J. Aaron Brown dreamed of creating music that parents could share with their little ones. Writing and recording songs that would provide sweet dreams and hopes of bright tomorrows, creating music and melodies that would stand the test of time and would be passed on to future generations. In pursuit of that dream, Brown and his partner, David R. Lehman, recorded A Child's Gift of Lullabyes, a collection of original lullabies with lush orchestral arrangements. Next, they staked everything on releasing and distributing it themselves. Beginning with a single specialty store in Nashville, Tennessee, and even giving away cassettes and CDs to thousands of new mothers, they relied on "word of mommy" to spread their musical message. Their marketing strategy worked beyond their wildest dreams. A Child's Gift of Lullabyes quickly earned acclaim, winning a Grammy® Award nomination and designation as a Notable Children's Recording from the American Library Association. Families everywhere have made this music a cherished part of nap time, playtime and bedtime. Brown and Lehman have produced five more collections of love songs and lullabies, and A Child’s Gift of Lullabyes recordings are available in fine gift shops, toy and department stores, mail-order catalogs and web sites. Today, J. Aaron Brown's dream has become a global reality.
