Susie Tallman

Susie Tallman is the founder of Rock Me Baby Records and produces music for children that parents will love too. The American, classically-trained singer has won many awards from music and parenting organisations that recognise Susie’s passion for music education and enjoyment.

A must-have CD for parents is Lullabies for Sleepy Eyes – probably one of Susie’s best-known collections. On Lullabies for Sleepy Eyes Susie does folk-renditions of lullabies from Welsh, Scottish, Irish, Yiddish, French and Australian traditions. The gentle music is soothing for children and parents who will love the soft melodies with instruments like piano, dobro, guitar, harmonica, and violin. Highlights of the CD are ‘Hush Now, My Baby’, ‘Toora, Loora Loora’ and ‘Summertime’.

Children’s Songs: A Collection of Childhood Favorites has over an hour of joyful renditions of songs like ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’, ‘Who Stole the Cookies from the Cookie Jar?’, ‘Buffalo Gals’ and ‘I’ve Been Working On the Railroad’. The playful symphonies include guitars, train whistles, banjos, accordions and even clanging spoons.

Lullaby Themes for Sleep Dreams is another gorgeous sleeptime collection from Susie of 18 songs to send babies and little ones off to a peaceful slumber. Aimed for children ages pre-birth to three years old, the CD has lilting, folk renditions of traditional and non-traditional lullabies with quiet acoustic guitar and piano. There’s favourites like “Rock-A-Bye Baby’’, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’’ and other lullabies from around the world.

Classic Nursery Rhymes has the comfortable familiarity of the classic songs parents grew up with but a playful and funky twist. There’s a rap version of ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’, a four-year-old’s gorgeous version of ‘I’m a Little Teapot’ and of course, Susie’s harmonious and upbeat renditions of tunes like ‘Itsy Bitsy Spider’, ‘Georgie Porgie’ and ‘This Old Man’. There are 37 tracks on the album for lots of fun sing-a-longs.

Classical Baby sees Susie introduce parents and children to some of the most important classical composers like Mozart, Bach, Brahms and Beethoven. Susie lends her soothing voice to the compositions like ‘Ave Maria’ and ‘Mozart’s Lullaby’. Susie believes in exposing children to a wide variety of music to calm, soothe and educate.

Let’s Go! Travel, Camp and Car Songs is a full-on adventure through music where listeners can daydream about camping holidays – marshmallows over the fire, exploring through the woods, star-gazing and nature hikes. This collection is perfect for long car trips – ‘On Top of Spaghetti’, ‘A Sailor Went to Sea’, ‘Oh! Susanna’ and ‘You are My Sunshine’ are among the tunes that will evoke holiday memories or be the soundtrack for your family vacation.

Susie’s newest collection is Animal Songs.
