I have been a Mothering Magazine subscriber for the last 6 years so was delighted when they reviewed Lullaby Island this month, hurrah!
"Julia Norton sings traditional and original airs with precision and crystalline clarity. Many tunes are performed a cappella; others are accompanied by guitar and Celtic harp. This lovely album is sure to soothe small souls and bring peaceful slumber."
"Julia Norton's Lullaby Island has everything I love, not just in kid's music, but in all music. The melodies are complex, Norton's voice is airily gorgeous, and the lullabies are original and sweet."
"a truly sweet collection"
"Unlike any other CD in our collection, we are loving the imaginative discussions that this CD can bring to relaxation time. Simply wonderful!"
"A compelling, harmonious balm for the the child who loves to be sung to sleep. Musical moments for the troubled unquiet mind in a sometimes cruel and cacophonous world. Some moments of peace. Lovely lovely."
"Lullaby Island is a huge gift at a time when the physical and emotional touch of the human voice is sorely missing in infancy, not to mention in child and adult-hood."
"What an amazing vocal....you have that combination of domestic hearth and wild windswept moors that characterizes the best of Celtic folk singers. This is a faultless performance!.....The recording and production is first rate! I couldn't help listening to a couple of other cuts, the level of performance and writing here is so strong!"
