Tennessee - Lisa Wright
After an excellent launch last night at 229 in London, our next LCM featured artist is the very talented Essex based Country singer-songwriter Lisa Wright. Lisa officially releases her four track 'Mind Of Mine' EP tomorrow and our LCM #SongOfTheDay is the excellent lead single 'Tennessee' which was written by Lisa and Kaity Rae. It was inspired by Lisa's trip to the US in late 2017, reflecting the notorious ups and downs of the music industry and the search for purpose in life.
Two of the tracks were solely written by Lisa, with ‘Giving Up The Ghost’ penned in collaboration with Jake Etheridge, known for his starring role as Sean McPherson on CMT’s Nashville TV show, and having also lent his songwriting talents to the show’s soundtrack.
Combining Lisa's staple of honest and emotive lyrics with a new exploration of sound and style, it’s obvious that ‘Mind of Mine’ will showcase this young artist’s ability to continually re-create herself, while staying true to her roots. Having opened for US country star Cam earlier this month and with support dates with the likes of Ward Thomas & Phil Vassar under her belt, it’s easy to see why the Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAI) have declared Lisa Wright “one to watch”.
