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:

Ukulele cover ‘Someday We’ll Be Together’ by The Supremes

‘Remember Me’ original song on ukulele

Upcoming Headline Norwich Show - Bicycle Shop December 10th

On Wednesday December 10th I’ll be playing a special headline show at The Bicycle Shop. Tickets and info here.

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:

And thanks to Mick for filming this Tom Petty cover ‘I Won’t Back Down’ 

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.

  • Lisa Redford - I Just Can't Forget

    It has been a little while since my last All Things Norfolk column. I had a really busy summer playing lots of festivals in the area and further afield. Here in Norfolk I really enjoyed performing at the first F-19 festival, a major new music festival in Feltwell at the stunning St Mary’s Church; all profits from the festival went towards the upkeep of this stunning medieval building.

    I was also part of a brilliant line-up for The Waterfront Sessions. It was an all day promoted by The Tilting Sky celebrating some of the regions finest country and Americana artists by the riverside at Norwich Waterfront and it really showcased the wealth of talent here.

    In July I also released a single Let Go - the second from my latest EP Edge of Love. It has been receiving some lovely airplay on many stations and shows including BBC Introducing Norfolk. Edge of Love has continued to get great reviews, so much so that I’m excited to be releasing a new single I Just Can’t Forget next month. The ballad, like all of my songs, comes from the heart and has a more soulful country sound with harmonies, piano, pedal steel acoustic and electric guitar

    It features terrific local musicians: The Vagaband’s Jose McGill - who also produced the EP - plus Mark Howes from local blues duo Dove and Boweevil and Mikey Shaw on drums. The single has already been performed live in session for Whispering Bob TV’s Under the Apple Tree - intimate live acoustic sessions recorded in the home studio of legendary BBC broadcaster Bob Harris - certainly one of the highlights of my career so far!

  • Lisa Redford- Festivals

    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: 

    https://lisaredford.bandcamp.com

    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. 

     

  • Lisa Redford launches her first PledgeMusic Crowdfunding Project

    I am really excited to have launched my first ever PledgeMusic crowdfunding project for a brand new release. I have already started recording material with local band The Vagaband - recent recipients of The Music Award at the 2018 Norfolk Arts Awards - who I also recorded my last EP with.

    There are some very special rewards and exclusives on offer including two beloved guitars and some rare signed memorabilia from my back catalogue. You will also be helping Dogs Trust as I spend a lot of time walking rescue dogs in the area and their companionship is truly special. Please watch the video and check out the rewards on offer - I would so appreciate any shares on social media.
