The Making of Annie Crane's album "Jump with a Child's Heart" from Annie Crane on Vimeo. Or watch on YouTube.

Over the winter months of 2011, with co-producer and star roots musician Frank Hoier, I recorded a new album titled "Jump with a Child's Heart" due out for release on October 1st of this year. This video, shot on my crafty iPhone, documents the weeks spent in our dusty little corner of speaker making factory. It captures the wonderful friends/musicians who came in to play on the record and the title track, "Jump with a Child's Heart". Thanks for watching & enjoy!
