ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lisa Biales - “Belle of the Blues”

Lisa Biales’ musical roots run deep. Her love and appreciation of singing came at an early age as she grew up in a musical family. Lisa started playing the guitar at the age of eleven, at age thirteen she was playing for church services, and when Lisa was seventeen, she was singing Jazz Standards in her parents Dixieland Band.

In 2003, Lisa earned a Masters Degree in Theater from Ohio University, her professors were encouraging her to continue with a PhD. After much soul searching, Lisa decided she had gone far enough in academia and decided to quit her day job to give her undivided attention to the music that had been calling her for so many years.

In 2006, Lisa turned her focus to songwriting and recording. She released an album of original music entitled, "Chasing Away The Blues" which was produced with Grammy Nominated Celeste Friedman. The album is receiving international attention on the folk and blues charts and her song “Where The Buckwheat Blooms” topped the International Folk Play list at #32 that year, right between Bill Monroe and Cat Stevens. . . not bad company. "A taste of soul, and the blues . . . elements that have ensured pure musical art." ~ NPR Music

In 2007, Lisa released “Come To Me” which was recorded with Nashville producer Gary Scott. "It is very exciting and inspiring to collaborate with such talent." Scott said. “Come To Me” showcases Lisa’s talent for writing a song that is perfect for her voice.”

In 2008, Lisa released a collection of folk, roots and traditional American tunes for children called “Yellow Shoes.” John Funnell of 88.9 WYN-FM, Australia says, “Yellow Shoes just proves that children's songs have a lot to offer adults, too.”

“Hey There” was also released in 2008. This CD was recorded in mostly one takes, at home with no fancy footwork or overdubs. “The Norman Rockwell of songwriters with a crystal pure voice.” - Marc Nolis, Mazzmuzika, Belgium

“Closet Hippie” released in 2010 is Lisa’s most honest and intimate work to date. As her writing continues to evolve, her performances are deeply moving and magical as she taps into the essence of each song. “Lisa’s version of the Jimi Hendrix song “Little Wing” ranks among those of John Mayer, Sting and Clapton.” ~ Brian O’Donnell, 89.7 WNKU-FM

In 2012, Lisa released “Just Like Honey” which was produced by EG Kight and Paul Hornsby. The album stayed on the roots music reports for over a year, and was played on Sirius XM’s Bluesville extensively. This introduction into the blues was met with enthusiasm from blues fans, DJ’s, and critics alike. "When I play your song PEACHES, the phone rings off the hook! - Linda Yohn, DJ WEMU "Lisa Biales has one of those great voices of our times." - Cascade Blues Association

In 2013, Lisa released “Singing In My Soul” with Ricky Nye & The Paris Blues Band further garnering her a place in the blues world. “I wanted to make a record of upbeat, happy early blues tunes.” All cover tunes with the exception of “Magic Garden,” showcasing Lisa’s incredible vocals and an uncanny ability to take a cover tune and make it fresh and new. "Lisa Biales has one of those great voices of our times." - Cascade Blues Association

In 2014, Lisa releases “Belle Of The Blues” a fitting moniker for someone who has spent her career making great music. Featuring seven songs from the EG Kight songbook. Kight and Paul Hornsby produce this CD with Tommy Talton on acoustic guitar, dobro and electric slide, Randall Bramblett on Hammond B3, Hornsby on Piano. The disc features a duet with Kight. The title cut was written by Kight and long time writing partner Tom Horner for the project. Tracks from Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie and a co-write with Biales, Kight and Horner is sure to put a smile on your face.

Lisa Biales is comfortable and makes you feel right at home when she’s on the stage. She presents her original early blues influenced music as effortlessly as if she were sitting at your dining room table drinking a cup of tea. “Like a great Zen Master, Lisa zones into each magical musical moment.” – Michael Kalter, Musician
