“A Mother’s Song” is an offering by Lori Malvey telling the tale of a mother talking to her son as he prepares to start school for the first time. She contemplates the ups and downs of being a child and a mother’s role in this growth process.
Ms. Malvey’s music style is a very unique blend of country and folk music. And in the nature of these styles, it tells the story including the emotions and feelings attributed to the details of the song whether it be joy of childhood or pains of disappointment. And in that it includes the mother’s viewpoint as one who cares for the total well being of her child.
This song was recorded as a single available on iTunes with all profits going to support St. Joseph School.
