ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"She fools you with her singing because it sounds so easy – but when it sounds easy, you’re in the hands of a hell of a singer. Her voice is warm and supple; her phrasing is impeccable. First-class musicians making first-class music." - Blues Matters, UK

"She renders the wide ranging material so effortlessly that it masks the care that undoubtedly went into it. The emotional span of the material from ballads to foot stompers across jazz, pop, blues, and gospel shows us that Biales is one of today’s better and most versatile vocalists.” - Elmore Magazine

"Lisa Biales has a voice that is always inviting. Sometimes it invites you to nod in agreement. Sometimes it invites you inside a song you’ve never heard before. Sometimes it invites you to sing along. And sometimes, you could swear that it invites you to go back in time to an era when a sexy lady at the mic in front of a live band seemed to be singing to just you alone, and supplying you with answers to all the big questions you have about life and love and all that jazz." - Gregory Victor, Parcbench NY

Lisa Biales – The beat Of My HeartBig song MusicLisa Biales is a blues diva whose voice is capable of delivering a myriad of blues stylings ranging fromtorchy ballads through lowdown 40’s blues via country gospel through to modern day blues – carrying it all off with a style, conviction and authenticity that most singers can only dream of. And, when you combine a voice like that with musicians of the calibre of Jim Pugh, Larry Taylor, tony Braunagel, Larry Fulcher, Joe Sublett, Johnny Lee Schell and Darrell Leonard you know you are in for a real bluestreat – and that’s just what this is.Biales opens with ‘Disgusted’ with her strutting vocals and swinging horns conjuring up a picture of a female BB King in New Orleans. We stay in the Crescent City on Allen Toussaint’s ‘I Don’t Wanna Hear it’ with it’s sultry vocals and horns – Fats Waller’s ‘Messin’ Around With The blues’ is pure 40’s late night blues replete with lowdown vocals, piano and horns – whilst Eric Bibb’s ‘Don’t Let Nobody Drag your Spirit Down’ transports you to a Southern Gospel church in the 50’s.Add in ‘I should Have Known Better’ where Biales’ haunting vocals are accentuated by piano and Cigfiddle – the classic blues feel of Lil Green’s ‘Romance In The Dark’ which is heightened by the clarity and purity of Biales’ vocals – and the wild gospel of Professor Bradford’s ‘Said I wasn’t Gonna Tell nobody’ – and you have a set that will delight blues lovers of all persuasions. - Mick Rainsford, Blues in Britain
