Meet Songstress Mama Monica Cravotta

March 31st, 2010

Monica Cravotta is mama to 3 year old Sadie and 18 month old Izzy, and co-owner of Hideout Studios with husband Mark and indie singer-songwriter Ben Kweller. In 2006 Monica got the idea to create a collection of children’s songs while pregnant with her first child. So with fellow pregnant mamas Libby Kirkpatrick and Sarah Sharp, these three very pregnant mamas (all eight months pregnant with due dates 2 weeks apart!) sang together at a Strings Attached concert. She invited them along with five other singer friends to join the project. Contributing Austin songstresses now include Monica, Libby, and Sarah along with Elizabeth McQueen (Asleep at the Wheel), Noelle Hampton, Elizabeth Suggs, Gretchen Janzow and Mary Londos.

The project has ebbed and flowed due to Monica’s many obligations, first and foremost being a mama. She had her second child in 2008. The project took on a whole new life in 2009 when singer and recording star Sara Hickman agreed to produce the collection. Together Monica and Sara have worked tirelessly to bring The Sweet Songs Album for Children to life.

A devoted breastfeeding and attachment parenting advocate, Monica has dedicated all of the proceeds from The Sweet Songs Album for Children to Mother’s Milk Bank at Austin.  Donations of $25 or more will receive a copy of the CD, due to release on May, 2010. There will also be a launch concert in Austin, TX on Mother’s Day, May 9, 2010.
