UPDATE, JANUARY 13, 2020  After many years of being a Hostbaby customer, Hostbaby has sold my account to another web hosting company.  Please excuse the appearance of the website as I learn the ropes at the new company.  Bear with me please:  eventually,  I hope my site will be better than ever.  Thank you.  Martha Maria 

Welcome to Dogwood Daughter & Lily Cat Music for Kids!



My little studio in the woods .You can listen to music while you peruse my website.  See the bar at the bottom of the page? Just click. 


Hi, I'm Martha Maria.  I record from my little studio in the woods. For better or worse, I'm a one woman operation:  I write all words and music, sing and play all parts and instruments, and even do my own sound engineering.

Listening to beautiful music is ALWAYS free here.   Just go to the "Listening Room" page and click on any song.  You can download my recordings of traditional hymns and many other songs without charge.


A peek at my album of newly composed nocturnes, piano solos for all ages, music to relax and settle in for the evening.  Available in all formats on Bandcamp, (Bandcamp is so good to indie artists!) iTunes, and Amazon.  Also streaming on Spotify.  Please do me the honor and favor of adding some Night Owl tracks to your Spotify play list.  Thank you!
