2017 NOMINEE ~ Best Children’s Album of the Year, Explorer of the World
Frances England fell into the kids’ music world by accident. In 2007, she wrote and recorded a little homespun cd called Fascinating Creatures as a fundraiser for her son’s preschool. But word got out, and within a couple of years Frances was performing at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. With a gift for capturing the wonders, simple pleasures, and beauty of childhood, Frances frames her music in ways both children and parents can appreciate. Her sparkly, acoustic pop songs are both catchy and heartfelt.
Fascinating Creatures won the 2007 Oppenheim Platinum Award for Music and AOL named the album one of the Top Ten Children’s CDs of the decade. Her album, Family Tree, was listed as one of the Best CDs of the Decade by Time Out New York Kids, and was named Album of the Year by About.com.
Her latest album, Explorer of the World is a 2017 GRAMMY Nominee and Parents Choice Gold Award Winner, “Frances England’s unique heart-infused lyrics and truly inventive music add up to one gorgeous keeper of an album, as well as an irresistible invitation to unplug and explore a world of adventure as close as a kid’s backyard.”
“Each song is a little treasure of artistry, creativity and heart” – Los Angeles Times
