Album Notes
A 2007 Parents' Choice Award Winner

Have you heard of Lullaby Island?
It’s far across the sea.
Climb into your little bed
And I’ll tell the tale to thee...

This poem leads children on a journey to Lullaby Island. Fairies greet them at the dock and gently breathe sleep songs into their ears. Sometimes there are nightingales, sometimes owls, but always sweet singing and the kind of instruments you might find on a fairy boat, harp, guitar, recorder. If you’re ready, grab a blanket close your eyes and away we sail...

As well as being the mummy of a kindergartener, I run lullaby workshops, teach singing to individuals and groups in the San Francisco Bay Area and write music for theatre and circus.

Jasmine Ojeda created the dreamy artwork which wraps around a 6 panel digipack (those cardboard ones..not a jewel case). The inside panels have fairies holding a banner to welcome you to Lullaby Island. Diana Stork and Randy Clark play Celtic harp and guitar & Jeffrey Wood an award winning producer from Fantasy studios in Berkeley, recorded and produced all 18 songs and two more that didn't fit on the album!.

I hope you enjoy all 54 minutes of this CD. It's dedicated to my son Finlay who sings a little of 'row your boat' over the waves at the beginning and who has made me sing the Gartan Mother's lullaby to him every night for the last 9 months!

The first official critique regarding: 'I'm Here to Sing You to Sleep'

"What an amazing vocal this is Julia! You have that combination of domestic hearth and wild, windswept moors that characterizes the best of Celtic folk singers. This is a faultless performance!"

As soothing for a stressed out mother as it is for a 2 month old infant with colic and her 2 1/2 year old sister. Wonderful.

Gwen Loeb

Pure perfection! My one-year-old daughter was entranced!
"This CD is pure perfection! My one-year-old daughter was entranced from the moment she saw the enchanting cover art through every single one of the hauntingly gorgeous songs. Each song is filled with images perfectly suited to a child's most magical dreams, and Julia Norton's voice is an embrace filled with comfort and love. Listening to this CD brought back my own childhood memories of tent forts and flashlights, sleep-overs filled with late night whispers, and rambles in the woods when fairies were always just around the next corner. I know we will be playing this CD nightly for years to come and feel sure that the images that this music inspires will help to make the world a more wonder-filled, magical, and loving place for my daughter."

original pieces mixing with Hawaiian and celtic fantasias in a sleep-inducing so
"My six year old boy has been listening to the same lullaby CD for years, but after hearing Julia's hauntingly sweet arrangements happily relocated to Lullaby island. The collection is wonderfully diverse - original pieces mixing with Hawaiian-inspired melodies and celtic fantasias in a sleep-inducing sound tapestry."

"While I was pregnant I began the arduous task of looking for the perfect lullaby CD. It was rough going. Hours of listening to clips on various websites, and not really feeling that anything out there was quite as special as I wanted it to be. And then I heard Julia's CD. It was actually perfect. It is a luscious, heartfelt blend of Julia's mesmerizing voice along with traditional and original music uniquely arranged. This is a CD that I will listen to over and over again, and something magical I will share with my daughter for many years to come. As a childbirth educator and birth doula (as well as a new mom), I will heartily recommend this soothing and enchanting music to pregnant women and new families." ~ Kathleen Paris, Certified Massage Therapist, Childbirth Educator

Played Every Night at Our House
This is a beautiful C.D. from start to finish our entire family was captivated by the lovely singing, storytelling and music. My favorites are the originals. Such lyrical writing. We don't go to bed without it. Love IT!!!


Melodic Lullabies for Babies and Adults!
My 3 1/2 year old son, his father, grandmother and I listened to this beautiful lullaby music over and over again on a Friday evening - and Saturday and Sunday etc etc... These wonderful songs warm your heart and give a much needed break from the Rockaby Baby and Hush Little Baby oldies. Well done - would would recommend to everyone from birth to 92!

Joe Evans

Just lovely... My two children love this CD.
'Lullaby Island' is a really beautiful album. It's a mix of traditional songs and original music, with quite sparse, delicate instrumentation and a really magical feel. It absolutely captures the combination of comfort, security and excitement that little children love. In particular, Julia Norton's voice has a really arresting quality. When I first put the CD on, my daughter (20 months old) stopped what she was doing and sat up to listen - it seemed to catch her attention in a way that few pieces of music do. I would recommend it to any parent.

Diane McAdam

Hauntingly beautiful voice not just for kids - insomniacs delight
Lullaby Island is a really lovely eclectic collection of the old and new. Great old celtic sytle classics with some contemporary stuff thrown in for good measure. I just love it and am sending ot to my friends with kids coz they are going to love it too. Such a refreshing change from the tired old worn standards.

Jacqui Rae

This is truly a wonderful album for children and adults alike. The songs are magical and sung beautifully, so much so that at the end of the CD you just want to hit the play button again. More interesting and original compared to other lullaby songs I have heard over the years. Every home should have a copy!

carol grimes

For babies and children and those who love them.
Mothers and Fathers, Grandmothers and Grandfathers,
friends and lovers.............
and those of us who need a lullaby or two. Or more !
This is the music for you.
A compelling, harmonious balm for the the child who loves to be sung to sleep.
Musical moments for the troubled unquiet mind in a sometimes cruel and cacophonous world.
Some moments of peace. Lovely lovely.
