Well-known for her roles
of Glinda and Elphaba in the hit West End production of Wicked, Louise Dearman
, a mum-of-one, channelled her creative energies during lockdown into creating the album.
Louise, 41, from Brighton, believed she identified a gap in the market, after giving birth to her own daughter, Willow, now three:
"I had our little girl three years ago and I vividly remember those early days, weeks and months, being up in the night at all hours feeding and comforting her.
"I remember back then wishing I had something soothing to listen to other than just the meditation albums I had found.
"My hopes for this album are that people will come away saying that Bedtime Baby has become a part of their bedtime or quiet time routine and that it really does transport them into a peaceful state of mind in what can sometimes be a time of great stress."
Complemented by sounds of ocean waves and the pitter patter of rainfall, Bedtime Baby is a modern take on some of the classic children"s songs we all know and love.
Louise is widely known through her many performances in London's West End, UK National Tours and the UK and international concert arena.
She is the only actress worldwide to have ever played both Elphaba and Galinda in the hit musical Wicked and has played leading roles in many other musicals including Guys and Dolls, Evita and Kiss Me Kate, to name a few.
Bedtime Baby, which will be released on December 5th, is available for purchase and download from all major digital platforms, including: ITunes, Spotify and Amazon.
