about

Acclaimed singer songwriter Lisa Redford releases her brand new EP “Edge of Love” on 10th May following the release of its first single - the radio-friendly “Anything But Easy” - which has gained airplay on many radio stations including various BBC shows, Chris Country and received rave reviews.

“Edge of Love” was produced by José McGill from award-winning group The Vagaband and the five self-written songs feature beautiful arrangements and instrumentation performed by a host of the finest musicians; pedal steel player Alan Cook (My Darling Clementine, Chris Hillman of The Byrds), Noel Dashwood of folk trio Alden, Patterson and Dashwood, guitarist Mark Howes - nominated in the British Blues Awards - and award-winning cellist Ivan McCready (The Pretenders, Blur, John Cale, George Michael) with drums and mastering by Mikey Shaw at The Crunch - Recording Studio, near Norwich.

“Edge of Love” opens with the instantly memorable and melodic single. The heartfelt title track, with its haunting cello and piano, follows. “Let Go” is an infectious Americana tinged band track. The moving “I Just Can’t Forget” showcases a country soul influence, while the delicate bittersweet acoustic ballad “Alone Tonight”, with its subtle sonic layers and textures, closes the EP.

The release blends Lisa’s folk, Americana and country influences with a strong melodic pop sensibility. “I always write from the heart and these songs are no exception. I’m drawn to songs that have a sadness lyrically but the music is melodious. The combination of the two makes it feel bittersweet.” says Lisa. “I’m so proud of the new songs from “Edge of Love” and can’t wait to share them.”

Track Name: Anything But Easy
Take my hand, don’t let it go
In your eyes, all I need to know
I just don’t understand what made you change your mind

I hold you close, feel you pull away
Under a spell, too hard to break
I wish I had the strength to say goodbye this time

And I know that I’ve been here before
Always left wanting more

Loving you, is anything but easy
Loving you..ooh ooh
Loving you, is anything but easy
And I know, I know that it’s so hard - to let go

All the plans I thought we’d made
Still inside, the words I meant to say
I’ll never know how you could let this slip away

Whatever made you have a change of heart
Was so good at the start

Loving you, is anything but easy
Loving you..ooh ooh
Loving you, is anything but easy
And I know, I know that it’s so hard - to let go

I never thought that I would feel this strong, was I so wrong to fall?
How something oh so good could hurt so bad, we could’ve had it all

Loving you, is anything but easy
Loving you..ooh ooh
Loving you, is anything but easy
And I know, I know that it’s so hard
And I know, I know that it’s so hard to let go
Let go
Let go
Let go
Track Name: The Edge of Love
I want to believe that this is real
How do I confront all I fear?
Unable to help the way I feel
When I know that you are near

But I don’t know how I should be
Never showing all sides of me
All my ghosts of the past are all I see
Feels so strong
And now I’m on -
The Edge of Love
The Edge of love

Been safer to keep my self control
Now it’s my fragile heart you hold
Always afraid to give my all
This time I let myself fall

But I don’t know how I should be
Never showing all sides of me
The hold of the past won’t set me free
Been so long
And now I’m on -
The Edge of Love
The Edge of love

I hesitate to let you in
But I love the warmth of skin on skin
I’m not sure how this will end
But I know
I’m letting go
The Edge of Love
The Edge of Love
The Edge of Love
The Edge of Love

Words and music Lisa Redford
Track Name: Let Go
Getting late - wanna call you
So much to say, I’ve missed you

But I know it’s too late
Gotta let go, let go
All alone - Such a shame
But I know, I know

You did me wrong
Now I’m moving on - without you
Wasting time
Wondering why - just won’t do
Now I know It’s too late - gotta let go

Was it a mistake - to want you?
Thought it was my fate - to love you

But I know it’s too late
Gotta let go, let go
Now I’ve grown - Such a shame
But I know, I know

You did me wrong
Now I’m moving on - without you
Wasting time
Wondering why - just won’t do
Now I know
It’s too late - gotta let go, let go
Now I’ve now
It’s too late - gotta let go

You always played a part
While my heart was true
Something I’d always known
You almost broke me
But time has told me I’m stronger on my own

You did me wrong
Now I’m moving on - without you
Wasting time
Wondering why it won’t do
Now I know
It’s too late - gotta let go, let go
And I’ve grown. It’s too late - gotta let go, let go

Time has got me thinking
That too long you’ve been bringing me down
All this time for thinking
Now that you’re not hanging around
Now I know. That it’s time - to let g
Track Name: I Just Can't Forget
I’ve been holding onto memories, so tightly I won’t let them go
Words and pictures they surround me and I’m lying here alone

Thinking of the tender moments ever since the night we met
All the times you won’t remember, I just can’t forget

I’ve been staring out the window
Watching time pass me by
See the blackbird in the oak tree
Makes me wish I could fly

Leaving all the pain behind me
And the hurtful things you said
All those words you won’t remember, I just can't forget

Guess you don’t recall
The meaning of it all and what we used to feel
Now it seems to me, you will always be
With me all the time ooh ooh ooh ooh

I’ve been going to the places, that we walked all of the time
Though for you they’re growing distant
They stay closer in my mind
But I hope you will be happy
Moving on without regret
All those times you won’t remember I just can’t forget
All the things you won’t remember
I just can’t forget

Words and music Lisa Redford
Track Name: Alone Tonight
You don’t want to be alone tonight
You remembered how it felt so right - so do I
So many times I wished you’d call again
Now you’re here, don’t want this night to end - you know why

I don’t want to be alone
A sweeter love I’ve never known
Though we’re not meant to be
We don’t want to feel - alone tonight

It’s been so long since you were close to me
Feels the same, the way it used to be - before a change
But in my mind you would still feel the same
When you leave I won’t stand in your way - hurt again

Sometimes I let myself believe
You’ve been also missing me
Know we’re not meant to be
We don’t want to feel - alone tonight

All the lines I rehearse
Still I ended up getting hurt
Know that I should really walk away
Tired of all the games you’ve played - again and again

We don’t want to feel alone
A sweeter love I’ve never known
Though we’re not meant to be
We don’t want to be
Know we’re not meant to be
We don’t want to feel - alone tonight
Ooh ooh ooh
