Essence

 

Acclaimed singer-songwriter essence is proud to present her award winning first-ever children’s album, ‘A Dog Named Moo”.
 
This collection of heartfelt, witty and imaginative songs started out as a gift of love for her son Rhys, who has been enjoying these light-hearted tunes his mom’s been singing to him since he was born. essence offers clever and witty songs that promise to entertain as well as educate the little ones and won’t make parents want to jump out the window. These catchy ukulele, guitar, and banjo-laced tunes include: 'T REXXXX!', 'Everybody Has A Butt', 'Socks On My Ears' "Rocks n' Sand" and 'Comin' to Getcha.”
 
“I never set out to make a kid’s record,” essence explains. “It was the furthest thing from my mind but when I had my son Rhys – I needed to find creative ways to engage him in everyday events like taking baths, getting dressed, or wearing a seat belt. For awhile I was making up little ditties and then one day it dawned on me that these were real songs that other families would enjoy too.
 
The record was produced in a grassroots way, essence’s first album funded solely on the support of her fans on Kickstarter. essence proved that making a popular album does not require a huge outlay of her own money. Through Kickstarter she reached out to her community asking if they would help fund her project. With the support of her friends and fans she was able to raise twenty thousand dollars allowing this project to be realized. Most songs were co-written by Jeffrey Pease with illustrations by Alex Conn. The banjo, ukulele, guitars, upright bass and drums were played by instrumental extraordinaire and producer, Daniel Berkman. essence credits her management consultant Dick Wingate (Bruce Springsteen, Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello) and her ultimate inspiration, her son. In addition to the ‘A Dog Named Moo’ CD, she is currently creating ‘T REXXX!’ as a book, ‘Everybody Has a Butt’ as a smart phone app, and three animated videos (‘T REXXXX!’ in claymation, ‘Everybody Has a Butt’ and ‘Yum Yum!’)
 
Billboard Magazine describes essence as “a singer, who, like Madonna, isn’t afraid to take musical chances.” A sixth generation San Francisco native, her parents were quintessential flower children from Haight-Ashbury, hence her name spelled with a lowercase e. She traveled extensively, lived in Africa and Europe and went to 14 schools before fifth grade. Upon graduating from college, essence signed to a division of MCA Records. In 1998, she won The National Lilith Fair Talent Search (5,000 entries). essence was then signed to RCA records for three years and worked with producer Bill Bottrell (Michael Jackson, Sheryl Crow). With producer Garth May, she completed her critically acclaimed ‘Mariposa’ record. Subsequently she signed with Or Music (Los Lonely Boys, Matisyahu) out of Manhattan. essence produced ‘Feels Like The Future’ independently in 2009 which lead to winning the grand prize for the Great American Song Contest (15,000 entries), and second place in the International Song Writing Contest (2010). The title track was prominently featured on ‘Access Hollywood,’ and several songs played live and recorded on the anationally syndicated ‘Art of the Song’ (240 NPR affiliated stations).
 
essence has opened for Jason Mraz, Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Chrissie Hynde, Steve Miller, Linda Perry and Tom Petty. essence’s voice and style has been compared to Stevie Nicks, Dolly Parton, and Patty Griffin. Her key inspirations are Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson.

Monkey Bird Children's & Maternity Consignment Event

 

Monkey Bird Children's & Maternity Consignment Event (www.monkeybird.org) strives to bring you gently used clothing and gear for your little ones and new additions at a fraction of retail cost.  We help agencies raise funds with our fundraising program. Our consignors ears 60-70% of their sales. We are working with the One Warm Coat program in effort to keep clothing out of landfills and get them to people who can use them now.  The dream of One Warm Coat agency(www.onewarmcoat.org) : That One Warm Coat will become a part of the American lifestyle; that when a coat is no longer needed, people will think of us and donate it; that donors will be warmed by the knowledge that their coats will go directly to children, women and men in need.  Monkey Bird Children’s Consignment Sale Event is collecting clean, gently used coats and jackets as part of the One Warm Coat community service project.  Coats of all shapes sizes are welcome. One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults.  The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need.

Monkey Bird Children’s Consignment Sale Event has made donating a coat simple.  Just bring your clean, gently used coats and jackets to Sports Basement during the 3rd Annual Munchkin Masquerade from 3:00pm to 6:00pm on Sunday, October 28th.  Then Monkey Bird will take care of the rest.  All donated coats will be given to Love a Child Ministries for distribution to local people in need.

 “More people than ever need help these days.  I am proud of the thousands of coat drive organizers whose creativity and generosity of spirit are making a real difference in their own communities.” commented Sherri Wood, President and National Coordinator for One Warm Coat.

 One Warm Coat is national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives.  It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need.   More than one million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992.
