Catch the Moon is a children's album recorded by longtime friends Lisa Loeb & Elizabeth Mitchell. Liz Mitchell is a noted performer of childrens music and key member of the modern rock band Ida. The package also contains a children's book written by Erin Courtney and illustrated by Brooke Mitchell, who is Elizabeths mom. The book is based on the CDs title song which was written by Lisa, Elizabeth, Elizabeth's husband and longtime musical partner Daniel Littleton and engineer Warren Defever (also known for his own records on the 4AD label under the moniker His Name Is Alive).
In additional to the title track, the music CD of Catch The Moon features traditional American family favorite folk songs like "Big Rock Candy Mountain," "Oh Susanna," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Little Red Caboose." Loeb and Mitchell also adapted traditional folk songs from around the world including Japanese "Donguri," the French "Fais Do Do" and the Spanish "La Manita." There's a version of Bob Dylan's "New Morning" that sounds like it was always meant to be in this soothing, uplifting company, and a handful of new songs by Lisa and Elizabeth written especially for this project
