Texts and Tunes: Charity and the JAMband


Have you ever had one of those days that you just wished would end? Pop a Charity and the JAMband CD ($15) in and save the day by rocking your socks off with the kids.

Inspired by the vocals of Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, and Rickie Lee Jones, Charity writes all her music with movement in mind. And, as the mother of two sons, she gets kids shaking with songs that combines a mix of rock 'n' roll, bluegrass, funk, folk, blues, and jazz.

"Super Hero" inspires kids to fly around with imaginary capes, "Tree House" guides them through building one and "We Like the Funk" helps them get down on the dance floor. And because the tracks are absent of the sickeningly sweet vocal that's all too common in children's music, these jams are parent addicting and kid approved.
