Upon first listen, “Strawberry Wind” sounds like a wonderful new Jessie Baylin record. Her trademark emotive retro-pop vocals shine through, her inherent moody musicality is present and her ’70s Laurel Canyon/Brill Building writing prowess is front-and-center. On her 4th release, one finds that there’s more of a playful, carefree and delightfully childlike sensibility on the tracks that overflow with a sense of joy, wonder, and excitement for life that speaks well to children. It’s an honest album for kids and parents – Baylin doesn’t hold back on telling it like it is. Weaving through lyrical themes of dream life, supermoons, and summertime vibes there are also some gentle doses of reality on Strawberry Wind. “I don’t want to lie to my kids. Life is hard sometimes and you need to find a way to deal with it… there will always be things in life you can’t control.×Warning! This artist performs music that is not all targeted to children.
