UK/US based Lisa Redford ("one of our finest singer/songwriters" Bob Harris) returns with a beautiful and heartfelt new EP 'Reminders'. Taking the listener on a warm intimate musical journey, 'Reminders' is a combination of acoustic and band songs with Lisa playing her acoustic guitar against a background of bass, piano, strings and drums played by some of New York City's finest musicians. The release continues her strong melodic sensibility and gift for well-crafted songs.

'Reminders' was recorded in Brooklyn, NYC and produced by Jeff Hill a respected and incredibly talented musician who has also played with the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Neal Casal and Erin McKeown. As well as playing electric and double bass, Jeff contributes keyboards, cello and backing vocals. All tracks also feature keyboardist Didi Gutman, composer and arranger for the Grammy Award-nominated Brazilian Girls. It has already received great reviews and airplay on Bob Harris's BBC Radio 2 show.

Praise for ‘Reminders’

‘She’s got such fantastic warmth to her music..a wonderful artist’ Bob Harris

“I was taken aback at the maturity in both her vocals and songwriting…The production quality is superlative, the songs exceptionally well-written, especially the opening “Reminders” with the intuitive lyrics. “Dreaming In Crowds” is a gently flowing harmonic beauty with a kind of Carole King feel, without in any way sounding like the legendary singer-songwriter. Here’s a young lady who’s blossomed into a mighty fine singer-songwriter deserving of the widest possible recognition. I think it’s time that she took the plunge and recorded a full album with similar quality songs and production as this … it would be a world-beater.” Maverick Magazine ****

‘UK-based singer/songwriter Lisa Redford continues to treat her fans to more of her lyrical mastery with her latest EP, “Reminders.” The riveting title track shows the continued maturation of Lisa’s already distinct style, while “Summer on the L” offers a delightful sense of fun.’ NY Examiner

‘a delightful ep that really captures the essence of the songs.’ Fatea Magazine

‘Lisa Redford has a lovely, warm voice that her self-written songs about personal life experiences can effortlessly carry. Think in terms of vocal style similar to singers like Tift Merritt and Shawn Colvin.’ Roots Time, Belgium

‘A nice voice and a quality-written track, I love it! Seshny Blog

“Reminders” is an EP with personal songs that can really speak to you. The lyrics are relatable and the arrangements are clever and never get in the way of the story or the message. They actually enrich the songs and make them better as a whole. In conclusion we can say that Lisa Redford presents us with another very good release that showcases her talent as a very special singer/songwriter with a very own and unique sound. The crossover between her British heritage and her American influences helps to accentuate her uniqueness in her vocals and songwriting. To make a long story short, “Reminders” is a very fine new release by Lisa Redford’ Inner Ear Media, The Netherlands

‘A beatiful vocal on this poignant track by Lisa showing strong lyrical content accompanied by a haunting melody.’ Ralph’s Life Music Blog

‘well crafted lyrics and Redford’s crystal clear vocals.’ Quirky NY Chick

‘Sensational and spellbinding’ Alive with Clive, NY

Track Name: Reminders
I wish that you could see
How lonely life has been
Here without you
Here without you

I do my best to change
But it's just not the same
What I'm used to
What I'm used to

And all that I can see are Reminders
Of a life that used to be
Far behind us

Never tire of the melody
But I need to set it free
Now it's over
Now it's over

And all that I can see are Reminders
Of a life that used to be
Far behind us
The things that we don't see
They remind us of the pain we feel
And a life that used to be
Stays inside us

All that I can see, all that I can see
All that I can see

And all that I can see are Reminders
Of a life that used to be
Far behind us
The things that we don't see
They remind us of the pain we feel
And a life that used to be

Stays inside us
Track Name: Summer on the L
Outside your window a parade
You spend the whole time in the shade
It’s summer and you’re free
So far away but you’re home
You never felt so afraid
Or ever felt so awake

It’s summer on the L
Strangers become lovers when it’s
Summer on the L
Brand new friends then strangers again

You keep the loneliness at bay
By running round and round all day
Memories return from another world
That you left behind, just distract the mind
You’ll do your best to survive
At last you know you’re alive

It’s summer on the L
Strangers become lovers when it’s
Summer on the L
Brand new friends then strangers again
It’s summer on the L
You can just start over again

Just wipe those tired heavy eves
From endless nights, left you sleep deprived
This is a choice that you made and you could turn around any day

It’s summer on the L
Strangers become lovers when it’s
Summer on the L
Brand new friends then strangers again
It’s summer on the L
Strangers become lovers
It’s summer on the L
You can just start over again
Over again, over again…
Track Name: Dreaming in Crowds
You put your keys on the table and huddle up by the stove
The radio is your company, you never felt so alone
So feed the cats and just go to bed
On borrowed sheets and borrowed time
Hoping tomorrow you’ll find a way
Heaven knows you’ve tried
But you feel so tired

Will you always be chasing a dream
Where nobody knows how you really feel
Forever lost but forever free
Will you ever know, where you should go
Forever dreaming in crowds
More than you know is allowed
Waiting and hoping for life to turn around

Another unknown platform, no destination in mind
No matter where you are going to there’s something you can’t find
No matter how you try

Will you always be chasing a dream
Where nobody knows how you really feel
Forever lost but forever free
Will you ever know where you should go
Forever dreaming in crowds
More than you know is allowed
Waiting and hoping for life to turn around

You wonder if it’s your destiny to be lost
You ran away now you have the time to count the cost

Will you always be chasing a dream
Where nobody knows how you really feel
Forever lost but forever free
Will you ever know where you should go
Forever dreaming in crowds
More than you know is allowed
Waiting and hoping for life to turn around

You put your keys on the table and huddle up by the stove
The radio is your company, you never felt so alone.

Track Name: So Many Words
‘So Many Words’

There are so many words I’d like to say to you
Missed so many moments and you never knew
Now those times they mean nothing when your heart’s in pain
I feel it in my bones I’ll never be the same
And I feel so far from where you are and where I should be now
I know I changed, the heart can stray and roam free
And I’m sorry

There were so many times I never showed I cared
Guess that I was just foolish, thinking you’d still be here
There were so many feelings, far beyond control
And so many reasons, more than you will know
And I feel so lost, none to trust
It haunts me to this day
Though I’m stronger now, I still feel down and lonely
And I’m sorry

Am I different now? am I different now?
Oh I’m no different now, I’m no different now

There are so many words I’ll never say to you
Missed so many moments and you never know
Now those times they mean nothing when your world has changed
I feel it in my soul I’ll never be, I’ll never be the same.
