“It really feels as though Frances England has captured the world in one musical place. It laid back with a sense of urgency. It is funk horns chilled out to an indie groove. It is both the beginning and end of an adventure. It is the noise of a foreign city, and it is the grass of your backyard. And it all works together.” ~Tenor Dad
“Rocking out with the gentlest touch, Frances turns the world she sees through her kaleidoscope eyes, into vibrant, lyrical images that that we get to experience through our ears. She’s kinda magical that way.” ~Mindy Thomas, Program Director-SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live

Some recent press quotes about Explorer of the World....

“ Full of found sounds and dynamic percussion and rhythmic choices, the album celebrates exploration and travel with verve and love.” ~Zooglobble

“One of the most consistently brilliant and beautiful albums of 2016. This album is the soundtrack to the adventures you want to take.” ~ Full Van Fun

“.... an invitation, perhaps even a dare, to connect in a real way to the real world.” ~School News Roll Call

“Though England’s tunes are marketed as children’s music, in a perfect world, “City Don’t Sleep” and “Street Life” would be riding up the pop charts. I can’t stop listening.”  ~ Kenosha News

“If you allow it, this fine collection of electro-acoustic travel songs can be a new soundtrack for your family’s next expedition — whether that’s to dad’s childhood home, the neighborhood park with that big old oak tree, sitting out on your front step to watch the activity on your own street, or to a tempting far away land.” ~ Out with the Kids

“The theme of exploration informs every aspect of this album. “ ~Washington Paren

“........what’s smokin’ right now on the kids’ scene….” ~A Child Grows in Brooklyn
