So Many Stars & Corcovado



It was a lot of fun singing these love songs to the stars and sky on one of the windiest days I have ever experienced! It was so windy the sky was red with dust and dirt, with gusts up to 65 mph. I had to smile to myself as I came to the lyrics "the wind is filled with songs, so many songs." After the show, the night was still. The stars shone with a brilliance and clarity in a sky scrubbed clean by the wind. The moon, a mere sliver slung low, yielded to the dazzling display of the now silent night.

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.

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
