Rainbow of Feelings
Gentle, often clever lyrics and soft music mark each piece, and Strausman's lyrical voice has a soothing quiet. Song themes range from insects to frogs and trucks to weather. Children will dance spontaneously to the solid rhythms or follow such suggested activities as stretching to greet the day ("I'm Up") or guessing what's in the bag ("Feel It, Shake It"). Infectious and entertaining, this is a pleasing collection for school, public-library, and home... 
- Lolly Gepson,  Booklist (American Library Assosication)

Strausman's soothing vocals and assured guitar playing shine through on this album of original, playful tues aimed at very young children....Whether they're playing along or simply listening, youngsters will be throughly entertained by Strausman's winning approach to positive family fun.

Paul Strausman

From lively songs about animals to warm reassuring songs about childhood's everyday concerns, Paul's songs are about the things kids really think about. 

With influences from folk to classical, to jazz and rock and roll, his gentle style and warm positive outlook have inspired fans of all ages. Most importantly, a respect for children - especially the pre-school through the early elementary aged set - shines through.

Paul's four recordings have won numerous major awards and received glowing national reviews. But perhaps the most important "reviews" of all come from the children themselves, who have written to us here at A Gentle Wind to tell us how much they love Paul's music.
