You’ve been waiting For something that you’ll never find again In everything you do, you know it’s up to you to make it work, this time So much sorrow, you’ve set your sights too high once again When you were standing tall, you know you’re bound to fall and that’s a fact You’ve been holding On for too long Lost all reason in your mind All the feelings Lose their meaning Don’t you think now that it’s time You come back down again You come back down again They’ve been saying, ‘don’t you think it’s time that you’ve moved on’ But when you look inside, an emptiness is all that’s left behind You’ve been holding On for too long Lost all reason in your mind All the feelings Lose their meaning Don’t you think now that it’s time You come back down again You come back down again Come back down again To where you were before You’ll be fine and then Find what you’re looking for Oh oh oh You’ve been holding On for too long Lost all reason in your mind All the feelings Lose their meaning Don’t you think now that it’s time You come back down again You come back down again You come back down again You come back down again… © Lisa Redford 2008

NY Song Been walking these streets, been heading downtown Been full of regrets, too late for them now And though I may say I’m alright, from time to time Still hiding the pain I’ve been feeling inside I’m here on my own Alone in the night Know that I’ve grown And I’ll be alright I’ll never know why it went wrong I’ll just keep singing my new york song Stopping at Steinway, meeting my friends Too late to go back home, to make amends I know that I’ll miss you sometimes, in my mind I’m trying to get lost in this perfect sky I’m here on my own Alone in the night Know that I’ve grown And I’ll be alright Will never know why things went wrong I’ll just keep singing my new york song I know that I changed Go back if I could Words on the line were misunderstood Finding a place where I belong For now I’m singing my new york song Doesn’t matter where I go Doesn’t matter what I do And though I may say I’m alright from time to time Still hiding the pain I’ve been feeling inside I’m here on my own Alone in the night Know that I’ve grown And I’ll be alright Will never know why things went wrong I’ll just keep singing my new york song I know that I changed Go back if I could Words on the line were misunderstood Finding a place where I belong For now I’m singing my new york song © Lisa Redford 2008

Call Me 03:04
Call Me Do you wish there are things that you could change? Couldn’t find it in your heart to feel the same The light is fading now behind the trees It’s when a loneliness drifts over me Are you on your own tonight then call me Are you on your own tonight then call me Are you on your own tonight then call me Then call me I know it doesn’t mean that we’re in love But just your touch tonight would be enough Don’t wanna talk about the past And all the things that never last Are you on your own tonight then call me Are you on your own tonight then call me Are you on your own tonight then call me Then call me tonight Then call me.tonight.. © Lisa Redford 2008

Makes Your Heart Sing Is there someone that you long for Now that someone isn’t me Got to try and stop believing If it wasn’t meant to be And I’m trying so very hard to be so very strong Now I’m not the one who makes your heart sing Is there someone that you’re holding When the night falls, keeps you warm Is there something that you’re hiding Deep inside you, keeps you safe from harm And I know it’s been so long but time don’t mean a thing When you’ve lost that one who makes your heart sing Do you listen to the same shows that we used to on the radio When you’re driving down the same streets, all the places we used to go And I hope I’ll be alright Now that love has gone Then I’ll find the one who makes me heart sing And I wish you all the love in the world, for all time And I’ll miss all of those days more than I did when you were mine © Lisa Redford 2008

When You Come Home You followed a path You travelled the world Losing sight of who you were You did as you please Although you were ‘owned’ Dismissing those who cared the most But you forgot that luck can turn You forgot all those you hurt When you come home what will you do Now that your friends are gone there’s noone you’re talking to And when you cry noone will hear Now there’s nowhere to turn and you’re left standing here When you come home, when you come home When you come home, when you come home Consumed in a world That just didn’t care Illusions fade and dreams can disappear And there were so many you left behind Now it’s too late to try and put it right You forgot that looks can fade You forgot the plans we made When you come home what will you do Now that your friends are gone there’s noone you’re talking to And when you cry noone will hear Now there’s nowhere to turn and you’re left standing here When you come home, when you come home When you come home, when you come home You forgot about your peace of mind Now there’s nothing left, nothing more you can hide behind When you come home You forgot that luck can turn You forgot all those you hurt When you come home what will you do Now that your friends are gone there’s noone you’re talking to And when you cry noone will hear Now there’s nowhere to turn and you’re left standing here When you come home, when you come home When you come home, when you come home © Lisa Redford 2008

Live Your Life You hold onto something Though you know it’s not right Before you know it, forever’s flown by And scared of the future And all that it brings You tiptoe through life and lose everything But nothing is as it seems Don’t ever stop chasing your dreams Live your life Don’t ever choose to hide Don’t let nothing stand in your way But take your time All that you long to find Could be out there and be yours someday Promises broken You take thing to heart You want to move on but don’t know how to start Failure is nothing new You can’t control all that happens to you And don’t you care We all know life’s unfair Sometimes, but just let it go And don’t you cry Or let your life pass by Too fast, it’s all you have Live your life Don’t ever choose to hide Don’t let nothing stand in your way And don’t you care We all know life’s unfair Sometimes but just let it go © Lisa Redford 2008

Here Alone 03:35
Here Alone It’s a dark and lonely sound That I hear, when noone’s around It’s a world I left behind It’s the peace I cannot find It’s the words I couldn’t say Can’t believe it turned this way There’s a light you’ll never see Now you don’t have the time for me I know it all takes time To let go of what was mine And now it seems to me I’ll always be, here alone Here alone It’s the fear inside of me Takes my soul and never leaves There’s a wound that doesn’t heal From a touch I cannot feel I know it all takes time To let go of what was mine And now it seems to me I’ll always be, here alone I’ll always be, here alone Here alone Here alone © Lisa Redford 2008

The Boy Who… He ain’t nobody special He ain’t noone you’d know He ain’t even around here now Playing his one man show But I just can’t forget him No matter how hard I try They say that time is a healer but It passes slowly by Passes slowly by He’s just the boy who broke my heart Just the one who tore it apart Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life He’s the just the boy I see at night When I lay down and close my eyes Just the boy who broke my Boy who broke my heart Every night is the same dream And I can still see his face Lost in the eyes that were searching mine A love I can’t replace It’s a love I can’t replace He’s just the boy who broke my heart Just the one who tore it apart Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life He’s the just the boy I see at night When I lay down and close my eyes Just the boy who broke my Boy who broke my heart Wake up every morning to the sound of his voice oh And though I’ll never see him again, it’s like I have no choice He’s just the boy who broke my heart Just the one who tore it apart Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life He’s the just the one I see every night When I lay down and close my eyes Just the boy who broke my Boy who broke my heart Oh oh oh oh He ain’t nobody special He ain’t noone you’d know He ain’t even around here now Playing his one man show © Lisa Redford 2008

New Years Day You walk on winter’s frozen ground The trees are bare, a storm surrounds Thrown away all that you had See the frost on mistletoe, The burning embers watch them go Believe that good comes out of bad And don’t you feel sad And chase the demons from your mind You can leave them all behind You don’t have to feel this way Just believe you will be fine Take my hand on New Years Day and say – you’re gonna change And so another year has passed These hollow feelings will not last Give them up now you should try Pain is something you don’t need Lose yourself in errant dreams Close the wounds and leave to dry Cos you can’t turn back time And chase the demons from your mind You can leave them all behind You don’t have to feel this way Just believe you will be fine Take my hand on New Years Day and say – you’re gonna change Pull away the layers, see what lies within You can try and reinvent, be somebody new Don’t waste your time, on answers you can’t find…. And chase the demons from your mind You can leave them all behind You don’t have to feel this way Just believe you will be fine Take my hand on New Years Day and say It’s New Years Day just say – you’re gonna change You’re gonna change You’re gonna change You’re gonna change © Lisa Redford 2008

Time to Grow (free) 01:48
Time to Grow She said, I need time to grow And this, this is all I know I’ve been racing through the alleys Racing through the fields in my mind This is all that I have done today, but it’s enough She said, life isn’t all I planned Sometimes life is out of your hands We’re all racing through the alleys Racing through the fields in our mind This is all that we can do today, but it’s enough But it’s enough… © Lisa Redford 2008

about

Lisa Redford's third studio album CLOUDS WITH SILVER is a glorious and heartfelt follow up to the critically acclaimed LOST AGAIN (2005).

Featuring eleven finely crafted self-written songs CLOUDS WITH SILVER takes Lisa’s blend of exquisitely melodic acoustic music to another level. With most tracks recorded live, the album is infused with a real intimacy showcasing Lisa’s soulful and powerful voice and heartfelt lyrics. From album opener, the upbeat radio friendly "Come Back Down", to the sweeping uplifting “Live Your Life”, through to the plaintive yearning ballads “The Boy Who…” and "Makes Your Heart Sing", the album is full of standout tracks. Other highlights include the dreamy "Call Me" and "NY Song" which also display her dynamic and evocative voice and immense gift for melodic hooks. The album closes with live tracks “New Years Day” and “Time to Grow”. Recorded live in the studio with just her voice and acoustic guitar, these two tracks totally capture the raw heartfelt emotion of Lisa's live performance.

Recorded mostly in New York City at Monkeyboy Studios, the album is co-produced with respected producer and multi-instrumentalist Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright, Rufus Wainwright, Teddy Thompson) who also adds some subtle sonic dimensions on bass and keyboards. The acoustic songs are also enriched by some truly beautiful string arrangements. “Makes Your Heart Sing” and “Here Alone” feature strings by one of Nashville’s most highly regarded producers David Henry (Josh Rouse, Alison Krauss, REM) and New York based violinist Claudia Chopek (Ryan Adams, HEM) created the wonderful lilting arrangements on “NY Song” and “Live Your Life”. More of New York’s most outstanding musicians guest on some of the tracks. Superb drummer Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright) adds his talent to the two full band tracks and the excellent guitarist Jim Campilongo (in Norah Jones’s The Little Willies) contributes his trademark Telecaster sound to the upbeat Americana track “When You Come Home”.

Like Lisa’s previous albums, Clouds with Silver is available on iTunes and distributed through Proper Distribution who feel it is ‘a very strong and confident piece of work that deserves to be heard’. It earned even more glowing press reviews, airplay on BBC Radio 2 and other radio shows and been the most successful release to date.

Press for Clouds with Silver

'A beautiful album..it really is' Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

'Excellent new album...a real step up in sound for Lisa, the quality and profile of the guests are guaranteed to raise her profile both here and the US, and this is an album that will bring her to an even wider audience.' Fish Records.

'a very strong and confident piece of work that deserves to be heard.' Proper Music Distribution

‘a sensational breeze of fresh air. The lyrical and vocal content of all 11 of Lisa’s self-penned songs, provide a longing for more and more accomplished singer-songwriters like herself to come out of the woodwork…a fantastic insight into a world of love, loss and changes’ Maverick Magazine ****

She has really developed as both a songwriter and performer has our Redford, the London-based songwriter who has surpassed all her previous work with this beautiful record...There is a warmth and welcoming vibe to Redford’s music that really is difficult to resist. Given that a lot of these songs seem to be about failed love or unquenchable longing, it’s an acute sense of melody and delivery that stop this becoming just another rummage around a broken heart. Musicianship is top class with strings being a welcome and unobtrusive addition. Her voice – sweet, sultry, sensational at times – becomes an old friend after a few plays and when at its best really does find a way of piercing the old emotional ducts. Bob Harris, the patron saint of female singer-songwriters, has Redford right up there at the top of the pile. It’s easy to see why with "Clouds With Silver" potentially being the record that will catapult her to new heights. Yeah, liked this one, mighty fine indeed.

Americana UK – 8 out of 10

This is classy and assured. Lisa is one to watch for sure.’
Properganda magazine

Clouds with Silver is Redford's best album so far. Her pure, pretty voice has developed a deeper resonance and character and her attractive melodies and thoughful lyrics have become more consistent and finer crafted.
Country Music People Magazine

tellingly it's the soaring yet intimate vocals of Redford that shine throughout…She adds smouldering depth to fine self-penned material such as 'NY Song', 'Live Your Life', 'The Boy Who...' and 'Time to Grow'. Her grasp of texture, mood and fearlessness in giving it her all, I suspect, comes with the realisation that she actually possesses a voice able to do her musical vision justice.’

R2 Rock n Reel Magazine ****

'Lisa Redford is a breath of fresh air. Hers is a pure and quite lovely voice which delivers some sweet Americana-tinged songs from the heart, all done to tasteful acoustic arrangements including some nice fingerstyle guitar. '

Manchester Evening News

'Lisa has already been described as, 'one of our finest singer/songwriters, by BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris and I would not argue with a Bob recommendation. This is melodic acoustic music of the finest quality; gentle, soulful and uplifting at the same time. The end result has been achieved by recording in New York City with some of the best in the business and with two albums behind her the apprenticeship is complete. She mixes delicate and melancholy with the upbeat with ease and should sit pretty either side of the pond!’
Classic Rock Society Magazine

’Redford has grown in both confidence and stature as both songwriter and singer for her best album to date.’ Fatea Magazine

'Radio 2 playlist here you come' **** The Event Magazine

‘heartfelt acoustic folk-pop gem’ Going Out Magazine, Evening News

‘an accomplished and melodic achievement’ In-Sync Magazine
