Don't Cry For Me Argentina

Any Evita fans out there? Here's a live recording of Don't Cry For Me Argentina with voice and guitar.

I first saw Evita in San Francisco. I found the production to be extremely moving, stirring something deep inside of my heart. Eva Perone was not on my radar in any way, in fact I hadn't even heard of Evita.

When the show began, I whispered to my Mother that it reminded me of Jesus Christ Super Star. She whispered back, "I think it's by the same guys." I shrugged ignorantly.

As I sat next to my Mother in the audience, I found myself sobbing quietly there in the dark. The story of a girl who rose above poverty and obscurity transcending humble beginnings with sheer will and ambition struck a chord with me.

Ill equipped to handle the vocal challenges of the score at the time, I didn't care. I couldn't help myself. Privately, I sang along with Elaine Page until I knew every breath on the London Cast album. It's so interesting to come back to this material after years and years of secretly holding this music inside.

"Have I said too much? There is nothing more I can think of to say to you." -Evita

A Studio Is A Studio

A snap during set up for rehearsal in my husband's art studio.

Here's a little live video from our show with Justin Bransford on bass and me and Jesse Vernier from Cords and Strings. This was our first outing on this material. Here I am dipping my toe in the waters of singing in Portuguese. I'm looking forward to exploring more lyrics in this poetic, liquid language of love. Enjoy, Lisa

Brazilian Exports

Here's a little sample from a LIVE set of Brazilian tunes we played at The Performance Space last week. I am loving working on this repetoire, so tender, sweet and sad with beautiful melodies and gentle rhythms. The sounds coming from Jesse Vernier's guitar are an inspiration. We've got some Portuguese tunes in the pipeline, too. 

Subtle, rich and romantic this is my first guitar/vocal duo endeavor. I hope you like this material on us. Jesse and I are looking to Samba our way into Summer offering private house concerts, gallery events and dinner music programs from LA to Santa Fe.
