Dear Dreamers:  

We are the Holland sisters, Kylie (14), Devon (13) and Piper (11). We believe kids can make a difference in the world and age doesn’t limit a person’s ability to have ideas, make plans, take action and help others.

As kids born in the Silicon Valley, we are entrepreneurs and activists ☺, and giving back to the world is definitely something our family believes in. We started the Earth Saver’s Club for Kids to help kids save the earth when we were 11, 10 and 8, and we just founded a new record label called Painted Wolf Records.  The label's mission is to help young musicians like us use their talents to raise awareness and help support worthy causes around the world.

Our first release, Invitation to Dream, is a cool collection of bedtime ballads and lullabies sung by Devon to benefit US Green Building Council’s Project Haiti.  She had a remarkable team supporting her including top vocal coach and producer Peter Maleitzke; Grammy® Award winning recording and mixing engineer, Leslie Ann Jones and her team at Skywalker Sound; concert-level musicians; and the iconic Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA. Devon was also fortunate to have award-winning, Elisa Kleven, illustrator and author of over thirty children’s picture books create the original cover art for Invitation to Dream.

We are donating 100% of the profits from the sales of her CD to hopefully raise over $250,000 for the US Green Building Council’s Project Haiti. Watch our video to learn more about it.

Recognized by the Clinton Global Initiative as a Commitment Maker, Project Haiti will be the FIRST-EVER LEED-certified orphanage and children’s center in the world!  It will provide a new home for the children and babies left homeless by the terrible 2010 earthquake in Haiti.  It will also provide a blueprint for building other healthy, happy, sustainable, affordable orphanages throughout the third world.  The money we raise will make sure USGBC can break ground on Project Haiti in 2014. PLEASE help us give these babies and kids in Haiti a new place to live, to play, and to dream listening to Devon’s lullabies.  

A minimum contribution of $20 (more is better ☺) will give you a copy of Invitation to Dream to enjoy or share with a little kid or baby in your life. Please buy the CD now at www.invitationtodream.com. Together we can show these children we LOVE them!

Thank you sooooo much!

Track Name: Circle 'Round The Moon
Circle ‘round the moon, invites me to stay out in the wintertime.
Crystals in the air, suggest that I prepare for the cold night air.
High above the trees, you will make me see, that with such a sight,
Sheer delight, is hidden everywhere for those who care to see.
Caverns down below, invite me to come down on the slipp’ry rock.
Icicles of stone, and horrid mountain gnomes, hidden in the dark.
In the ground below, you will make me know that with such a sight,
Sheer delight, is hidden everywhere for those who care to see.
What great mind behind it, dreamed it and designed it?
Pale moons, cavern tombs, starry, starry sky.
Flurry blizzard snow, watch it as it blows in the blue grey skies.
Sandy summer beach, hear the seagulls screech in the hot dry air.
What great mind behind it dreamed it and designed it?
Snowy night, summer flight, painful beauty in my sight,
Making me long for you.
Track Name: Fairest Lady
Fairest little lady,
It’s time to close your eyes
Go to sleep,
dream sweet dreams,
Oh, my fairest lady.
Golden slumbers kiss your eyes. Smiles awake you
when you arise.
Fairest little lady,
It’s time to close your eyes
Go to sleep,
dream sweet dreams,
Oh, my fairest baby.
London Bridge
will fly away, fly away, fly away.
London Bridge
will fly away, fly away, fly away.
Golden slumbers kiss your eyes. Smiles awake you
when you arise.
Fairest Lady, Fairest Lady.
Track Name: Moonshine Lullaby
Behind the hill there’s a busy little still Where your Pappy’s workin’
in the moonlight.
Your lovin’ pa isn’t quite within the law, So he’s hidin’ there behind the hill.
Bye bye baby, stop your yawnin’.
Don’t cry baby, day will be dawning.
And when it does from the mountain
where he was,
He’ll be coming with a jug of moonshine.
So count your sheep,
Mama’s singing you to sleep,
With a Moonshine Lullaby
Dream of Pappy, very happy
With his jug of mountain rye.
So count your sheep,
Mama’s singing you to sleep,
With a Moonshine Lullaby
Track Name: Come to My Garden (from “The Secret Garden”)
Clusters of crocus, purple and gold Blankets of pansies, up from the cold. Lilies and iris,
Safe from the chill.
Safe in my garden,
Snowdrops so still.
Come to my garden,
nestled in the hill.
There I’ll keep you
safe beside me.
Come to my garden.
Rest there in my arms.
There I’ll see you safely grown And on your way.
Stay there in my garden,
Where love grows free and wild. Come to my garden,
Come, sweet child.
Clusters of crocus,
Safe from the chill,
Blankets of pansies,
Snowdrops so still.
Track Name: Castle on a Cloud
There is a castle on a cloud, I like to go there in my sleep,
Not in my castle on a cloud.
Aren't any floors for me to sweep,
There is a room that’s full of toys,
There are a hundred boys and girls, Nobody shouts or talks too loud,
Not in my castle on a cloud.
There is a lady all in white,
Holds me and sings a lullaby,
She’s nice to see and she’s soft to touch, She says, “Cosette, I love you very much.” I know a place where no one’s lost,
I know a place where no one cries, Crying at all is not allowed,
Not in my castle on a cloud.

Track Name: Hush, Little Baby 
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird won’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.
And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass.
And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat,
And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull.
And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Papa’s gonna buy you a horse and cart.
And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
Track Name: Goodnight
Now it’s time to say goodnight.
Good night, Sleep tight.
Now the sun turns out his light.
Good night, Sleep tight.
Dream sweet dreams for me;
Dream sweet dreams for you.
Close your eyes and I’ll close mine,
Good night, Sleep tight.
Now the moon begins to shine,
Good night, Sleep tight.
Dream sweet dreams for me;
Dream sweet dreams for you.
Close your eyes, say Goodnight.
Track Name: A la Nanita Nana
A la nanita, nana nanita, ella nanita, ella
Mi niña tiene sueño,
bendito sea, bendito sea.
A la nanita, nana nanita, ella nanita, ella
Mi niña tiene sueño,
bendito sea, bendito sea.
Fuentecita que corre claray sonora.
Resenor que en la selva, cantando llora.
Calla mientras la cuna, se belansea.
A la nanita nana, nanita ella.
A la nanita, nana nanita, ella nanita, ella
Mi niña tiene sueño,
bendito sea, bendito sea.
Track Name: Lullaby and Goodnight
Lullaby and goodnight, my heart’s joy and delight
I’ll protect you from harm, you will wake in my arms.
Go to sleep now and rest, may your slumber be blessed.
Go to sleep now and rest, you will wake on my chest. Lullaby and Goodnight, in the sky stars are bright.
May the moon’s silv’ry beams, bring you sweet dreams.
Sleepyhead, close your eyes,
I am here right beside you.
‘Til the sky’s bright with dawn
and you wake with a yawn.
Go to sleep, little one,
think of puppies and kittens.
Go to sleep, little one,
think of butterflies in spring.
Go to sleep now and rest,
think of sunny bright mornings.
Soft and warm is your bed,
close your eyes, rest your head.
Lullaby, don’t you fear.
The angels are near and I’ll be right here.
You are joy and delight. Lullaby and good night.
Track Name: All Through the Night  
Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee, All through the night.
Guardian angels God will send thee, All through the night.
Soft the drowsy hours creeping,
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping.
I, my loving vigil keeping, All through the night.
While the moon her watch is keeping, All through the night.
While the weary world is sleeping, All through the night.
O’er thy spirit gently stealing,
Visions of delight revealing,
Breathes a pure and holy feeling, All through the night.
Happy dreams are yours to keep, All through the night.
Gentle wonders fill your slumber, All through the night.
Fairies, mermaids dance around you, Spinning, twirling colors ‘round you. Baby dragons lay beside you,
All through the night,
All through the night.
