An update on how things are going...

Hello! :-)

Thank you for visiting!

Since our launch in July 2014, "Lullaby Baby" has been growing steadily.

The Christmas music collections have done especially well, and it has been absolutely wonderful receiving so many heartfelt messages of goodwill from people who have appreciated them. The most popular Christmas video remains the "Peaceful Piano" compilation, and this has now had over 5 million views and 13,000 likes!

This year, our new "Christmas Fireplace" and "Christmas Music Instrumental" videos also did very well. It was a great pleasure compiling the playlists for these, and I'm really pleased with how they turned out, with over 50 beautiful tracks in each video.

If you missed them this Christmas, do take a look when next Christmas is here!

The "Christmas Acoustic Guitar" album also did very well, and is one of my personal favourites from all the videos on the channel.

Now that Christmas is behind us, it's time to focus on lullabies again! :-) Our most successful lullaby video is currently "Lullabies for Babies to go to Sleep". It's really been amazing seeing how popular it has become and it has also attracted many new visitors to the channel.

A nice thing about these videos is that they provide a cosy and safe space, that is beneficial to people of all ages. I've lost count of the number of comments we've received that include words to the effect of "I love this and I'm not a baby!" So, if you enjoy these videos for yourself, you're not alone! ;-)

There are many lullaby videos on the channel, so I won't list them all here! (Please have a look under the "VIDEOS" tab for more information.) But one video I would like to bring your attention to is our latest "Lullaby Piano Medley". It was composed and performed specifically for this channel - so you won't hear it anywhere else - and I'm absolutely delighted with how it has turned out.

If you haven't heard it already, please take a look! I really feel that it's a beautiful gift to the world. It's composed and performed by the same musician who created the "Relaxing Piano" medley, which you might have seen already, and I'm very happy that we will be able to continue working together.

The final things to mention are... Yay! You've guessed it! The website is now online!!! I had a website at the beginning, but I couldn't work out how to use it. Now, after putting it off for almost a year, I've managed to get a "blogger" website together, which feels comfortable and manageable. Phew!

Before I go, I'd like to recommend two more videos that I think are really great, but, for whatever reason, they haven't really taken off the ground.... Firstly, a "Lullaby Medley" made specifically for this channel. This time by a friend of mine who I have worked with on many projects. He now works full-time as a music teacher in a school, so unfortunately he doesn't have the time to work on any more videos for the moment! It would be wonderful if more people could find it.

And lastly, please check out this "Cosmic Peace" video. It's really very relaxing, and includes 2 hours of music before it repeats. It has a very high like ratio (177 to 9), so those who find it do appreciate it! It's just a question of helping people find it.

If you've read this far, thank you for your interest! You seem to like what we do enough to be reading this, so with this in mind, I have a couple of small favours to ask... Basically, please can you do one or all of the following:

1. When you like a video,  please click "Like", as this helps the video gain in popularity and thus get more exposure on YouTube. (N.B. Just click once. If you click a second time the like disappears!)
2. If you like one of our videos, please leave a comment under the video - even if it's something tiny! ***This is especially useful for new videos. Any help is much appreciated!*** Again, this helps with algorithms and discovery.
3. If you haven't done so already, please SUBSCRIBE! :-)

Thank you if you can help us in this way!

And that's it. All that remains to say, is THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!!! As always, it's a pleasure making these videos for you, your babies and your loved ones. I really feel very blessed to be able to work in this way.

Best wishes,

Lullaby Baby
