About the Album

“The Starlighter, my album of lullabies, was inspired by a book I was given when I was 8 years old called Lullabies And Night Songs. I started piano lessons when I was 6 and could read the music in the book, which was simple but exquisite in its arrangements, composed by Alec Wilder. How I love that book. This record is a follow up to another recording I did 19 years ago called Holiday Songs and Lullabies which contained a few selections from the book. When Amazon Music proposed I do a children’s record I immediately thought of all the songs that remained in the book I love so dearly and knew I wanted to base my album on that. My producer, Doug Petty, coincidentally also received the book at a young age and was a perfect fit to bring the project to life. He’s has done a magnificent job staying true to those beautiful arrangements. I’m extremely proud of this recording.” – Shawn Colvin
