Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights: I’m a Rock Star – CD Review & Giveaway (Closed)

Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights are releasing their newest album titled I’m a Rock Star, today, March 23, 2010. We love music in our household. Papa Bird plays the guitar and Baby Bird and I love to sing and dance. I’ve never listened to Joanie Leeds before and we are always trying to introduce Baby Bird to a wide range of music (not just stuff we listen to) so I thought this would be a great chance to try something new, and I’m glad I did.

Joanie Leeds Rock Star CD CoverThis CD is perfect for listening to with kids. The songs, written by Joanie, cover both a wide range of topics and genres. From country to dance, Baby Bird and I were bopping away.

I have two favorite tunes from the CD. The first is titled I Wanna Be Green. The song has a nice country sound to it and sings about — you guessed it — being green. It reminds me of a really old song I heard as a child called “I’m Gonna Stand Up On the Mountain”.

The second song is called I Like Jazz and, right again, it has a beautiful jazz rhythm to it. The songs are a good length for kids to keep them entertained and the words and beat is very uplifting and happy. With the CD has a pull-out poster-like sheet that has the lyrics on it as well as a small introduction for each song.

Joanie’s picture is in the CD case as well behind the CD. I’m telling you now, Baby Bird only shares her snacks with people she likes so Joanie, you should feel extra special because after listening to a couple of songs, she tried to feed you her Cheerios!

This CD is available for purchase online on their website for the price of $15.00US. You can also buy individual downloads of each song at for $0.99 each.

Joanie has offered to give one of my readers a copy of this CD as a giveaway…
