Produced, mixed and mastered by TJ Lipple Photography & artwork by Miriam Cutelis Recorded at Inner Ear Studios, Arlington, VA * Gravity Vacation (the album) was nominated for a Wammie for Best Children's Music Recording of 2012 by the Washington Area Music Association! * Sheep Don't Wear Shoes was awarded an Honorable Mention in the 29th Annual Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Competition 'Gravity Vacation" is the debut kindie (kids independent) record for DC-based singer/songwriter and music teacher Marsha Goodman-Wood. Marsha is known for getting kids singing and dancing at her shows, setting little toes to tapping with original melodies that mix generous doses of science and positive social messages into songs that are just plain fun. Her quirky, smart compositions take on topics from astronomy (answering the age-old question 'Why Can't You Dance on Jupiter?') to nonconformity ('Sheep Don't Wear Shoes') to biology ('The Penguin Song'). A former cognitive neuroscientist, Marsha includes fun facts and lessons in her songs! With tunes and stories that please children and grownups alike, Marsha takes inspiration for her lyrics straight from the creative kids she's raising and teaching. A mother of three, she brings to her performances a parent's eye for connecting with audiences, along with a music teacher's sensibility for what works to move kids of all ages.
