n’ Oots – “Thank You Universe”

Before I get into this song, I have a confession to make. Nine times out of ten, when I get a kindie album with children singing, I cringe. It’s meant to be cute, I guess, but usually it’s just bad. That’s my opinion. But every once in awhile a band turns the mic over to the younger voice and it works. Point in case, The Oot n’ Oots.

When I first heard Ruth sing on “I Like it Saucy” from the album Electric Jellyfish Boogaloo, I thought she was an older teen at the youngest, maybe early twenties. She wasn’t even 13. Her voice can easily stand alone side some soulful singers who are decades her senior.

Thank You Universe is a light-hearted, yet sorely needed, new single from the band. It reminds the listener to be thankful and joyful. Ruth, now 13 years old, furthers the spectrum of her voice. And while her vocals take center stage, the music on this song is spectacular. There’s no way to pigeon hole it into a single genre. It’s just fun.

New Music: Jazzy Ash – “Teddy Bear”

Jazzy Ash has released some stellar music for kids over the years. The styles have touched on New Orleans jazz, swing music, and even a little Dixieland.

Her next endeavor will be a collection of soul songs which I can’t wait for. The first single, “Teddy Bear“, is a twist on a classic jump rope sing-a-long. The power of her vocals never cease to amaze me. You can hear and feel nothing but pure joy in her voice. Listen to the new song and remember to support these amazing kindie artists.

From Jazzy Ash herself, “The most resilient thing about Black Americans is our ability to find joy in the midst of darkness. Here’s a new song I made with my community. I hope you enjoy it, and maybe give yourself permission to dance.”
