Simple is the first album I did completely on my own. I recorded the entire album on GarageBand. There no physical copies left of this EP. Pay what you want to download. Look for vinyl on this one! I experimented picking up different instruments, microphones, etc. (ie: The song Simple is 1 dynamic mic stuck in the middle of the drum set, & yes that's me playing them) I had wonderful musicians and friends step in on some of the songs. Eric Manegold plays drums on Bring Yourself Back, and Sooner or Later. Kevin Fallon plays Lead Guitar solo's on Simple and High On Her Perch. Scotty X plays Bass on Swamp Song & Bring Yourself Back. Here's some of the write ups it received:SEATTLE SOUND MAGAZINE Dec. ‘08 " Lisa Marshall's first solo album carries a heavy debt to the Motown era; backup singers croon to Marshall's soaring vocals, while tambourines and bass riffs stroke and jingle each piece to perfection. Like late Tina Turner, the swinging melody dips and soars with lyrics about defeat and triumph, and defeat again. It's the contrast of it all that gets you. Like the groove that underpins lines like "What makes a heart break so slow?" Or Marshall's surprising compositions; her voice belts and soars through the building lyrics then dips to a restrained contralto for climatic lines, like "I am so, so, so,..lost," which gets more deliciously guttural with each "so." Hints of reverb in the production space add a subtle, creepy effect to the gospel tunes. It could almost be too crafted, but with Marshall's spellbinding voice pulling at the tempo, the album feels so organic that you can't imagine it any other way. - Rachel Dovey Standout Tracks: "Swamp Song", "Bring Yourself Back" “Lisa Marshall is absolutely one of the most gifted R&B and Soul singers, an excellent musician and Songwriter..”- Adolf ‘gorhand’ Goriup- Folkworld, Germany
