Irish performer Lisa Lambe releases Dust and Sand video taken from forthcoming album 'Juniper' out Friday, April 3.
Lisa Lambe described by the Irish Times as the finest singer and actor of her generation, is now poised to attract a global audience with her forthcoming album, Juniper. Lisa says she imagined Juniper as a colorful story of nature, time and place: “The title track was sparked by a boldly gnarled juniper tree I spotted on an isolated bog road.”
Juniper is Lisa’s sophomore album, written in the west of Ireland and recorded at the remote Attica Studios in County Donegal. The entire Juniper album was recorded live in one room, Lambe says, and she describes the eleven-song collection as “a love letter to nature”. Her songwriting, although inspired by the Irish landscape and surroundings, is also thoroughly universal, modern and international.
Lisa is a frequent guest on national radio and television in Ireland and has appeared at world-renowned venues as lead singer with Celtic Woman. As a solo artist, Lisa has performed globally including Celtic Connections Scotland, Glastonbury UK as well as The Irish Arts Centres in London, Paris and New York. In 2018, Broadway World debuted her cover of the Guess Who classic, 'These Eyes.'
Juniper is an especially meaningful project for Lisa. “The purpose of the project was to capture the lightning of making music,” she says.
“I’m a live-in-the-moment artist and whether in the studio or onstage, I have to ground myself in the moment, feel what I’m receiving from the songwriting, and give something back to serve the song.
With this recording,” - she says: “there was a huge desire in me to find the tribe of musicians and listeners to go on a completely new journey with me. All the elements came together, and the result is a vast landscape of colour and sound not tied to one nationality or genre but instead to the notion of a tribe.”
Lisa will play Sugar Club in Dublin on Thursday September 10.
