Making the most of a sunny day! Cool new photo shoot and video. Playing my Baby Taylor and Luna Ukulele in the sunshine! Thanks to Claudia Taveira Photography and also the wonderful Taylor Guitars and Luna Guitars for sharing the video.
Happy new year to you all. Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2013. Belated new years present, an unplugged performance of my song ‘The Boy Who..’ from ‘Clouds with Silver’:
Plus here’s a new interview I just did with this excellent Americana/country music blog. Big thanks to Kasey Stone.
Next big gig – Have also just been asked to support Hazel O’Connor during her Breaking Glass Barefoot 2013 tour at the Fisher Theatre, Bungay, Suffolk on March 6th. Tickets £16. Details here
Brilliant new review of the ‘Reminders’ ep. Thanks to the excellent Maverick Magazine. A thrill to be compared to one of my songwriting heroes, Carole King!
‘I was taken aback at the maturity in both her vocals and songwriting…The production quality is superlative, the songs exceptionally well-written, especially the opening “Reminders” with the intuitive lyrics. “Dreaming In Crowds” is a gently flowing harmonic beauty with a kind of Carole King feel, without in any way sounding like the legendary singer-songwriter. Here’s a young lady who’s blossomed into a mighty fine singer-songwriter deserving of the widest possible recognition. I think it’s time that she took the plunge and recorded a full album with similar quality songs and production as this … it would be a world-beater.’
Reflecting on some great gigs that I’ve played this year. New live video of ‘Remember Me’ during my recent gig at Farncombe Music Club supporting Sam Baker and Carrie Elkin. The song is already a big live favourite and hope to record it soon.
So cool that my country love song ‘Carolina Rain’ (from first album ‘Slipstream’ has made The Alternate Roots Magazine Valentines sampler!
Download the song here until February 19th :
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!).
