celebratING the everyday magic
Little Wild Music is a little creative endeavour with a big mission:
to celebrate the magic in every extraordinary day of childhood.
With her debut children’s record Little Wild Lullabies, the first release from Little Wild Music, award winning songwriter Claudia Robin Gunn captures snapshots in sound of the lives of her children and their friends in Aotearoa/New Zealand. These are tales scribed in song to reflect back the unique wonder and potential and detail of their experiences.
LITTLE WILD LULLABIES
Little Wild Lullabies is a collection of indie folk ballads and lullabies as much for parents as it is for their little ones, from the award winning NZ songwriter Claudia Robin Gunn.
Anchored in Claudia’s warm and layered vocal harmonies, these songs are amplified with inspired folk pop arrangements and orchestral sound cues designed to provoke the imagination. This is care of the wonderful Lynch family; Bruce and Andy Lynch share production credits, along with musical performances on the record along with musical collaborators Matt Short and Nathan King.
Claudia was drawn to create this mindful and quietly exultant music firstly to survive parenthood herself (most songs were road tested at bedtime when it really counted) and also to send wishes, hope, and a gentle hug in sound to parents and caregivers in their most beautiful, yet challenging hours.
In the three years since her self funded and award nominated children’s record was released these Little Wild songs and many new ones alike have been popping up around Facebook Live shows, school fairs, library story times, theatre Storynights, the Auckland Zoo Band Rotunda, Auckland Kiddie Limits, the Arataki Visitor Centre among the mighty Kauri and more besides.
a little wild life
1) free, untamed, heartfelt, impetuous, exuberant, whimsical, mischievous, merry, starry eyed
2) of the woods, the wilderness, the great unknown
