Mastering my New Release

Me in front of my gold discs! ha, not really (maybe someday!). Great day at the studio this week in NJ mastering my new songs. They sound fab!!! Thanks so much to G and J Audio! Was wonderful to work with Gene Paul, son of legendary guitarist Les Paul. Next step ~ artwork!

US TV Appearance ‘Music and the Mountains’

Had a great time enjoying my first Thanksgiving here and had a productive day in the studio last week. Final mixes sound GREAT! so excited. Can’t wait to release my new songs and play them on my UK tour 2012!

Ahead of my latest (third) performance and interview on US TV show Alive with Clive’ being posted online, here’s a clip of me singing “Music and The Mountains” from a previous appearance. ‘Music and the Mountains’ features on ‘Lisa Redford Live’. There were some technical issues but love seeing my lovely Martin guitar (which is back in England, sob, but we’ll be reunited soon for my UK tour!).

World Premiere of ‘Q to the 6 Train’ Film Featuring My Original Score Wednesday September 7th!

As you know, I was chosen to write the music for a beautiful US short film ‘Q to the 6 Train’ and its world premiere has been announced for Wednesday September 7th in NYC. From the press release by film maker G Rodriguez:

It will play on September 7th at 6pm in a block with two other films.  All the films playing have a 9/11 theme, and I think will represent the voice of the generation that’s grown up these past 10 years.  Right now Q To the 6 Train is scheduled to be played first, though these things always change.  There will be a small reception beforehand.

The event is at The Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue (at 2nd St.) in Manhattan. NewFilmmakers charges a standard admission of $6 that lasts the whole evening, meaning you can watch one film or as many as 12 with just that

Interview in this month’s VoluME Magazine

Happy May everyone!

Always love this time of year and been keeping very busy and creative here in Manhattan. Been to some some really cool and inspiring music and film events including the launch of the Tribeca Film Festival which debuted the new Cameron Crowe documentary film ‘The Union’ (this was then followed by a live solo appearance by Sir Elton John himself who started the set with two perennial favourites and classics ‘Tiny Dancer’ and a song I’ve been to known to perform ‘Rocket Man’). Also saw The Swell Season Movie and was moved all over again by the heartfelt and passionate music of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglov.

Last night was at a taping of VH1’s ‘Storytellers’ with Ray LaMontagne. Amazing sound, great band and highlights included a really cool version of one of my favourite Neil Young’s classics ‘Out on the weekend’. There’s just so much to inspire you here!

More news and videos to come, in the meantime check out a cool interview and feature in the May edition of ‘VoluME’ magazine all about live album ‘Lisa Redford Live’. Direct link is here

Paris, New York, Electric Guitars and Singing with Eve Selis

 

‘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
