It was announced on September 20th that my song "Dream a Little" was named the winner of the Songs From the Heart Folk Music Ontario Award in the Children's category.
I'm not a "children's" performer per se, but I'm humbled to be recognized in this category by FMO, an organization that's near and dear to me. I believe this song can carry different meanings for different people. On the surface, it's a lullaby, cradling a child into a cozy sleep for the night, but I think we all benefit from dreaming a little, envisioning a better world for ourselves and the seven generations ahead.
"Dream a Little" appears on my album Patience, and has also been illustrated into a children's book which will be available soon. In the meantime, please listen to the song here, and if you're near Toronto, please join us to celebrate the Patience album release at Burdock on Thursday, September 28th.
A sincere thanks to Folk Music Ontario for this honour, and I look forward to performing at the annual FMO conference in Mississauga next month.
