In A Heartbeat CD by Laura Doherty

In a Heartbeat by Laura Doherty 


Released FEBRUARY 2014




"Laura's warm, sunny, friendly voice is reminiscent of Dar Williams, Shawn Colvin and The Waifs." -- Parents' Choice Gold Award review of Laura Doherty's Kids in the City

"One of the best artists making music for the preschoolers in your life." -- Stefan Shepherd, Zooglobble.com

CHICAGO -- With Parents' Choice Gold and Silver Awards for her first two children's albums in her hip pocket, independent musician Laura Doherty releases her third kids' CD, In a Heartbeat, today!  Featured guest artist is Glenn Kotche of Wilco. (Laura Doherty Music, $15.00, for ages 0 - 6, run time 34 minutes.)

A collection of cozy, upbeat songs to warm the hearts of all ages, In a Heartbeat is perfect for Valentine's Day.  The album finds its genesis in the love Laura Doherty feels for both the Westchester County, NY region where she grew up and her "adopted hometown" of Chicago, where she's resided for most of the past two decades.  Half the songs on In a Heartbeat were written in New York and half in Chicago, with Laura taking inspiration from the lush, rolling hills of the Hudson Valley as well as Chicago's vibrant, urban energy.

Known for her warm, engaging style, Laura Doherty has a remarkable ear for a catchy melody, a passion for creating sweet, folk-inspired songs, and a one-of-a-kind ability to connect with children that earned her the moniker "Chicago's pop sweetheart for kids" from AAA Living MagazineTime Out NY Kids declared Laura's 2009 Parents' Choice Gold and Nappa Gold Award-winning Kids in the City to be one of that year's "Top 10 Kids' Albums."  Time Out Chicago gave 4 stars to her 2011 Parents' Choice Silver Award-winning Shining Like a Star and rated Laura as one of Chicago's Top 4 Children's Artists (with Justin Roberts, Ella Jenkins, and Ralph Covert).

 My Thoughts

I love sharing new and not-so-new artist with my readers, especially for the whole family.  Music is like the air we breathe - a necessity! Plus, I think our children are trying grow up too quickly. I want them to have fun and enjoy being a kid. Having mom and dad sing songs together can create wonderful memories and great bonding times together.

Laura Doherty is another wonderful children's recording artist that has poured her heart into every song. You may be familiar with her previous recordings: Shining Like A Star and Kids in the City.  In a Heartbeat was released just before Valentine's Day 2014 and features her acoustic folk-pop talent along with some jazz-blues mix. In A Heartbeat has thirteen fun songs that touch on the topics of growing up, shyness, love and more. (34 minutes) She is joined by several big talented Chicago musicians: Cat Tager, Rob Newhouse, Andrew Wilkins and Glenn Kotche. She has performed hundreds of concerts at festivals and venues. She is an award winning producer, too.
