June was a month of late night sunsets, early morning sunrises on the Island of Rousay in Orkney, Scotland.
Living on the North Sea, we recorded, composed, and hosted a jam session with the island musicians.
This magical location is a automatic tonic of creativity and grounding for me.
Ken King and Camille Hewett flew to us with location gear to film a video for the song I wrote about the island.
Tommy Gibson, our resident dear friend escorted us to locations about the island, and shared many a meal and historic “stories” (humorous and tragic).
The song is my of two star crossed soul mates finding each other and making a life together in 1896. In the exact church/media location we rented and stayed in. The Release of the video/song “Isle of Rousay” will be December 2017 .
My New CD
My new CD “Stories” is coming soon! Single song release’s on the internet first.
This record has been waiting to be birthed for 2 years. Two award winning songs that find their home with ten
other relatives. Traveling the road map of life’s joys and lessons, this Americana /Folk record joins together my favorite creative team of musicians, Kevin Zoernig, Justin Bransford, Jeff Sussmann, Scott Shane, Adrienne Bellis and Caitlin Thomas.
Lisa’s CDs now available for download.
