Lisa Redford Unplugged - Headlining in Norwich Photo by Claudia Taveira

Hey everyone, hope you all had a lovely summer and have even managed to enjoy the little indian summer we’ve just had in Norfolk. I had a great time playing festivals and there are some live videos from them below. I’m really excited to be sharing the brand new music video for my song ‘Be Around’ which was filmed in Norfolk 

 

I am also delighted to announce a headline Norwich show at The Bicycle Shop in December. I love playing this lovely venue and last time it was sold out, so I hope to see some more Norwich fans to share what should be a very special evening

New Music Video ‘Be Around’ filmed in Norfolk

My album ‘Slipstream’ was recently reissued by Proper Distribution and from it here’s a new video for the song ‘Be Around’ filmed this summer on the coast on one of our glorious warm days!

Be Around Official Music Video

The video was made by hugely talented local film maker and photographer Claudia Taveira Photography. We’ve collaborated on a few projects this past year and she has filmed many lovely videos and shot photo shoots in the area. Norfolk provides many wonderful locations and here’s some of the other videos she’s filmed:

Festival Review & Live Festival Videos

Had a great time in August playing at Brownstock Festival in Essex and Weyfest in Surrey. The fun festival weekend was topped off by an excellent set by closing headliners Squeeze, bringing back fond memories from one of my first major gigs, supporting Glenn Tilbrook at Norwich Arts Centre! 

Thanks to Festivals for All for this lovely review of my set at Brownstock

Here’s also some live videos from both festivals:

Norwich Sound and Vision This Week

This week Norwich Sound and Vision comes to Norwich bringing 3 days of live music in venues across the city and it’s well worth going along to. I've been very fortunate to have been involved, performing one of the showcase evenings at the Bicycle Shop and also playing at a PRS opening reception and believe it's a truly exciting and vibrant festival that really puts Norwich on the UK music map. 

During the festival there's a great atmosphere and I've seen some amazing live performances at Norwich Arts Centre, Open, Olives, the Bicycle Shop and other key venues across the city. Not only is there the high quality of eclectic live music to see, during the day there’s also the conference itself. I've really enjoyed the excellent and relevant panel discussions from trusted and respected members of the music industry, some coming from around the world. I've really felt inspired and motivated after hearing what they've advised and had to say about the industry. 

Importantly, the festival also provides a major opportunity for media, artists, labels, filmmakers, writers and anyone involved in a creative industry to all meet and network. I've made connections with bloggers and radio from attending the festival and as a musician and music lover Sound and Vision has become one of the essential dates in the music calendar.

    It has been a very busy and exciting time as my new EP Edge of Love - recorded and mastered in Norwich and featuring a whole host of local talent - is now released worldwide!

    I have been blown away by the wonderful airplay and reviews I have received including 4 stars in national music magazines Maverick and RnR. The title track also features on the excellent Un-Herd cover mount CD which comes with the May/June issue of RnR, in shops now.

    I have been interviewed for a few local glossy publications - including Norwich Resident Magazine, KL Magazine and Norfolk Magazine - as well as had airplay on BBC Radio Norfolk and Suffolk, most recently a live acoustic session for Drive Time on BBC Radio Suffolk with Stephen Foster. 

  • Lisa Redford Unplugged - Anything But Easy

    It’s been a little while since my last All Things Norfolk article as it has been a very busy time. Anything But Easy - the first single from my brand new EP “Edge of Love” - was released on 22nd February and I’ve been working really hard to promote it, doing radio and magazine interviews.  It has been wonderful to receive such a lovely response and so much airplay including many BBC Shows and various stations across the world.  I was also recently interviewed by Sam Day on BBC Radio Norfolk and chose my Norfolk Anthems (favourite songs!) as well as talked about the single. 

    It is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and also at my Bandcamp page:

    Huge thanks to All Things Norfolk who has already shared the official music video for Anything But Easy.  Filmed in beautiful Dunwich and Walberswick, Suffolk on one of those glorious February days we enjoyed recently! Thanks to talented local videographer David McKenna at Light to Love Productions for filming and directing and capturing such a magic light.

  • Lisa Redford - Autumn

    I am really excited that the PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign for my next release is already at 86%! A huge thank you to all those of you who have pledged or shared the project. As an independent artist it really means a lot. 

    Recording for the new EP has just finished here in Norwich and it has been a really productive and exciting process. As mentioned, I am working with the super talented musician and producer José McGill – band-leader of the award-winning local band Vagaband – who has created some beautiful arrangements and played an array of instruments.

    There is also a host of other local musicians who have been involved. Noel Dashwood – from Norwich based folk trio Alden Patterson and Dashwood - has contributed his wonderful dobro and harmonies. We have performed live together in the area playing festivals such as Folk East in Suffolk and supporting Sarah Darling and Eliza Carthy at Norwich Waterfront and OPEN. He will be performing with his trio at Epic Studios on 22nd November opening for renowned folk artists Show of Hands.

    Norfolk Day will be upon us this Friday, 27th July and I am really excited to share this beautiful new music video from my incredibly talented student Breeze Redwine. Especially filmed for Norfolk Day and showcasing the stunning countryside of the county, it has already had a wonderful response and been selected as the official song for the occasion. The track is "Trust"  an original song written by myself and Breeze which is also the title track of her debut EP. Everyone involved in the video is from Norfolk, from the musicians to the video director-producer David McKenna, and the project was sponsored by Rushall-based Vincent’s Garage.

    Some of the county’s most iconic landmarks feature in the video including including Thurne in the Norfolk Broads, Happisburgh Light House, Cromer Pier and The Waveney Valley.
