In The End - Lisa Wright
It is thrilling at the moment to have some excellent young UK singer-songwriters in our part of the indie music world and another of our favourites is our next LCM featured artist Essex based Lisa Wright. Lisa is currently the Nashville Songwriters Association's 'Artist to Watch' and BBC Introducing Essex 'Sound of 2017'. She will be releasing her eagerly anticipated new EP 'Wednesday's Child' on the 23rd April. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is a super live version of 'In The End',a song written with Holloway Road. https://youtu.be/CD2c0TbzY4w
Despite graduating with an acting degree from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA), Lisa is quickly becoming known as a fast rising star within the UK’s country scene.
2015 was a game-changer for Lisa. In January, she toured the UK, opening for a number of artists including SaraBeth, Jess & The Bandits and Honey Ryder. The combination of her unique songwriting style and on-stage charisma started to cause a buzz within the UK scene, soon catching the attention of some of Nashville's top producers.
So, in the summer, Lisa flew to Nashville to record her debut EP 'Before I Die', also giving her debut performance at the prestigious Bluebird Cafe. Upon release, 'Before I Die' entered into the iTunes country charts at No.4, making Lisa the only independent UK artist in the Top 20. Since then the tracks have been featured on country radio both in the US and UK, including BBC Introducing, BBC Essex and Amazing Radio.
Described as a cross between Alison Krauss and Kacey Musgraves and bringing an "element of modernity to country/folk", it is no wonder the Nashville Songwriters' Association (NSAI) recognised Lisa as their 'One to Watch'.
