Hey there! My name is Lisa Darling and I've been singing since I was a wee little girl. Originally from Ireland, my maternal family’s roots run deep with the love and passion of singing passed down from many generations. Most of my childhood memories include singing old lullabies, show tunes and war songs alongside my nana, grandad and sister. As an adolescent, I began singing these songs to my closest friends, and continued for years, eventually singing to their little ones when they were born.
The idea of sharing these songs of kin with a larger audience came in 2012, after uncovering clinical evidence in the U.S. and abroad that explained how lullabies produced medicinal outcomes in Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units. Being in the medical sales industry for several years and working alongside Child Life Specialists around the country, I realized the importance and relevance of this data and became inspired to help heal through singing in my own way.
I started Little Darling in 2014 as a way to make healing songs easily accessible to parents and caregivers, and to help raise our collective awareness of music's powerful positive impact on our health. My lullaby connections have extended to other populations including palliative care patients and adults with special needs, and I'm deepening my practice as a student in the Integrative Sound and Music Institute Certification Program at the Open Center in New York, NY.
