“Hearing Trevor Hall sing is truly a magical experience. His songs are beautiful and emotional, and his lyrics are full of positive words that evoke strong feelings in all of those who have the opportunity to hear it. The very first time I heard him sing, I felt his music aligned with the empowering messages Slumberkins is trying to help bring to the world,” said Kelly Oriard, Co-Founder of Slumberkins and Chief Therapeutic Officer. “In ‘Take a Deep Breath,’ the song he wrote for the new album, his soulful lyrics guide and teach children how to calm down and feel okay once a stressful moment has occurred. I am confident parents and caregivers will find themselves listening to the song with their children again and again because of the positive way it makes them feel.”

Each song on the album is inspired by a Slumberkins creature and their story book to promote an aspect of emotional wellness, including self-confidence, individuality, self-worth, love, gratitude and authenticity and brings each Slumberkins character to life. “Take a Deep Breath,” written and sung by Hall, was inspired by Slumberkins’ Alpaca and supports children as they learn to articulate their feelings, manage their anxiety and share their worries with others.

"Making this song helped me tap into my inner child and what meaningful lessons I would want to teach my own son,” said Trevor Hall. “Working with Slumberkins has been a great experience, I've enjoyed putting myself in a different creative space."
