ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With an innovative blend of jazz, soul, folk, and cabaret, “Bridges” is a stunning collection of sultry standards and soulful original compositions, all arranged by the Oakland-based Forkish and backed by an impressive array of studio musicians. Building on the intimate, confessional lyrics and memorable melodies of Forkish’s acclaimed first album, "Between You and Me”, “Bridges” adds new layers and sounds to Forkish’s repertoire. The album is aptly named, as Forkish’s work—from the songwriting to the arranging to the performing—spans genres and generations, connecting classic elements to contemporary approaches. The sound is mature yet playful, romantic yet raw, as Forkish’s rich voice glides through harmonies, lingering low and soaring high. Forkish is a storyteller, and her bold lyrics touch on everything from new romance (opening track “Adrenaline”) to resisting sexual violence (“Solidarity”). Meticulously selected covers range from a bossanova-esque take on “I Could Have Danced All Night” to an uptempo version of Steven Stills’ still-relevant “For What It’s Worth”. Forkish is at ease with fuller, multi-instrument arrangements (“No More Blues”) as well as ones that are stripped down to just piano or guitar (“Adrenaline”). Either way, all twelve tracks on “Bridges” feel innovative and new yet rooted in classical jazz sensibilities.

“Bridges” is a sophisticated sophomore effort that represents a mature, bold and passionate artist. Lisa Forkish is truly an ‘artist with her heart in her mouth’, and her love for art comes through on every new track.
