Check Out Why Lisa Palleschi's been "RELEASED". Fashiontribes LA STORY New ARTIST & CD Podcast & Blog.
Lisa Palleschi’s debut album "RELEASED" goes into "re-release" this week. Consider it a re-birth of this CD which had it’s first single, "Learning How to Love Again" was the # 1 most added A/C single in its first week.
Lisa Palleschi cut a demo in 2003 in a small Long Island studio owned by Richie Cannata, a collaborator with Billy Joel. Through the help of Steven C. Beer of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, she began traveling to New York, L.A. and Nashville to co-write and define/refine both her voice and her songs with the likes of such co-producers/co-writers as Jeff Franzel (Taylor Dayne, Clay Aiken, Shawn Colvin), Adrian Gurvitz (Sheryl Crow, Meredith Brooks, Steve Perry), Frank Filipetti (James Taylor, Carly Simon, The Color Purple) and Tom Kimmel (Joe Cocker, Linda Ronstadt, Art Garfunkel).
singer songwriter musician.. re-launching her cd
When I listened to this CD, I heard two distinct voices or themes– and I asked Lisa about it (and you can hear more in the podcast)
"I think this album has two personalities. Half the songs are really pretty ballads, love songs, and the other half are more in-your-face, rock songs."
While I think she has a beautiful voice, after a while the love songs really start to feel the same– hwoever when she cuts loose and switches the theme and "voice", she rocks and really comes across with a dynamic presentation. I would love to see this sort of thing develop more into a more fully developed presentation.. but as a first drop CD, great job!!
The 12 songs on the disc cover the gamut from post-break-up tune "New Beginning" which Palleschi states "It’s about taking risks and not being afraid to fall on your ass!") to "Lightyears Away," which talks about living in the present– being true to live in the moment: "It’s about not worrying about little stupid petty stuff, tomorrow those things will seem light years away." Loving the "Already Gone" that what goes round comes back to bite you in the butt — so apt at times whether it’s about a guy or someone just getting justice (sorry but it just fits my state of mind currently) . "Once Upon A Time," talks about the drive to actually fulfill a dream rather than allowing something to die or the "would have/could have/should have" situation. According to Lisa, she "was thinking about all the people in the world who never followed through on what they really wanted to do in life."
