~ 25th July – Below is a personal message from Lisa on the progress of the CD

Hi everyone,
A wee up-date on the progress of the cd. Rick Price, my producer is finishing the mix of all the tracks and we master on the 10th which is the final stage of the recording process. I have just signed off on the artwork, which is very exciting. Once it’s mastered I start the rounds looking for a manager and once that’s done we do the rounds of the record companies. I love the cd and I hope you all do too. The kiwis may get to hear some soon on The Tem Show and also possibly on the Intrepid Journey TV show I did where I trekked round Malaysia – so keep an eye out for those.
Thanks for all your support and patience.
Have a lovely day,
Lisa x

Lisa’s style of music is hard to classify exactly, but we guess you could call it *contemporary folk*. It is close to a modern form of 60s type folk… very much music with story telling. Lisa has written all the lyrics herself.. and we are not being biased when we say they sound wonderful. We will be very excited to hear the finished product!
Lisa worked with Rick Price on the production of her album, and Rick is a well know Australian Singer/Songwriter, and has many accomplishment under his belt, which not only include his own albums, but also he has worked with many other artists.

~ 16th May – Word from Lisa on the 16th May is that she is half way through recording her songs at the moment, and things are still well on track.
