bright siders album

I'm sure you are familiar with the Smithsonian Institute's museums, but did you know they also have a music label with a focus on keeping the genre of folk songs alive. Earlier this week I shared with you some coloring books sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute and today here is some news about a new children's music album they've produced called A Mind of Your Own.

A Mind of Your Own is the debut release from The Bright Siders, the duo of acclaimed songwriter and musician Kristin Andreassen and NYC child psychiatrist Kari Groff, MD. Brimming with uplifting and empowering songs, the album invites its listeners to think deeply on feelings and emotions that come with growing up, while focusing on resilience and mindset. 

Along with a slew of all-star guests including Ed Helms, The War and Treaty, Oh Pep!, The Hokes (a.k.a. Punch Brothers), Gaby Moreno, and more, The Bright Siders bring profound sensitivity and vivacity to songs about friendship, bullying, anger, acceptance of others, and coping with sadness and change.
