Jackabella has a desire to influence the 'whole child' from an early age. Her songs are a fun and witty way of inspiring children in their emotional development, in encouraging wonder, hope, imagination, creativity, exercise and understanding choices. 'Looking In, Looking Out' covers two themes. The Heart of the child, from where all responses come, and Nature with all it's beauty and wonder. This album will be sure to engage the imagination of children of all ages. Instruments used throughout the album consist of a guitar, keyboard, xylophone, bass and an occasional drum. Jackabella is also big on sound effects which helps the child visualise the story, so look out for some thunder claps, animals, and the general sound of fun. Jackabella is a born and bred Aussie which is abundantly apparent in her songs.
