Lisa Dewey | Bio/News
Lisa Dewey, San Francisco Bay Area based artist and owner of the indie label Kitchen Whore Records, began playing live shows in 1990 and has since released four full-length albums, two EP's and a book. After playing solo for a few years, she formed a band to complete her ethereal pop sound. Lisa's songs usually start out as folk songs, and then the band adds drums, bass and heavy melodic lead guitar to transform the songs into floaty pop. The band, The Lotus Life, features John Testani on drums, Paul Zimmerman on bass and Keith St. Thomas on lead
Lisa Dewey & The Lotus Life’s latest record (Lisa’s fourth), Busk (Bella Union/Kitchen Whore) was officially released in the Spring of 2004. As with the previous release, Weather Changer Girl, this new record also contains the work and assistance of the legendary Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins). Together, Lisa Dewey and Simon Raymonde have produced yet another masterpiece of female vocals over beautiful guitar melodies. It’s dreamy, multi-layered, atmospheric and gorgeous pop with favorable comparisons to the Cocteau Twins and Everything But the Girl.
Busk includes special guest performances by Jackie Perez-Gratz (Amber Asylum-Cello), Michael Steele (The Bangles-Bass) and Simon Raymonde. Mellow Day, the CD Single from the album Busk, includes two non-album tracks.
