The development of this second children's EP ( released under Stephanie Coldwell-Anderson) is an extension of Stephanie Riann`s debut children's EP Dreams. It started with the inspirational idea to write children's songs inspired by the experiences of the many young children in her extended family, mixed together with some of her own childhood memories and experiences. She has written a collection of songs over the period of the last three years, five of which appear on this EP. This EP also includes 5 bonus sing-a-long instrumental tracks for parents and children to personalize the songs or just to try singing the songs on your own.
The music on this album has flavors of Canadian folk music, with elements and flavours of Jazz, Country, Classical, and Asian gaming music. In the end, this EP has developed into a final product that has been a labour of love which she hopes you'll enjoy.

“Stephanie is one of the hardest working music teachers I know. She is always prepared for her lessons, maintains excellent communications with her student’s parents, and is highly trained and professional. Stephanie has a wonderful way with her students, and she is more than willing to go the extra distance to support them as they work to hone their vocal and piano skills.”
Andrea Styles, Group piano teacher, worked with Stephanie from 2008-2013
“Up to this point I have only heard Stephanie’s singing on her (digital singles) recordings, so I found it to be quite the pleasure to listen to her live rendition of the Christmas Waltz (2013). She has a confident stage presence with a clear and powerful, yet when needed, gentle voice. It was so enjoyable to listen to her sing with such great feelings of warmth. You sensed the feeling in the song.”
