“Say it with Flowers? Nah. If you really want to get your expressive point across, say it with music.”  –  Robert Greenberg composer, pianist and music historian

Agreed, but not to worry, we added flowers too!

Story

What began as fulfilling a “self-made” promise to create music welcoming a new baby, celebrating a new generation of parents and offering a family legacy piece to share, became an expansive soothing lullaby and dream sequence soundtrack. Songwriting partners and family members Debye Delorean Kerbey and Alan Kerbey, invite you to the story.

Music

The original lullaby composition was crafted around a recurring themed piano and strings arrangement, accented by the Ancestral “AH’s” choir and delicate “star wink” chimes. An extended “soundscape” instrumental derivative of the lullaby along with pieces of the well-loved “Dream Weaver” melody, connect with the lullaby to provide a full 30 minute continuum to sleep.

Lyrics

The collection of original verses for each month of the year, were written to express parents and the family’s feelings of joy and eagerness to share the refuge of Earth & Sky, Our Hearts, Traditions and Home.

We imagined a life with you, now let’s create one together.

Song

A soothing classically themed melody with a lush instrumental interlude is the constant familiar, providing the soundtrack for monthly lyric variations and seasonal sound effects.

Listen, Learn and Make it your own.

Alan Kerbey

Director of Media

Music, Arrangement, Production, and Video Editing

Alan Kerbey has been making music pretty much all of his life. A multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, arranger, Alan became a “home recording studio” engineer in the very early days of that particular revolution. Alan is always writing and recording his own material as well as producing others, and recently retired from media ministry at a Mega church in Phoenix.
 
Alan and Debye met in 1986 under the beginning of writing commercial jingles, but quickly their efforts went to collaborating on songs for an album to be shopped to major labels. 35 years later, they are still writing together.
 
In 2010 after Alan had his first grandson and Debye was anticipating her first (both of whom were February Babies) the “My February Baby” lullaby was conceived by these songwriters and family members, Debye married Alan’s older brother in 1988. The musical concept of the lullaby was born – along with the growing family!
 
Alan is Director of Media for the Dream-a-Month team, putting all of his skills past and present to good work in what is more of semi-retirement. Alan lives in Phoenix, with his very talented musician wife Therese. He is an avid golfer, spends as much time with his children and their littles as possible and could be the greatest Beatles fan ever!
