"Juggling" Music by Meg Russell - Review + Giveaway!

Contest Closed
I recently discovered Meg Russell when there was an opportunity to see her perform live through a meetup with my local playgroup.  While I wasn't able to attend, I reached out to Meg because my daughter just loves music and dancing.  I was eager to listen to her new music CD, called "Juggling".

"Juggling" is a fun, upbeat CD with lyrics that both children and parents will relate to.  It's got a very folk feel that is heavy on guitar, which I absolutely love.  Emma and I cannot help but dance when Meg's song come on.  There are five tracks total:
  1. All By Myself - Every time I hear this song it brings tears to my eyes.  Her son even joins in for the refrain.  It so very cute and touching.
  2. Proud of You - A song about our pride for our kids' accomplishments.
  3. Bedtime Chat - A sweet bedtime song about a child resisting what parents probably crave most - sleep!
  4. I Understand - Of course we understand, we were all kids once.  Wanting dessert for dinner and every toy in the store.
  5. Juggling - The title track, about all of that juggling we do as moms.  This is really fun and upbeat.
Meg is a proud mother of two boys, who are her inspiration.  Her father, a Julliard graduate, and her mother instilled a love of music in her throughout her life.  She has been a special ed school teacher for over 11 years.

BUY IT!  "Juggling" is available directly through Meg Russell's website or through iTunes, Amazon, CD-Baby or Digistation.

WIN IT!  One lucky reader will win a copy of "Juggling"!
