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. She had no intention of anyone outside her own circle of family and friends hearing it, but word got out, and within a couple of years Frances went from playing at nursery schools and libraries, to 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. "Each song is a little treasure of artistry, creativity and heart." - Los Angeles Times / / "Phenomenal" USA Today / / “One of the most consistently brilliant and beautiful albums of 2016. This album is the soundtrack to the adventures you want to take.” ~ Full Van Fun
