ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“How to be a Cloud” is the eagerly anticipated third release from Kira Willey, award-winning songwriter and kids’ yoga expert. The album of upbeat folk-pop tunes is packaged in an eco-friendly digipak with full lyrics and colorful illustrations, and includes 13 songs plus 9 instructional Yoga Tracks.
Willey is a nationally recognized kindie artist and children’s yoga teacher, and the creator of Fireflies Musical Yoga for Kids. Her first two CDs (Dance for the Sun and Kings & Queens of the Forest) have won Parents' Choice and Independent Music Awards, among many others. Her songs include the hits “Colors” (featured in a worldwide Dell advertising campaign in 2008) and “Roller Coaster,” which won the Independent Music Award for Best Children’s Song; both get regular play on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live regularly airs Kira’s “Backseat Yoga Break” series, and she’s also the host of a new yoga-for-kids series of interstitial programs airing on selected PBS TV affiliates. In September, Willey led sessions with hundreds of teachers at the National Kids Yoga Conference in Washington DC, and teaches various youth workers how to work with children and yoga.
Sweet vocals, catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics are the hallmarks of Willey’s style. The album opens with an invitation to celebrate the moment with “My Favorite Day.” “Gotta Lotta Happy” and other songs invite heart-opening gratitude for the joy of life, and the title track and others offer a path toward quiet and relaxation. A remix of “Colors” features new rhythms and the rousing voices of 75 kindergarten children recorded at a recent live performance at Donegan Elementary School in Bethlehem, PA.
On "How To Be a Cloud," melody, lyrics and activity blend seamlessly together. Willey’s bright and easy instructions on the Bonus Yoga Tracks are simply suggestions -- children, parents and teachers may explore other movements to go along with each song, as Willey remarks in the liner notes. At a time when schools are dropping both music and physical fitness from the curriculum, songs like these can provided much-needed moments of movement and tranquility during the busy day.
“Kids need to move their bodies, it’s how they learn best,” notes Kira, who is also the mother of three children. “And music is a great way to get them moving. Tell a child to do something, and you may encounter resistance--but start singing, or use a catchy melody, and kids are suddenly engaged and having fun!”
