Chuck drove out to Western Massachusetts to sit on Lisa’s front porch surrounded by chickens, a vocal rooster, two small children having an amazing time doing whatever small children feel like doing, bees and the occasional mouse to talk music, songwriting and Life in the Time of COVID.
Lisa’s latest album How We Want To Live is a beautiful record that reflects her many life changes over the past few years. Her songs are a musical ‘thank you’ to her grandmother who introduced her to the guitar and to songwriting, as well as a message to those in her life. The album reached #1 in Contemporary Folk on Roots Music Report, she was nominated in 2019 for Folk Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards and was the 2019 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Winner.
Her honest and well crafted songwriting reflect her own personality. Lisa is a calming presence, thoughtful and very in the moment.
It was appropriate to be surrounded by the wonderful chaos of life - the joyful sounds of her kids, a crowing rooster and the arrival of the Amazon delivery truck, which she hopes, one day, will deliver ice cream.
