about

In July of 2012, one of my twin five-year-old daughters was diagnosed with leukemia. It felt like we were drowning. For the first week or so, my wife and I walked around the hospital in a trance. Then I went home and got my guitar.

Over the next hospital-bound month, I sang to Clio almost every day. When she felt up to it, she sang with me and we even started to write songs together (starting with I’m a Little Monkey and Take a Little Walk with Me, included here). Music’s a big part of my life, but I was amazed by the transformative power of what we created together in that hospital room. Music truly can heal.

This project grew out of that experience. I wanted to share what Clio and I discovered with other kids and families traveling similar paths. Over the next few months, I wrote and collected songs that reflected our thoughts and feelings – the love, the pride, the (surprising amount of) joy, and some of the more difficult parts too.

These songs are about all of that. But mostly they’re songs to be sung. Whether you’re a family with a child who’s a patient, a grownup who’s a patient, or just a family who loves each other, these songs are for you – from us.

Alastair, Jane, Elsa & Clio
