ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“I am 4, 5, 6” is an album of original songs by Margot Bevington about imagination, creative problem solving, and finding your heart. As the title suggests, the album is intended for families with children ages 4-6. Ms. Margot focuses on the milestones, pastimes, and concerns of this age group, such as learning to read, creative play, and a child’s first look at thinking about others and the world. Each song expresses ways that children can both enjoy life’s wonders and tackle challenges with creativity and compassion.

The album features Ms. Margot’s clear vocals, oftentimes blended with intricate vocal harmonies. The all-acoustic production favors a natural, warm sound. Bevington also plays piano, guitar, and auxiliary percussion- which ranges from tambourine and claves to water xylophone and giant water jug for “Recycle it With Heart.” Guests play flute, harp, and acoustic double bass, and she welcomes fellow children’s artists “Uncle” Devin Walker and John Cullimore of Chibi Kodama on drum set and vocals respectively. Children participate with vocals as well- joining in with Ms. Margot in a choral setting and in creating vocal sound effects. Grammy winning engineer Luke Rohwer edits, mixes, and masters this rich tapestry of audio with occasional “found” sounds- train whistles, machine sounds, playground, and swingset sounds- to achieve a truly vivid aural illustration for the stories presented in each song.

Ms. Margot’s wish for this album is that families use it as a way to celebrate the momentous development going on in their 4-6 year olds. Families can nurture the imagination, creativity, and empathy of young listeners by using the songs to encourage questions, creative play, reading, finding friends, or doing something to help others. Ms. Margot draws attention to this pivotal period of development with these beautifully detailed songs, tunefully engaging children to use creativity and empathy to make a positive difference in our world.

Sweet and Perfect for CHILDREN!
I think "Invent" is my favorite song on this album...it so perfectly expresses the inventive minds of a child. Margo Bevington has a unique approach to children and music. So much music today, supposedly made for children, is simply Pop music with the bad words cut out. Ms. Bevington truly writes music for kids. Aided by her Washington DC collaborators, Margo has hit the mark spot on!
