Hand in Hand is Suzi Shelton’s fourth album filled with sweet songs that delve into more sophisticated stylings and production. The nine original songs encourage self-discovery, expression and kindness. Some of the tunes are childlike and whimsical, about things like ladybugs and raindrops and blue fin fish. Others are meant to be inspiring and socially conscious.
Comments from our music evaluator:
“Suzi Shelton’s latest CD is a sweet set of songs geared for little ones. It is easy to imagine youngsters immediately responding to such friendly, upbeat tunes as “Can You Feel The Power,” “We Shall Walk,” and “Never Let Go.” Similarly, “Put Your Hands In The Air,” “River Come Down,” and “Blue Fin” are lively numbers that will engage kids and have them acting along with the songs. “Blue Fin” also features some nifty jazzy guitar work that exemplifies how Shelton slips in nice little instrumental bits (like the horns in “Ladybugs,” “River Come Down,” and “The Grass Is Always Greener,” and the “funky sounds” in “Raindrops”) that give an appealing sophisticated vibe to this album.”
