"Reviews ‘Little Child Big World’"

“Sue and Dwight Little Child Big World CD Release at The Cameron House. This was the best CD Release I have attended. The intimate setting of the back room, Sue and Dwight’s great music backed up by some of Toronto’s top musicians and singers, throw in some snacks and a “gift” from Africa, and you end up with a very special evening.

The album, Little Child Big World, chronicles some of the experiences and emotions Sue and Dwight had while in Africa a couple of years ago. The impact of the songs was enhanced, as they recently returned from another trip to Africa.

Not all the songs are related to Africa. For example, Prairie Girl takes us back to their prairie roots and their first album while providing a lyrical bridge to their life in Toronto and Africa.

Their lyrics always tell a story and frequently pull at your emotions, asking us to celebrate all we have, to consider the perspective of those who are without, to not let our fears cause us to miss out on what’s important in life, and to consider what we can do to improve our world and the planet we live on.

I have several favourite songs on this album. The one that strikes me the hardest is “See The Little Baby”. The upbeat gospel tune gets you smiling and clapping. You want to get up and say halleluiah and sway to the rhythm and all things good. Then you listen to the lyrics. Suffice to say there isn’t much happiness to be found there. The contrast is stunning, and therefore, all the more thought provoking.”…Bruce Hanson, smalltowntoronto.com

"The album’s undeniable strength comes from that spiritual place all artists try to find - writing songs of passion, conviction and dedication fully knowing their words have impact and can change the world. They bring light to a dark world."...Brian Gladstone, Musician and Founder of Winterfolk and Artists For A Better World, Toronto

"The songs hit me hard in the heart - thank you for delivering some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard."...Bobbi B., Saskatoon

“Little Child Big World reflects Sue and Dwight Peters’ travels in Ethiopia, Uganda and Malawi in 2007. Kevin Quain, who also plays bass, piano and accordion on the disc produces and achieves a nice clean sound which showcases the duo’s pleasant harmonies. The songs have perhaps a little too much of that relentlessly optimistic “lets-save-the-world” vibe for this critic’s taste but the playing is clean and professional and, overall, it’s not a bad effort”…Barry Hammond, Penguin Eggs

"Just thought I'd let you know, I am sent many albums each week, most have only one or two really good songs on them. Yours, however, is one of the best all around albums I've gotten this year. There are no filler songs, songs that were added just to fill up album space, you know, B rated songs. You and Dwight should be very proud of this album, it's first class al the way!"…Norm Whitman, DETOURS, WYSO FM, Yellow Springs, OH
