What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Raised By Music


Over the years, I’ve had the good fortune to be able to share with you some of my faves. Many truly magnificent, impressive, mind-blowing musical talents have graced these pages, but today’s music is a little more of an every-day sort. A little humbler, a little more accessible. This is the utterly charming YouTube channel Songs With My Daughter.

What started as a dad playing piano to soothe the very new baby strapped to his chest has turned into a full-on family affair. In their latest video, this little family – father, mother, and pre-tween sister – all get in on the act, making beautiful music to the great delight of that lucky baby.

I used to imagine what a wondrous childhood I would have had if I’d grown up in a more musically-inclined family (I watched a lot of Partridge Family growing up). Don’t get me wrong. My family is fantastic, and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. But gigging on the weekend in velvet jumpsuits and traveling in a big, silly painted bus looked to me like just the thing…

You can see more of the sweet, simple videos on their YouTube channel.

  2. That was really very cute. It transported me back to when my now 12 year old was a newborn and would only fall asleep with ease if I sang to him. I have never been much good with lullabies and kiddie songs so I used to run through my repertoire of traditional ballads and folk songs, country music tunes, and the odd bit of big band. Some nights the little bugger used to exhaust my play list and I would have to restart. Of course, my singing voice was never anywhere near as polished as this family possess. That might have been part of the issue.

  3. That is super cute. My godson had a phase where he’d only be quiet in the car if we sang. It’s amazing how many nursery rhymes me and his mother had forgotten. He obviously didn’t care if we were in tune either!
