Greetings from Annie Bryant Tales & Songs!
Annie Bryant is a storyteller and songwriter who loves to transform the joy, laughter, growls and tears of family life into audio stories and songs for children. Inspired by nature's seasons, Annie writes and tells mostly original tales influenced by the ancient tradition of storytelling and fairytales, and woven together with her own enchanting voice and sing-along family folk songs. The Seasonal Collection includes 4 separate audio recordings, each one celebrating the deeper qualities of the four seasons and the rhythms of our natural world. Come Gather explores the quiet of Winter, Wake Up the joy and celebration of Spring, Jump In marks the long adventuresome days of Summer, and Seek & Find gives thanks for the Fall harvest. Perfect as bedtime stories, on long car trips or rainy afternoons, these Waldorf-inspired stories and songs honour and celebrate the magic, wonder and joy of a healthy childhood and the simple miracles of nature.
Annie has performed her Tales & Songs far and wide throughout her homeland of Australia, at festivals, events, schools, libraries and markets, inviting children and families inside her magical Storytent and into the land of story. She currently lives on a little farm with her husband and two sons as well as a collection of furred, feathered and hoofed friends which continue to inspire her story and song journeys.
The Seasonal Collection is available on CD or as a digital download and is best suited for ages 3 to 9 years old (although more often enjoyed by the whole family!).
Annie: Thanks Amanda it's so lovely to join the SouleMama community! One of the most unexpected and wonderful gifts motherhood brought me was the chance to see the world again through the eyes of a child. And seeing how much the simple wonders and magic of life nourished my own children inspired me to write stories and songs that might do the same for others. I tend to write about the 'little things' that as adults, we can often miss in our understandably busy lives, yet for children are absolutely packed with sensory awakening, awareness and delight. The warmth of a freshly laid egg on our skin, the whoosh of the air flying past us as the swing reaches high into the sky, or the gentle sound of the ocean bringing us a treasure. Each of the stories and songs on The Seasonal Collection celebrate - either gently or joyously - how we are all part of nature's rhythms and hopefully help little ones (as well as remind myself!) to welcome the true gifts of both the sunny and stormy moments in life.
