Kindred

Ages: 0 and upProducer: Renee & Friends Artist: Renee & Friends

With warmth, humor, wisdom and joy, Renee & Friends shares ten well-appointed tracks about who we are and how we should be. From the opening “Kindness is Cool” to “How Did You Get So Sweet?” the lullaby-like mother’s ode to her child’s growing up, Kindred gives us plenty to think and sing about.

“Super Fragile World” gently prompts “change yourself; don’t point your finger at somebody else;” in other words, #BeTheChange.  Moving from choral to hip hop without missing a beat, “Leaders of the World” is a reminder to “shine a light on what unifies us.” The cover of Sammy Cahn’s “High Hopes” is stellar and Cat Stevens’ “Where do the Children Play” never sounded better.

Renee & Jeremy’s friends include guest artists Ziggy Marley, Lisa Loeb, Elizabeth Mitchell, Jennifer Paskow, Chris Stills and more. Top notch musicians buoy the medium and the message. Nary a wagging finger preaches. May we all accept the guidance – and put it to practice.
