Really excited to hear that I’m a Semi-Finalist in the renowned International Songwriting Competition with ‘Courage’ a song I wrote and performed beautifully by Breeze Redwine. It’s judged by artists such as Bastille, Lorde, Donovan, Chris Cornell, Ziggy Marley, Tom Waits, Keane, Ryan Bingham and Rickie Lee Jones while previous winners include Passenger, Bastille, Kimbra and Vance Joy. Wow!

Now online! Brand new videos from this week’s fun session Epic Studios here’s ‘Reminders’ and more to come!
Plus there’s another amazing review of ‘Reminders’ in a review of ‘IndieVidual’ Vol 1, a brand new excellent compilation now on iTunes Huge thanks to Rock N Roll in My Soul an honour to be compared to one of my musical heroes Neil Young!
‘Reminders by Lisa Redford is haunting. With one of the most unique vocals I’ve heard, comprised of an intrinsic sorrow and empathy, this song reminds me very much of Neil Young; the soft, pounding melody is delicately powerful, made up of acoustic embers and possession almost surreal dimension. It’s truly an artist’s song that channels genuine experience, emotions and pain’
Wonderful packed homecoming gig at The Bicycle Shop last Thursday! Thanks so much to everyone for coming out and making it such a special night. For those of you asking for the live and acoustic albums, they will be available soon at the online store here.
