On October 16, SUKEY MOLLOY will release her fourth album, I AM SLEEPY! with Sukey Molloy. Featuring songs, stories, poetry, and lullabies, the new album is a companion to Molloy’s recent release, I AM HAPPY!. Today, The Rock Father is featuring the first video from the new album, “The Story of Twinkle Little Star.” Watch it below…
Of the new album, Molloy states: “I wanted to give parents a recording that they could use to help create a peaceful, soothing, beautiful atmosphere that would nourish a sense of comfort and joy for a wide age range – toddler, preschooler, or a mother with a newborn infant.”
From the Official Press Release: I Am Sleepy! blends traditional (and not often heard) lullabies, original songs that Sukey composed especially for nighttime listening, and stories and poetry she created with the intention of bringing a sense of both security and mystery at bedtime. The album weaves its way through a calming, quiet, yet always engaging and sometimes playful nighttime “under the stars” tapestry imbued with the sounds of crickets, owls, and lambs. Sukey’s gentle storytelling and vocals are complemented by the contributions of her classically trained musician friends on harp, recorder, violin, dulcimer, guitar, bass, and piano
While Sukey Molloy’s lyrics and melodies express a sweet, childlike nuance, she doesn’t compromise when it comes to musical integrity and production values. Joining Sukey Molloy as co-producer of I Am Sleepy! is Grammy-winner Larry Alexander, who has served in this capacity for all four of Sukey’s CDs. Larry brings to this new release his work with some of the biggest stars in the music business, including Diana Ross (six albums), Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Bon Jovi, and David Bowie, to name but a few.
Adds Molloy, “My husband asked me a few years ago to create a nighttime album because of a special quality he treasures in my singing voice and because of the delight we share in the wonder of childhood. I have fond memories of my mother singing and reading to me at bedtime. I wanted to bring that same warm, cozy sense of security and wonder to listeners young and old, creating a reassuring atmosphere for ‘children’s bedtime’ that could be shared by the entire family. I hope that I Am Sleepy! will take adults back to their childhoods and give children memories to cherish.”
