Lori Henriques Album – Outside My Door

My sister Lori has a new album of original songs entitled “Outside My Door – Songs For Children Of all Ages.” I did the artwork for it, which some of you might recognize since I used the Paper City and added some color and a few extra details relating to her lyrics. The design layout by our friend Paul Johnson turned out so fun that it works as an addition to Paper City!

As for the music, of-course I think it’s brilliant, but you can also read this glowing review from Oregon Music News (They even gave me a nice review because of the artwork.) So check out Lori’s brand new site to listen for free, or buy a CD if you’d like. It’s also available for download here on iTunes. Nice one, Lori!

    Listening to her music right now! She's wonderful! Such a beautiful, upbeat voice! Totally going to buy the CD when I get the chance, would by it on itunes, but your art work doesn't come with that :o)

    Hi Joel,
    Outside My Door is coming to NM!
    I just purchased one for Adán! Lori's
    words and music are an inspiration.
    His latest garage band tune creation
    is inspired by watching little sticks float
    down our small irrigation ditches...
    Yes to spring time fun!

    I heard one of your sister's songs on Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child this weekend. We listen to that program every Saturday. Even though I don't know you or your sister it was great to hear and recognize her name. They played "Enough is Enough". Looking forward to buying your sister's cd. We already have the piano one and really enjoy it. Love the artwork and all the projects you share on your site. I'm hoping to try my first...the bird mobile....looks simple enough for a messy wannabe crafter.
