May 7, 2017:  It's been a long time coming but it's finally here.  Lily Cat's 2nd album, titled Thank You, Pretty Cow: Ancestral English Poetry and Music. I loved making this album and will likely follow up with a Volume II in the not too distant future.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Thank You, Pretty Cow. 


More Good News!

Lily Cat Music for Kids' first full full length album (15 tracks) is out!  Titled Lily Cat's Very Good Day, this album is the culmination of a year's worth of work. All newly mastered tracks by the great Randall Merryman of Nashville.

Lily Cat Music and Poetry for Kids isn't about teaching reading, writing and arithmetic.  Lily Cat is about universal and eternal values and right conduct: being kind to all living creatures, doing the right thing, sharing, and doing your best.  It's also about beauty: the beauty and expressiveness of our English language as well as the sweet pleasure of lilting melodies and consonant harmonies.  



I'm also the recording artist, singer/songwriter, poet, blogger and photographer Dogwood Daughter. Find me at 


And, if anything at Lily Cat Music for Kids or Dogwood Daughter makes your heart sing, please tell other folks about my little websites.  I'm an indie artist and have no advertising budget, only word of mouth from kind folks like you.  Thank you!
