Hey all! been very busy lately working on a very cool project. I love new creative musical challenges and I have been writing the music for a beautiful US short film ‘Q to the 6’ directed by Gabe Rodriguez ~ check out the trailer below with my voice and music!!
As I mentioned in a previous post I recently did a very cool interview for the June edition of NYC magazine TalkMag. The article is now online!

Lots of fun playing at BritFestNYC at The Delancey and adding in some favourite covers too. Cool new live video from the show below ~ thanks to Dean Holtermann for posting!
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
just scroll down a little bit!
Happy Easter everyone! Here’s another new song about my life and times in NYC so far, with lyrics and some sweet mandolin! Hope to record all my brand new songs very soon ~ will keep you posted!
Lisa Redford ‘Summer on the L’
‘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..’
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!!
Had a wonderful time in sunny Paris. Photos are at my facebook page
