ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Weather Changer Girl" is Lisa's 2nd CD (3rd full-length album). "Weather Changer Girl" features performances and mixes by Simon Raymonde of the Cocteau Twins, as well as a performance by Michael Steele of the Bangles. Lisa and her band (Lisa Dewey & The Lotus Life) live and perform in the San Francisco Bay Area. Band members are John Testani on drums, Keith St. Thomas on lead guitar, and Paul Zimmerman on bass. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Music, Lisa decided to start her own indie label (Kitchen Whore Records). Lisa Dewey and band are currently working on her 5th full-length album.

Lisa is a featured vocalist on Marc Moreland's (Wall of Voodoo) debut solo album Marc Moreland Mess "Take it to the Spotlight" (Kitchen Whore). Lisa has a few guest performances on the Kelsi Arnold "Dulcinea" album. Lisa had a small role in the feature films 'Some Prefer Cake' and 'BERTA', and her music has been heard in five films. Lisa's first book, "spank.", a book of poetry, prose, short stories, one-liners and ...a recipe, is out on Fifth Planet Press (Atlanta, GA). "spank." is available through lisadewey.com, Small Press Distribution (spdbooks.org) and amazon.com.

REVIEWS
'From the land of dot coms and um, Smashmouth, it's a refreshing thing to put in the new disc by San Jose's own Lisa Dewey and experience something completely different. "Weather Changer Girl" evokes a sound pleasantly melodic and hypnotic, yet at the same time with a strong delivery and sometime growl that holds the pace. Opening track "Watching Her Fingers" launches the album with a dreamy soundscape that would make any Cocteau Twin proud. As a matter of fact, this record does feature a Twin, Simon Raymonde, on two tracks with his mixes on four of the tracks. While Raymonde's presence is felt especially on "Heathens" (sounding almost like a lost track from the Cocteau Twins', Heaven or Las Vegas), Lisa's delivery is all her own with lyrics like "I wanted to take you on the bar...So... Belly ache goes far...One down." Pick up this record and hear a talented, new songwriter at work and at play; doing what she does best.'
- Scott Garfield and Ingrid, KZFR, Chico.

'Local folk/pop/alternative musician, Lisa Dewey's new CD, "Weather Changer Girl", is true to it's name: It roils with unpredictable emotional weather, from misty dreamscapes of love and infatuation to some rumblings of romantic thunder. Four of the album's tracks were mixed by Simon Raymonde of the Cocteau Twins, and throughout the album there are appealing hints of that group's floaty, ethereal quality, but always nicely grounded by Dewey's clear, ringing vocals, solid guitar work and curtly poetic lyrics. The San Jose-based musician has also founded her own label, Kitchen Whore Records, and currently has a book of poetry and short stories titled "spank." available at, among other places, her website, www.lisadewey.com.'
- Elmann Washington, San Jose Metro.

Lisa Dewey's delicate yelp not only conjures the Cocteau Twins' wispy witch, Liz Fraser, she even got some sonic aid from the Twins' Simon Raymonde on her latest album 'Weather Changer Girl'.
-John Graham, Portland Willamette Week April 4, 2001.

Lisa Dewey is a bit of a car crash of ethereal cool. Her voice is deep and heavy, the guitars sound like tumbling stars, and when I hear the music, it makes me think of flowers growing on Neptune's surface.
- Jamie S. Rich, Portland Mercury April, 2001.

'...Speaking of neo-goth, San Jose singer/songwriter, LISA DEWEY played a marvelous show at the Jury room Saturday, March 31st alongside Sin in Space. Backed by a mellow three-piece band with 12-string guitars and plenty of effects pedals, Dewey gracefully sang simple but pretty tunes full of Cocteau Twins sensibilites.'
- David Espinoza Metro Santa Cruz April 4th, 2001.

MODERN MARK

Makes me want to ease into the stars...
EAT YOUR HEART OUT MAZZY STAR! Slightly darker and moodier than Lola CUKI, Weather Changer Girl places the listener in a flying escapade of relevant lyrics, slight ambience, and deep song progressions. The opener, “Watching Her Fingers,” has something about it that just takes me away into the sky. It makes me want to rest on the grass late at night and “…Ease into the stars bright…Well.” “…Matador, Your Bullfighter!” is a serious song with gut wrenching chords and changes and a story about abused and false love. “Heathens” is a nice song to sit and close your eyes to as Simon Raymonde of the COCTEAU TWINS does his stuff. “Startle Heart” is a fascinating song that should not be overlooked. You can actually hear the love in Lisa’s voice as she sings with her softhearted touch. “Takin’ Out The Trash” sounds like something that could have been on Lola CUKI, but fits better here as it offers the listener a tease as to what they might be missing if they don’t have that album. “Stormy Colored Clouds” portrays Lisa’s vocal style with a perfect foundation of sustained vocals and swaying guitars as she lyrically sings about positive acceptance and enlightenment (this one is my favorite). “I’m not Your Lover” is a funny little ditty that shows Lisa can tell anyone off in HER own cute punky way. Makes me want to piss her off just to see her get cute…when she’s angry.

Wicked and lovely vocals and music
Sharp, concise lyrics about love and loss sung so that they bite every time you hear them. The soaring, jangling guitars soothe and break your heart all at the same time. Songs like I Want to be Your Matador and Stormy Colored Clouds, put you on the edge and bring you back just before you crash. A cd that grows deeper with every listen.

I need more music like this...
Well, as i said in another review, my hobby (and reason for living) is writing, and im a bit touchy (maybe elitist) about the music i listen while i write. I learned about Lisa Dewey because of some nice lists here at cdbaby and decided to give it a shot, i mean, what the hell? i decided to just buy the cd and listened to it about three times. I cant get it out of the stereo. Sorry. Too good. Very nice! :)
