On May 4, Brooklyn-based artist Suzi Shelton will release her first full-length family music album in six years. Produced by Marc Bazerman, and featuring guest vocals by Mike Messer from The Dirty Sock Funtime Band and Chicago’s own Little Miss Ann, SMILE IN MY HEART is a twelve-track collection of original and traditional songs. Later this week, Suzi will debut the first of several planned music videos from the album, when “Cinnamon Bear” hits the ‘net.

“I tried to include something for everyone in this release. Seeing little faces light up and watching families dancing together brings me so much joy.”Suzi Shelton

Suzi Shelton“Gonna rise it up/gonna share it with you:” the country-pop style sing-along title track “Smile in My Heart” reflects the bright melodies and heartfelt lyrics in Suzi Shelton’s repertoire. Of the music videos coming soon, the call-and-response song “Go, Fire Truck, Go,” (co-written by a 4 year old student from Suzi’s work in local NYC schools) is perhaps the most anthemic and energetic. “The fire truck song always gets the most requests at our live shows,” she says. “Cinnamon Bear” is a wild and happy and free teddy bear, and Suzi’s cover of the Jonathan Richman classic “Ice Cream Man” will get kids clamoring for icy treats. Fans will recognize the song “Tomboy in a Princess Dress,” which gained national kudos and radio play when it was released on Suzi’s 2011 EP by the same name.

While the album already has a release date planned, and a day-of concert set to take place at The Bell House in Brooklyn, a Kickstarter campaign is underway to assist in funding the music videos and album production. Perks include digital downloads of the album,  autographed CDs, exclusive merchandise (including a Cinnamon Bear) and private concerts. Take a look at Suzi’s pitch reel below…
