New Video Shoot

Here are a couple of photos from a new video that I’ve been working on in the area with Claudia Taveira Photography. We already filmed some outside shots at the end of last year and we can’t wait to share it with you when it’s done!

 

Passenger Acoustic Cover

Another free download for you and here’s a live acoustic cover of a beautiful Passenger song. The lyrics really  resonated with me  and I love his writing. It  was exciting that the artist himself took the time to listen and described the version as ‘lovely’. Listen and download here

  • Fun and Free Community Singing Sessions to Boost Wellbeing

    Did you know that singing is scientifically proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and release endorphins? Group singing also builds a sense of community and boosts your confidence and wellbeing.

    Music and singing has always been there for me; during these past few tough months it has particularly provided a real release and escape from the difficult time we have all faced.

    During these past two years, many of us have struggled with feelings of isolation and loneliness, and as a performing songwriter and music tutor who thrives on the energy of an audience and enjoys the interaction with my students, I have found it really challenging. Despite continuing to find alternative ways to perform my music online and teach my music lessons since March 2020 via Zoom, it was very strange not seeing others for a very long time.

  • Musicians are hoping charity single in memory of Connor raises more than £1,000 for EACH

    Five talented musicians have vowed to glean something positive from a harrowing situation by releasing a charity single in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

    Norfolk indie-rock band Red Wine Talk hope to raise more than £1,000 and will be releasing The Deep Blue Sea Between Us on 1st December.

    Songwriter and guitarist Callum Robb says the ambient, ten-minute track “fell from his guitar” – but admits it was driven by raw emotion because it is in memory of friend Connor Clark. The 18-year-old was training at the Royal Marine Commando Training Centre, in Devon, and died on 12th June, 2021. His body was found near a railway track.

    Now Callum and Co have decided to release their charity single for EACH and headed into the studio to record it on 7th November. It will now be fully mixed and mastered for release on all streaming platforms and CD. 

  • One in the Crowd, New Charity Song for Safe Rescue for Dogs

    As some of you know, last year I wrote a fundraising single for Norwich community station Future Radio, This Fine City - a celebration of Norwich and also a message of hope with us all coming together to get through this challenging and unprecedented time. It felt very rewarding that it was received so well, gaining radio airplay and local media coverage - including being featured here in an article I wrote for All Things Norfolk - whilst, more importantly, raising funds to help Future find a new city centre studio.

    It’s continued to be a challenging start to the year for us all; for myself, with the lack of gigs and festivals on the horizon, it can be hard to find inspiration. I wanted to start the year on a positive note; be creative, while also doing something good, and felt that I wanted to do something for another local charity. One in the Crowd is a new acoustic song in aid of Safe Rescue for Dogs, whose events I have previously attended. As a huge animal lover and dog walker - mostly to springer spaniel Wesley who was also my co-star in the video for From Afar, a single I wrote and recorded during the first lockdown - I know the joy and unconditional love that they bring into our lives.

    In her latest feature for All Things Norfolk, Lisa focuses on the exciting launch of her fundraising single in aid of Future Radio  "This Fine City" about Norwich and how we're all coming together znd overcoming this tough time.

    "I began volunteering at Future Radio in 2018, regularly hosting the Afternoon Session and also briefly covering NR Sounds which showcases bands and artists from Norwich and the surrounding areas of Norfolk and North Suffolk. It has been so rewarding and enjoyable to be part of the station - certainly been a real buzz broadcasting live to listeners and sharing my passion for music"

    "I am particularly drawn to its fantastic specialist music programming covering a mix of various genres including soul/Motown, electronica, Americana, film and TV soundtracks, drum and bass, reggae, hip hop, indie, rock/metal, afrobeat/world, as well as being a platform for anyone in Norwich with something to announce, promote or share. Its eclectic, BBC 6Music-style daytime playlist showcases new music from emerging artists and many shows have national and international listeners".
