Sometimes it’s hard to find age appropriate songs that your kids enjoy listening to. It helps if it has a catchy tune that delivers a positive message. Raffi’s label, Troubadour Music, announces the release of I Am Kind by new artist, Lindsay Munroe.

The 16 songs on the album are filled with messages of joy and encouragement. Raffi’s voice adds to the charm of this all-ages inclusive album, which will be released on digital platforms on April 24th via Craft Recordings in the US. Today, fans may also pre-order the CD version of I Am Kind, to be released on Jun. 12.

This is the first Troubadour album featuring an artist other than Raffi in decades. Munroe, a longtime fan of Raffi’s music was thrilled when he said he was a fan of her “Sing Along with Lindsay” videos on YouTube. Over time, Raffi enjoyed hearing Lindsay’s original children’s songs, inspired by her own kids, and he suggested that she record an album.  She agreed and was thrilled when Raffi offered to produce it.

Munroe is a passionate advocate of diversity and inclusion. She is a self-taught musician and mother of three children with Autism. She offers both inspiration and practical tools for all children, including those who are neurodiverse.

“Kindness Counts” is this year’s theme for Autism Awareness Month, and at a time when warm-heartedness is needed more than ever, I Am Kind strikes just the right notes. “I am happy to contribute something to the world during these trying times,” says Munroe. “I hope that all families, especially those with neurodiverse kids, can feel inspired and uplifted by these songs.”

Starting on Sat., Apr. 25, Munroe will publish activity guides to go along with each song. You can also visit Raffi’s website for album news and the latest Raffi updates.
