Need a Solution for Sleepless Nights? Try Lullabies.
Hunter Perrin is a successful musician who has toured with the likes of John Fogerty, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and many others. Perrin is a highly skilled and sought-after guitarist who has performed at the Grammys, Royal Albert Hall, the Glastonbury Festival and many other prestigious events. He is now a music teacher at the Episcopal School of Los Angeles.
He has not let the Coronavirus pandemic keep him from performing his beloved music, teaching online and turning to Instagram to continue sharing his music with the world in the form of soothing lullabies.
According to Health.com, insomnia is at an all-time high because of anxiety related to the Coronavirus. Perrin has been been recording beautiful Lullabies and posting them to YouTube. There is little doubt the effects of the Coronavirus have had on restful nights. Many people turn to soothing music such as lullabies to induce restful evenings.
Touring musicians like Perrin are familiar with disrupted sleep. Logging lots of miles, late nights and a different bed in a different city can hinder the sleep patterns of even the soundest sleepers.
When Perrin’s two daughters (aged 10 months and 3 and a half years) go to bed, Perrin goes to the attic and sets up a camera to record a variety of lullabies including: “La Vie en Rose,” “C’est Si Bon,” “In My Life,” “The theme from The Last Waltz,” and many others.
The music was meant to help put his daughters to sleep but turned out to be cathartic for him. His online performance of “C’est Si Bon” caught the attention of the composer’s great grandson. Henri Betti composed the tune in 1947, and when his grandson heart Perrin’s version, he had to reach out.
