JoJo & The Pinecones

Tell us about your music:  JoJo & The Pinecones bring their skillful musicianship and love of jazz to the family audience. Our first kids album, “Night & Day” is a collection of inspired original songs and thoughtfully curated and reimagined, family-friendly jazz standards. The themes of the album reflect mindfulness and awareness of our daily life including being present for the moments that make up your day from beginning to end and the people that you share that time with. The 'Day' portion of the album is meant to feel energizing and exciting with faster and more upbeat songs to listen to while preparing for and participating in your day where the 'Night' part provides a more soothing and relaxing element, something you might to get ready for bed and go to sleep to.

About your song (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.): Written by Joelle Lurie & Ben Gallina (vocals & bass in the band), we brought in 2016 Grammy winner, Tim Kubart, to be a special guest on this song and made it a fun duet!

What you hope children & families will get from this song: This is a song about the beloved children’s game that definitely promotes our goal and theme for mindfulness in a busy world. It’s important for us all to take the time to notice all the special things among us -- either in the busy city or in the peaceful country.
