-Live recordings from Facebook Live
-Copies of the original handwritten lyrics
-Personal notes about each song

Included is a rare and unreleased recorded demo version of Anything. If you're like me and really geek out over getting to hear the process and transformation of a song, this is for you!
There are Facebook live solo versions of the songs and 2 album cuts as well. For those who have only heard the solo thang, I wanted to include the recorded version because they represent so much what I love about writing music. I am completely in love with classic Soul music. I love the call and answer harmonies, weaving of strings, interesting guitar licks, and some good feeling vibes. It is exactly what I have set out to bring forth in my recordings.
Also included are the handwritten copies of the lyrics for each song with a personal side note.
Stay Right Here
Stay Right Here
Stay Right Here is a collection of songs inspired by Stax, Atlantic Records of the 60s and 70s. Use of string arrangements, three part harmony call and answer vocals ala The Sweet Inspirations, Wurlitzer and guitar licks weave the seam of the music. ] ‘Stay Right Here’ boasts Eric Johnson’s engineer, Kelly Donnelly behind the board on lead vocals, mixing and mastering. Johnny Radelat of Gary Clark Jr. appears on drums on the CD except for tracks 5 & 8. Nick Connolly of Delbert McClinton adds Wurlitzer and piano on tracks 1, 3, and 5.

Simple is the first album I did completely on my own. I recorded the entire album on GarageBand. There are no physical copies left of this EP. Pay what you want to download. Look for vinyl on this one coming soon! I experimented picking up different instruments, microphones, etc. (ie: The song Simple is 1 dynamic mic stuck in the middle of the drum set, & yes that's me playing them) I had wonderful musicians and friends step in on some of the songs. Eric Manegold plays drums on Bring Yourself Back, and Sooner or Later. Kevin Fallon plays Lead Guitar solo's on Simple and High On Her Perch. Scotty X plays Bass on Swamp Song & Bring Yourself Back. Here's some of the write ups it received: SEATTLE SOUND MAGAZINE Dec. ‘08 " Lisa Marshall's first solo album carries a heavy debt to the Motown era; backup singers croon to Marshall's soaring vocals, while tambourines and bass riffs stroke and jingle each piece to perfection. Like late Tina Turner, the swinging melody dips and soars with lyrics about defeat and triumph, and defeat again. It's the contrast of it all that gets you. Like the groove that underpins lines like "What makes a heart break so slow?" Or Marshall's surprising compositions; her voice belts and soars through the building lyrics then dips to a restrained contralto for climatic lines, like "I am so, so, so,..lost," which gets more deliciously guttural with each "so." Hints of reverb in the production space add a subtle, creepy effect to the gospel tunes. It could almost be too crafted, but with Marshall's spellbinding voice pulling at the tempo, the album feels so organic that you can't imagine it any other way. - Rachel Dovey Standout Tracks: "Swamp Song", "Bring Yourself Back" “Lisa Marshall is absolutely one of the most gifted R&B and Soul singers, an excellent musician and Songwriter..”- Adolf ‘gorhand’ Goriup- Folkworld, Germany
