Lisa/Liza- Shelter of a Song out November 20, 2020 30 Sep 2020
And they tell you all your life
'Search for that infinite sound'
When no one else is around
You hear it too
In the shelter of a song
–Lisa/Liza, "From This Shelter"
Lisa/Liza is the songwriting project of Portland, ME singer and guitarist Liza Victoria. Throughout her new album, Shelter of a Song (her third LP for Orindal), Liza affirms the value of music and songwriting in her life, providing her comfort through illness and isolation, and helping her to hold onto cherished memories through the poetry she sings. The album's eight original songs are gentle meditations on joy, pain, human relationships and the natural world that stretch out slowly like long shadows.
This morning, Brooklyn Vegan announced Shelter of a Song & premiered "From This Shelter," the album's first single & thesis statement. Brooklyn Vegan's Andrew Sacher describes the song as "a gorgeous offering of delicate, bare-bones, somber folk music. It's a quiet, minimal song, but hypnotic enough to stop you in your tracks and tune out all the many distractions of everyday life."
