Album Notes
Juliana McCorison was born in England, raised in Canada and left a part of her heart in Australia. Having said this, the vast majority of her friends are in the US, which makes her a truly international musician.

While classical music was her first love, folk and filk followed. After many years of dreaming of the opportunity to share the music she loved, Juliana finally built a recording studio and made this dream a reality with \"Not Just Lullabies from Planet Earth\".

This CD covers a fair bit of ground. The common thread is a gentle, melodic and varied set of arrangements, comprising of cello, guitars, flute, bass flute, dulcimers, mandolin, glockenspiel, unique instruments of percussion, harp, whistles and bass. The vocals are clear and diction is valued so you can actually understand the lyrics.

Juliana started playing guitar early and enjoyed hanging around the coffeehouses and the local YMWCA accumulating tab and experience. After years of studying classical voice, she turned back to folk and then, in the 80\'s discovered the music of the science fiction/fantasy folks.

Filk, a mispelling of the word folk, was fun and accessible. An inclusive community of music and literature lovers, they developed playful and entertaining songs that relate to fantasy and science fiction themes. What is filk? Anything that is performed at a science fiction convention or song circle. Folk is frequently indistinguishable from filk and many mainstream musicians produce songs considered filk by filkers, on a regular basis.

Call it what you will, \"Not Just Lullabies from Planet Earth\" is a lovely collection of songs that playfully entertain and provide a gentle space in which to spend time.

Excellent folk album with whimsical features and not-so-typical instruments
Similar to the music of Joan Baez, Juliana McCorison’s latest, “Not Just Lullabies From Planet Earth,” brings a refreshing, sometimes whimsical taste of Folk music. McCorison offers a clean and crisp vocal quality that is sweet and charming. Never outshining the lead vocals, the harmonies are in perfect musical sync. It’s a refreshing change of pace to hear not so typical instruments on an album. For example, McCorison has incorporated the use of cello, glockenspiel, dulcimers, and mandolin, offering truly tender, melodic music. Let your mind take you on a relaxing trip to the island of tropical music when you hear “Isle Au Haut,” which begins with the soothing sound of ocean waves. “Close Your Eyes” describes in detail how there are nightmares and demons in your mind and in and under your bed. The track’s theme is clever how it speaks of children’s fears, yet it is still moving to an adult as they can relate to the child within themselves. The use of the cello is striking, but played with such passion. Juliana McCorison has created a remarkable folk compilation, full of innovating yet gentle musical pleasure, with “Not Just Lullabies From Planet Earth.”

Beautiful Voice!!!
I was fortunate to hear this CD in several stages of recording. Juliana is meticulous and the CD is a credit to her desire that everything be perfect for the audience. Juliana\'s voice is so sweet! The songs range from happy, funny, sad, deep - they cover the range of human emotion. It\'s lovely to listen to - or have on as soft background music!


\"Isle Au Haut\" will take you away to a warm tropical place, \"My Champion\" will make you think of a special loved one. Ms. McCorison dances through the range of human emotions with deft and skill, leaving you very glad you spent the money for her CD.


This is really good!
Julianna\'s beautiful voice combined with her careful selection of instruments and mixing choices make this album one you will listen to over and over. Some songs are funny, many are gorgeous, and all are going on my iPod for frequent listening. Well chosen songs that will make you feel good, but too interesting to put you to sleep.


wonderful arrangements
Isle Au Haut, Blow the Moon Out, Aly's Lullaby and Monster's Lullaby are particular favourites.

Beautiful Music
These "lullabies" are not likely to put you to sleep. Instead, you'll be too fascinated by the lovely voice and the supporting arrangements. There are original songs and covers, but the loving attention to detail in the music and the production brings freshness to everything on the CD.

Loved the Songs
I was blown away by the variety of emotions I could feel in listening to the sound samples. I had to buy the CD!

They are right -- there isn\'t too much cello. Just the right amount. The mix of musicians and quality of vocals is top notch and I\'m going to be listening to this CD for a long time. Thanks!!
