Album Notes
The single "Holiday in Oakland" celebrates my Northern California town and the amazing music it has produced. Sing it and play it on every holiday! Featuring tasty background vocals by singer Anna Lissa Patterson and tracks by the amazing producer-engineer-composer Jim (James) Gardiner.

" "Holiday in Oakland" … is an effortless, breezy sweep through the decidedly R&B-gospel influences of that tough but tender city… her rap is flawless, and unobtrusive, because the “Bump City” references blend evenly, like redwoods, salsa in the dark, Tower of Power, the Pointer Sisters, and Digital Underground."
- Carol Banks Weber, jazz critic,

"Where things really get interesting is "Holiday in Oakland," a track with an old-school beat and a melody that really sings… when Lisa B raps the names of some Oakland musical legends… it's a spirited move."
- Jordan Richardson, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

" "Holiday in Oakland” funks along easily."
- Kirk Silsbee, Los Angeles Times

"Lisa B wields her talent for mixmastering musical styles in "Holiday in Oakland," a paean to her California hometown that combines midtempo funk with a lyric tribute to some of Oaktown's musical heroes."
- Michael E. Ross, blogger and critic on PopMatters, The Root, and elsewhere, writing on Amazon
