like a flower to the sun



“Let’s take a walk around the world/ there’s so much to see.” From the start of this beautiful new CD, veteran children’s singer Jack Grunsky invites listeners into a mellow, spirit-lifting musical celebration of life, from the rhythms of the earth and the joy of growing things to summer daydreams and the blowing wind.

“This flower is worth picking: there’s a world of music here for ears of all ages”                             - Eric Thom - Today’s Parent   2004

“Jack Grunsky’s 20 years of experience in creating, performing and recording music for young children show once again on his latest CD. There is nothing haphazard or careless about Like A Flower To The Sun; instead it is a carefully crafted journey, both physical and spiritual, that takes kids into their own imaginations, their own bodies, and around the world through rhythm, sound and melody.”         - Deanne Fisher - City Parent  2003

“Mellow-voiced singer-songwriter Jack Grunsky engages listeners in a Raffi-like affirmation of the natural world and simple pleasures, with a few sly messages about electronic media mania and how people “work all day just to make a little pay.” From the first track (“Let’s take a walk around the world / There’s so much to see”) to “So Long,” the soft jazz farewell, the collection is filled with melodic and lyric sophistication, and heart.”    - Los Angeles Times, Aug. 2004
