Winter’s iQ Kids Radio Featured Artist: Frances England
Frances grew up in the South, where her love of fireflies and good bar-b-que began. She and her husband have lived in San Francisco for the last 10 years. Her musical inspiration comes from her two sons, working with families at a cooperative preschool, and a range of artists , including Woodie Guthrie, and The Carter Family, Cat Power and Yo La Tengo. In her spare time, Frances likes to cut up paper and make crazy collages with her kids, walk in the woods, ride bikes, and eat potato chips.
Lyrics excerpt to our signature song, “To Be”
If you like to stop and smell the flowers, if you like to climb the trees
If you look in a box of little critters, down on your knees
Then you know what it means to be, you know what it means to just be
Child, teach me, to be
Child, teach me
