Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: Bandcamp: In 2010, Elizabeth Mitchell & You Are My Flower released "Sunny Day", their second Smithsonian Folkways album of "handmade" music of the finest kind, for folks of all ages. A true family affair, Sunny Day features performances with Mitchell's husband and musical partner, Daniel Littleton, their nine-year-old daughter Storey, and Storey's cousins and friends. "Storey spent a lot of time as a toddler with her Lola (the word for 'grandmother' in the Philippines). She always felt loved and cherished by her Lola, always patiently encouraged to bloom and grow. They spent many hours in conversation, as Storey was a very verbal little girl. I know these moments they shared were special, as Storey often revealed parts of herself that she kept hidden, even from me. This song was born during one of their many afternoons together. Storey plays a harmonica sunrise!"
