ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Slowtime Lullabies is the second half of The Sleepy Old Town Lullaby project, formerly known as 'Angel on Your Pillow'. Slowtime Lullabies is enchanting and extraordinarily soothing. This new CD of 13 original lullabies and children’s songs focuses on the emotional desire for a safer, more loving, reassuring world for children everywhere. It has been lovingly created with an all real orchestra! (Not one synth.) - Including strings, grand piano, great harp, oboe, bassoon, flute and more! Slowtime Lullabies appeals to children and their parents. To paraphrase Mark Twain’s preface to Tom Sawyer: ‘Although these songs are intended mainly for boys and girls, we hope they will not be shunned by men and women on that account, for part of our plan has been to try pleasantly to remind adults of what they once were themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked.’ This describes perfectly what it is about the best lullabies, the best children’s songs and the best children’s stories that make them relevant and popular throughout successive generations.
All the songs on this CD were written and performed by Steve Stapley and Lynda Hayes, who are married with two children.

Steve Stapley is a prolific and gifted singer songwriter. Born in London England, Steve spent 4 years as a writer and recording artist at DJM. He left London in the 1980’s to write and perform in Los Angeles, where he became a house writer with L.E.M. America. Emotive, intelligent lyrics and beautiful melodies are the hallmark of Steve’s work which includes the French number one single 'Casualty of Love' together with five lyric adaptations on Johnny Halladay's gold album, 'En V.Q’. Steve sang in the rock choir on Evita for the film and soundtrack album, and worked with Sir Tim Rice and Alan Parker road-testing lyrics and melodies for Antonio Banderas. Most recently, he can be heard singing The Gambler as well as being part of the spaghetti western ‘Elvis Choir’, on the score for the BBC Series ‘Blackpool.’

Lynda Hayes is a multi-talented singer, voice-over artist and radio presenter. After graduating from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Lynda toured America singing in clubs and concert venues. Working between London, LA and New York, Lynda has recorded and/or toured with Nik Kershaw (Human Racing), George Michael and Wham! (Lynda sang shared vocals and the lead rap on Young Guns which went to number 3 in the charts worldwide), Lloyd Cole and the Commotions, Meatloaf, Bonnie Tyler, Barry Manilow, All About Eve, Ocean Colour Scene, Spike Milligan, Katrina and the Waves and many others. Lynda had the Christmas number one record in 1994 with Mr. Blobby where she sang lead vocal, backing vocals and was vocal arranger. Her voice has helped sell thousands of products including; Coca Cola, Lincoln Mercury, Mercedes Benz, Martini, Barbie Dolls, Nescafe, American Airlines, Toys R Us and many more. She has presented her own radio talk show; 'Lovin' with Lynda' on London’s LBC - which achieved laudable listening figures and made her a London-wide celebrity. The new Alfa Romeo Guiletta ad features Lynda’s voice. And she has done the 'Noddy' children’s series for the USA, where she sings all 25 songs and is the reader/narrator of all the Noddy stories. She sang the title track for the Lauren Bacall film, ‘The Limit’, as well as a feature vocal on ‘These Boots are Made for Walkin’ in the BBC TV series Blackpool, and is the voice of Ellie in “Ice Age, the Musical”.
