about

'Lost Again', Lisa's acclaimed second album, was produced by Gabriel Minnikin, a former member of acclaimed Canadian alt-country band, The Guthries. Recorded at Airtight in Manchester with some wonderful musicians, Lost Again took her acoustic sound to another level with beautiful lush arrangements and an increase in instrumentation. Ranging from the breezy radio-friendly title track, the aching ballad When You Go, the Drake tinged Dragonfly, to the epic Universe, the album further showcased her depth of songwriting talent and made this album a truly compelling listen.

Lost Again received even more airplay on Bob Harris's Radio 2 show and on radio stations throughout Europe and the US. It also received great print reviews and made the Top 50 Americana albums of the year at Americana UK. Her track Dragonfly was played on Bob Harris's special 'Best of British' show which featured the best British songwriters. Lisa was was played alongside The Stones, The Beatles, The Kinks, Radiohead, Coldplay, Nick Drake, Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny and many others. The title track was also playlisted on BBC Radio Norfolk. The acclaimed 'Dragonfly' was also featured in an independent film in LA. The album closes with her live heartfelt version of Neal Casal's 'Fell on Hard Times' which also received many plays on Bob Harris.

'a lovely album..I'm a big fan of Lost Again'
Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

‘Lost Again’ really delivers on the promise shown on her debut disc – memorable songs, strong vocals and sweet melodies combine to make an excellent album.'
Fish Records

'one of the most captivating records of its kind that I've received for review this year...while Lost Again is manifestly a continuation in terms of Lisa's deeply felt yet recognisably smart songwriting, and its basic idiom remains exquisite melodic country-tinged acoustic pop, the album is definitely and consciously more "produced", with significantly increased instrumentation and beautiful (and imaginative) arrangements to envelop Lisa's trademark stunning voice and acoustic guitar and complement her reflective, heartfelt and emotionally-charged (without being overwrought) lyrics...the end result is heart-meltingly good...Play this rapturously good CD just once, and you'll definitely want to get lost again (and again, and again…) in its charms, I just know it!'
Netrhythms

'a well accomplished selection of songs which are personal, direct and easily accessible. Strong, distinct melodies give the tracks a sense of immediacy and are topped off by Lisa’s great voice and some excellent musical backing.'
Americana UK

'my pick of the crop has to be Lost Again - Lisa Redford. I personally would put Lisa in the same bracket as country/folk singers Iris Dement and Nanci Griffith. I will be very disappointed if we do not get to hear more from this lady with the super voice. And her talents do not just stop there, all tracks on this album, except for one, were written by Lisa Redford. If you like good music, this one is well worth a listen.'
Roy Heap, Pedal Steel Magazine

'a wonderful cd'
East Magazine

'this album is even better..an alt country-tinged set with zippy melodies and excellent playing all topped with Lisa's effortlessly pure vocals.'
The Event Magazine ****

'it is that voice which is her crowning glory and sets her apart from her contemporaries. In a market awash with quality female singer/songwriters Lisa Redford is up there with the best.'
Classic Rock Society

'Lisa knows how to write songs that linger on longer than the length of the CD..she writes great melodies and lovely refrains.'
MazzMusikaS, Belgium

'it's wonderful but I expected that of course' Harmony Ridge Music, California, USA

'there is no doubting the quality of writing and performance'
Proper Music Distribution

'a terrific record that I love a lot!'
Alt Country Cooking, The Netherlands

'We love the Cd and have been playing it on the programs.' Folkscene, USA

'seems to confirm the good things I said about the debut album so it will be a pleasure to play them in my radio show here...the songs are even easier on the ear than it's predecessor!'
Radio Voce Spazio, Italy

Track Name: Lost Again
Lost Again

Always had to run
Trying to be someone
That I was not for far too long
Never saw a change
Everyday the same
And I was waiting for the pain to fade

Wish those clouds were lifting now
Then I wouldn’t feel so down

And for so long now I was only waiting for those feelings
to return to me again
And for so long now I was only hoping for a sign
but now it’s here I find - I’m Lost Again

Was happy just to be
Giving up on dreams
Just wasting time haunting same old streets
I had it figured out
What life was all about
But I was scared to feel something

Wish those clouds were lifting now
And the sun was bursting out

And for so long now I was only waiting for those feelings
to return to me again
And for so long now I was only hoping for a sign
but now it’s here I find - I’m Lost Again

Now I’m living for each day
Got no need to ever hide myself away

And for so long now I was only waiting for those feelings
to return to me again
And for so long now I was only hoping for a sign
but now it’s here I find - I’m Lost Again
I'm Lost Again

Track Name: Dragonfly
Never travelled down this way before
Flying through the dusty streets
Could be on the road to anywhere
Cares are gone, the mind’s at peace

And my friends are here beside me now
Sweet contentment’s deep inside
We don’t even need to say a word
Just remember this for life

See the dragonfly in the twilight sky, music fills the air
And the heat it lingers on
And the children play as the daylight fades, clouds are all in gold
Watch the colours til they’re gone

And the only thing that stops me feeling lonely
Is when I think about those days
And the only thing that stops me feeling lonely
Is when I think about those days

And if you ever get this feeling
Don’t let it pass you by
It’s like a stirring that’s inside your soul
A simple moment lost in time

See the dragonfly in the twilight sky, music fills the air
In my heart it will remain
We were singing loud, under golden cloud, mind’s without a care
Not just another day

And the only thing that stops me feeling lonely
Is when I think about those days
And the only thing that stops me feeling lonely
Is when I think about those days

Those days, when I think about those days
Those days, when I think about those days

Track Name: Wildfire
There’s no turning back, just letting go
Say goodbye to this life we know
Turn out the lights, turn the key
Lets chase the moon before it slips away

No doubting in our minds
No more running blind

Out of control like a Wildfire burning
We’re out on our own tonight
Nobody knows, it’s like the world’s stopped turning
Cos tonight it’s in our eyes - Wildfire

Follow the stars, there's cloud overhead
Take more than rain to stop us now
I catch my breath, I cling onto you
Feel so afraid but it feels so good

No doubting in our minds
We’re gonna touch the sky

Out of control like a Wildfire burning
We’re out on our own tonight
Nobody knows it’s like the world’s stopped turning
Cos tonight it’s in our eyes - Wildfire
Tonight it's in our eyes - Wildfire

There's no doubting in our minds
We’re gonna touch the sky

We’re out of control like a wildfire burning
We’re out on our own tonight
Nobody knows, it’s like the world’s stopped turning
Cos tonight it’s in our eyes, tonight it's in our eyes

Out of control like a wildfire burning
We’re out on our own tonight
Nobody knows, it’s like the world’s stopped turning
Cos tonight it’s in our eyes, tonight it’s in my eyes, tonight it’s in your eyes - Wildfire
Oh Wildfire

Track Name: Universe
Pictures from a different time
Lie around me in the failing light
And turn my thoughts to you and me again
Memories are fading now
They’re drifting out of sight
To bring them back to me you know I’d search

The Universe, the universe

Close my eyes and feel you near
Something tells me you’re still here
The feeling never seems to last for long
No more alone, so safe with you
You took away my fear
To bring you back to me you know I’d search

The Universe, the universe

I never want to say goodbye
I never meant to leave your side

Turn around and walk away
Try and fight another day
I can’t believe that you could leave me here
If I could see your face again
If there was a way
To bring you back to me you know I’d search

Across the Universe, the universe....

© Lisa Redford 2005
Track Name: Love You Anyway
Love You Anyway

Caught in a moment
Frozen in time
And I don’t remember
How we said goodbye
And I know you’re leaving
It’s hurting inside
So much unspoken
Feelings I hide

So if you think that there is something here
Let’s not throw it away
There’s just so much I want to say

And even though it’s not the right time
I’m still going out of my mind
And though I know I can’t make you stay
I love you anyway

If I never met you
Would I be the same
There’s just something about you
It won’t go away

So if you think that there is something here
Let’s not throw it away
There’s just so much I need to say

And even though it’s not the right time
I’m still going out of my mind
And though I know I can’t make you stay
I love you anyway

There’s just so much that we could do
Not gonna stop thinking of you
Just let me know

And even though it’s not the right time
I’m still going out of my mind
And though I know I can’t make you stay
I love you anyway...

Track Name: When You Go
When You Go

Never felt the sunshine til you took my hand
Never had such feelings now I understand
You’re chasing your dreams but I’m losing mine
Cos you’re taking flight, into the night, without goodbye

And when you go, you leave me lonely
How will I know, you love me only
It’s funny how, we don’t say what we feel
Til it’s too late, it’s too late

It is all so easy when you’re here with me
All the fears are gone til the time you leave
Getting tired of promises that you can’t keep
Now you’re far away, nothing more to say or do

And when you go, you leave me lonely
How will I know, you love me only
It’s funny how we don’t say what we feel
Til it’s too late, it’s too late

It’s too late, it’s too late
It’s too late, it’s too late

© Lisa Redford 2005
Track Name: You Will Know
You Will Know

Like the sweetest dream
When you came to me that night
Ran a thousand miles
Just to see you smiling bright

And when you feel the way I do, you’ll know, you will know

Now I close my eyes
Try to memorise those words
That you said to me
Now a memory that hurts

And when you feel a love so true, you’ll know, you will know

And when love comes around
You find you won’t come down
Cos when your world is torn in two, you’ll know, you will know

Hard to face the day
Now you’re far away from me
Love had robbed me blind
You broke this heart of me I see
And when you lose the love you knew, you’ll know, you will know

You will know...
Track Name: The Way it Goes
The way it goes

We had some good times and some bad times too
You know I lost it all when I lost you
Wasting too much of my time away
I can’t stand another day

You know the way it goes sometimes
You know the way it goes sometimes

And now I feel so very far from home
Losing my way cos I miss you so
I’ve got to get away, it calls my name
Cos I know it won’t ever be the same

You know the way it goes
You know the way it goes

I’ve got to get away, it’s just no good
You know I’d change it all if I could
Now you know how many tears I’ve cried
There’s nothing more I have to hide
And you know
And You know

You know the way it goes sometimes
You know I'll try to get by this time
You know the way it goes sometimes
You know the way it goes sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes...

Track Name: Just Getting By
Just Getting By

Sometimes you find it hard
Takes all your strength in just getting by
I feel I’m drifting far
You’re all I see no matter what I do

Seems like a lifetime ago
Already there’s so much I want to tell you
And how my life has changed
But still you’re here no matter where I go

You’re smiling through the tears
Think you know your life was precious
Wish we had our time again
You’re all I see no matter what I do

Sometimes you find it hard
Takes all your strength in just getting by

Track Name: Why
Why

Always working
Always searching
Never finding what you’re looking for
Always waiting
Always hoping
Never minding, but you’re wanting more

And you never seem to have the time
And I’m losing what I thought was mine
And they always have to be so kind oh why, oh why

Always fighting
Always smiling
Now I’m tired of the radio
Always learning
Always hurting
Deep inside but you won’t let it show

And it always has to take so long
And you never feel like you belong
And you always have to be so strong oh why

Always faking
Time is wasting
Bodies’ aching, oh why

And you never seem to have the time
And I’m losing what I thought was mine
And they always have to be so kind oh why

Oh oh oh oh oh...oh why

Oh Why

Track Name: Mountain Hideaway
Mountain Hideaway

My mountain hideaway
Is where I hold you close
Don’t mind the summer rain that’s falling
My mountain hideaway
Is where I see you most
And my November heart is melting

And the people I meet don’t mean a thing
You’re the only one that I will see
Want to hold this night so it will never end
Oh Oh Oh Oh

My mountain hideaway
Is where the feelings grow
And now I’m frightened by the way I feel
My mountain hideaway
Is where I’ll always know
That there is just no getting over you

And the things that I do won’t mean a thing
Oh oh you’re the only one I need
Oh oh I want to hold these thoughts forever
Oh Oh Oh Oh

My mountain hideaway
