Melissa Errico 'Lullabies & Wildflowers'
Select Styles for Availability
With Lullabies & Wildflowers, her latest album, Ms. Errico acknowledges and embraces that new audience - women who, like her, have undergone the exhilaration and joys of becoming mothers - and assumes the role, for the first time, of playing herself, fully, fearlessly, and irresistibly. With the birth of her daughter Victoria in 2006, Ms. Errico found that her dedication to the theater hadn't prepared her for the drama of bringing a new life into the world. Universal though it is, she understood that this journey is private even as it invites opening to others. This enlightenment animates Lullabies & Wildflowers. Its songs span a wide range: playful and winsome on "Someone to Watch over Me," intimate and loving on "Mockingbird," soothing yet stirring on "Hushabye," upbeat and optimistic on "Wildflowers," sensual and sexy on "Wind Says Shhh." The feelings borne through Ms. Errico's distinctive vocals and Rob Mathes' spare but artful arrangements are as varied as those of women who have made the passage into motherhood.
