This album began as a way to introduce the wonder of Shakespeare to our kids, though it quickly took on a life of its own. Music flows throughout Shakespeare’s work, and we’ve brought together a whole cavalcade of amazing musicians. From Rob Kendt and Madison Scheckel, to David Tobocman and Raymond Bokhour.

Visit our website to order the physical CD or download the mp3s on Itunes/Amazon.

YOU ARE ALSO INVITED TO OUR ALBUM RELEASE PARTY!

Songs for all the seven ages inspired by the bard!

Songs for all the seven ages inspired by the bard!

134 West presents O BABY MINE: Sing a Song of Shakespeare, a new indie album of children’s songs and lullabies inspired by, and taken from, Shakespeare’s plays.  Producer/Director Susan Lambert conceived this new concept album when she adapted the lyrics of Twelfth Night’s O Mistress Mine to sing to her infant son while rocking him to sleep.

Alas, poor Yorick...  Sing a Song of Shakespeare with O Baby Mine.

Executive Produced by Lambert. Produced by music and theater man-about-town Rob Kendt and featuring songs by Kendt, Madison Scheckel, Raymond Bokhour, Cinco Paul and many others! It’s a wonderful collection for smart and indie music loving families as well as theatre lovers and their kids. And, of course, for those who love the Bard, O BABY MINE is a wonderful way to share Shakespeare’s stories and words with all the seven ages.  And the great thing is, this music isn’t just for kids or for Shakespeare fans. When 134 West produces family entertainment, it means everyone enjoys the fun.
