Dana Cooper & Annika Fehling
film clips of songs from performance at the Cailloux Charter School, 5 March 2007

Dana and Annika have been visiting the ranch for almost a year now, visiting with the children and using their stories to write songs in support of the Children's Music Project.

A song written on a visit in September 2006, No Waterwell, has now been recorded and released on their new album Visby, Texas.

Dana also co-wrote the title song on the Children's Music Projects new CD Heart Like A Flower with Ranch resident Edlisha Crayton; the CD's due in weeks.

Dana is a legendary American songwriter, having hit the LA music scene as a 16-year-old. His critically acclaimed songs have long been considered Texas classics and he is constantly on worldwide tour showcasing his brilliant lyrics and soaring voice.

Annika fills similar shoes in her native Sweden, where she is not only a lyrical star, but a founder of the Singer/Songwriters of Sweden foundation. She has been sharing tours with Dana since they met at a songwriting seminar in Europe.

Together they have brightened lives here at the Ranch, giving freely of their time, talents and love.

Children's Music Project

The Children's Music Project is one of several fine arts programs at the Ranch that seek to discover, encourage and accommodate the artistic talents of our children.

With a state of the art recording studio, theatre and fine arts center, the Ranch is immersed in providing kids the opportunity to expand their horizons in ways that may lead to future vocations and careers.

Typically, children at the Ranch write poetry, which is then taken by professional songwriters and musicians and recorded in an effort to spread the words of the child and the story of their lives.

The project is now working on its third CD of songs featuring such luminaries as Dana Cooper, Annika Fehling, Chris Gage, Benita Arterberry-Burns, Stephen Bruton, Monte Montgomery, Flaco Jimenez, Sara Hickman, Tommy Spurlock, and Jamie Oldaker.

The Ranch and its fine arts programs are supported largely by private donations. If you would like to contribute to the cause, you can visit our Help Us page at http://www.youth-ranch.org, or mail us at P.O. Box 67, Ingram Texas 78025.
