ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LANA RAE –I GOTTA BE ME!
WINNER of the 2006 WESTERN CANADIAN MUSIC AWARD for Outstanding Children’s Album

Gumball Records and Quizam Media congratulate Lana Rae on her 2006 WCMA AWARD for Outstanding Children’s Album –Lana Rae-I Gotta Be Me!,

Yukon singer songwriter, Lana Rae, was thrilled to take home her Western Canadian Music Award for - “Lana Rae-I Gotta Be Me”.

Arriving back in the Yukon to fanfare and a beautiful white limo, Lana Rae proudly held up her award, which was won in Winnipeg at the 2006 Western Canadian Music Awards.
It was an exciting weekend that included a performance with Bob King and House of Doc at the awards show and sharing the stage with Jann Arden while the awards were presented.

“Yukoners have been absolutely wonderful in their support. I am so proud to bring this home to them to say thanks to everyone who has encouraged me, bought CDs, attended concerts and believed in my music.”

Parents are saying, “It is simply the best kids CD we own”, “Thanks for the hours of enjoyment with our three kids…It’s absolutely delightful!”

Lana Rae is a Mom, teacher and songwriter whose songs are able to bridge a gap between kids and their parents. Her songs take a universal, humorous look at childhood and parenting while avoiding the temptation to talk down to kids.

The title track, “I Just Want To be Little” off her first children’s CD, has become an anthem of sorts for kids from one to ninety-two!

"teaching grade three, I looked around at all the little faces and realized how lucky they were not have all the responsibilities of adulthood and wondered why we were pushing them to grow up so fast!”

Lana Rae loves to talk to Moms and Dads about her source of musical inspiration because, “Parents everywhere in the world share so many of the same experiences ….”

You may not think that "Lumps in Your Socks " is an important issue in the face of world crisis but a five-year old child would disagree. Inspired by a son who could not bear to wear socks, Lana Rae began her hilarious, and rewarding journey as a children performer and songwriter.

As a unique singer, songwriter, performer, mother, entrepreneur and schoolteacher all rolled into one creative force, Lana Rae is originally from New Westminster B.C. but has resided in Whitehorse, Yukon for many years.

Her early influences of pop, then country resulted in an incredible country CD entitled Nichols and Rae, "Never Too Late For Love", which she recorded on music row in Nashville Tennessee with some of Nashville's hottest session players.

In 1997, however, she took an abrupt turn and found her greatest inspiration coming from her three children who encouraged her through daily life experiences to write and record 2 Children's CDs, "I Just Want To Be Little" and the newly released "I Gotta Be Me".

Lana Rae's first release "I Just Want to Be Little" is aimed at anyone who has ever been a kid! It offers an incredible blend of original songs that have kids dancing and singing, while parents are humming the unforgettable hooks! The lyrics and music include catchy titles like; "Lumps In My Socks", "Mud Is My Bud", and "Cows Want To Be Pretty Too". Delivering a new edge to the children's market, this CD was nominated for a West Coast Music Award in 2002 and chosen as the Canadian Children's Book Centre Choice.
In 2004 Quizam media www.quizam approached the songwriter with an offer to collaborate on their innovative computer quiz game called Quizam. As a result Lana Rae's songs have been incorporated with the program and are being heard throughout school systems in North America and Great Britain.
The new release, Lana Rae "I Gotta Be Me" will have as much appeal to adults as it does to children while it continues the amazing journey through childhood using life experience as the creative force behind the 11 original, funky, laugh 'til you cry, rocking tracks. Whether performing solo or with a band, Lana Rae's songs successfully transport the listener to a time of childhood fun and imagination. The lyrics and melodies have an edge of sophistication while retaining a humourous quality that appeals to "kids of all ages"..........reminding you that growing up is a state of mind and totally optional.
