‘Woke up it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I saw..
Was the sun through yellow curtains, and a rainbow on the wall..’
Hey everyone from Chelsea, NY!
Back here in my US base after a busy March. Paris shows were so much fun and I also did my first ever gig playing electric! (picture above).
I also did a lovely radio session for Brooklands Radio where I played 3 songs live and chose some of my musical inspirations. Plus I received more orders for the signed live CD. Thanks so much!!
The highlight was playing a lovely show at St John’s Church in Farncombe, Surrey where I was also invited to sing with the amazing US artist Eve Selis. I have played a few shows in the past with Eve and she is such a terrific and inspiring performer. It was an honour to sing 2 songs with her, the beautiful lilting traditional song ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ and the incredible ‘Hallelujah’
Paris and New Videos!
Had a wonderful time in sunny Paris. Photos are at my facebook page
Here is ‘Love you Anyway’ from Cafe L’E’tabli
I also had so much fun singing harmonies with my talented singer/songwriter friend Elsa Siugo. We did cool live versions of the wonderful Ryan Adams songs ‘When the Stars go blue’ and ‘Oh my Sweet Carolina’ ~ videos to come at the youtube channel

From Brooklands Radio:
‘There’s another chance to hear last Monday’s show with David Durant and his studio guest Lisa Redford, an English singer song-writer currently living in New York. During her visit to her motherland she took some time out to visit the Brooklands Radio studios for a one hour session which we bring you tonight. Here is what others have to say about this talented chanteuse: “one of our finest singer/songwriters” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2, “brilliant! Lisa has a great voice” Glenn Tilbrook, Squeeze, “In a sea of smart female singer-songwriters, Lisa Redford is an admiral.? Maverick Magazine, “There is a warmth and welcoming vibe to Redford?s music that really is difficult to resist.” Americana UK 8 out of 10.
