about

"A Pocket Full of Lullabies" was an idea sparked by Krista's colleague Sarah Brodie (fellow dreamer, colleague and Art Therapist) who invited her to perform and teach lullabies to new parents at her practice in Burlington, Ontario. In February 2015 Krista collected and arranged traditional and modern lullabies and was inspired by her sister/niece, godchildren and other raggle-taggle sweethearts and wrote a series of original songs for ukulele and voice using simple chord progressions.

What you are listening to are these very songs. Sparked by a love of story-telling and rooted in oral tradition and musical memory, we hope these songs become a part of your life in sweet and unexpected ways. We've added the lyrics and song sheets so that you can sing and play along if you have a ukulele (ideally linear tuning in C).

This project was made possible in part by the CALQ. French lyrics edited by Roxanne Arsenault. Photograph taken by Nelson Tam at the April 18th Rusholme Salon Show where Krista was an Artist in Residence. Recorded and mixed by Guillermo Subauste (www.pachasound.com) in Toronto, April 2015. Mastered using LANDR. (www.landr.com/en)

A e I o a e I o u a e I o u u
Y? je te donnerai un bec!

Oh mes voyelles je vous adore, sans vous il n'y a pas de aaaaah
The long the short the middle end you are the tra la laaaa
Track Name: Allonge Ta Jolie Tete
Assis sur la pelouse
Il y avait un déluge
Mais je serai ton parapluie
Gli gli gli gli gli gli

A côté de la mer
Une tempête est dans l'air
le temps parfait pour chan chanter
Tra la la la la lay

Au coeur de février
Tout est glacé, gelé
Mais je serai ta chouette couette
Cou cou cou cou couette

Allonge ta jolie tête
Ma chou chou chou chouette
Chou chou chou chou chouette
Allonge ta jolie tête
Track Name: Down Below
Would you really like to know
What goes on down below?
Would you really like to know my baby?

There’s a place I’d rather go
Where the soft embers glow
But the hall of doubt is long my baby

And as I walk down this hall
One by one they will call
But I hear you crying my baby

Your sweet face a spark of light
Setting fire to this night
Embers they are glowing bright my baby

Would you really like to know
What goes on down below?
Would you really like to know my baby?

Your sweet face a spark of light
Setting fire to the night
Embers they are glowing brighter baby
Track Name: No Matter How Far
Reach for the stars
don't let anyone stop you
No matter how far
no matter how broken you are

Reach for yourself
no one else can reach you
stop watching the clock
and let everything teach you

And please be patient - and please be kind

Reach for the stars
don't let anyone stop you
not even yourself
though it might be tempting

Reach for your heart
no one else can reach it
if you won't unveil
if you don't unleash it

And please be gentle - and please be strong
Track Name: All Through The Night
I’ll hold you in my arms
I’ll hold you in my thoughts
I’ll hold you in my heart
All through the night

Je te tiendrai dans mes bras
Je te tiendrai dans mes rêves
Je te tiendrai dans mon Coeur
Tout au long de la nuit
