Shine and The Moonbeams

Family music comes in a broad range of styles – folk, rock, punk and even polka. But, compared with its popularity among adults, there have been very few R&B and soul music albums for kids. Enter Shine and the Moonbeams.

The first thing most listeners notice on the band's self-titled debut album is Shawana Kemp's voice. When she sings "Stop!" on the song "Bully Bully," most listeners do just that. "Bully Bully," in particular, grew out of work Kemp did as a teaching artist specializing in conflict resolution in New York City public schools, and many of the songs co-written by Kemp and guitarist Jonathan Heagle address issues like the power of imagination and being comfortable in your own skin. Sometimes message songs deliver the message at the expense of the music, but Kemp's warm voice and the band's groove keep these songs very listenable. They are soulful and a refreshing relevant addition to the Family music arena. ~ NPR
