San Francisco’s genre-blending duo Sugar Ponies is taking vocalist Suzanne Kramer’s support of adoption and creating beautiful music with it. We’ve got the premiere of their new track “Simone”, which was written while Kramer was anxiously waiting to meet her own adopted daughter. Says Kramer, “I wrote this song for my daughter before I’d ever met her. Like most expectant mothers, I would spend time imagining who this little girl was going to be. She’s turning 10 soon. She’s so much more than I could have ever imagined. This is a love song to my daughter. I am so very in love with her. My wish is that all little girls are loved so much.”
Almost like a lullaby, this track starts out slow and peaceful, “la la la’s” a-plenty. As Kramer describes the physical attributes of the “little girl we call Simone”, she speaks for women around the world in their first memories with their own children, adopted or birthed. It’s a song about unconditional love, and it’s something we can all grasp to and find comfort in, in one way or another.
