Lisa Marshall— Soul De Femme, 2019
Lisa Marshall from Texas stuffs her retro-soul-folk-funk blues with the surprisingly witty feminist texts. We wish we heard more songs of protest and freedom with such a perfect and even sophisticated musical accompaniment.-Yep Magazine
Lisa is keeping the women of soul/R&B/Blues alive and well in this modern age with her covers, and more so in her own original work. Having seen her multiple times around Austin when I'm on work gigs in the area, and ALL of her music on my playlists - she's a multiple daily dose of funky love and feeling. If you haven't seen her play the "Blonde" in a live setting, you need to fly to Austin when she is playing, such a GIANT voice in such a tiny body.-Allen Erickson, Fan
Favorite track: High ON Her Perch.
The genre is properly named...reaches in touches the heart and grabs the soul! - Clint Hancock, Fan
As long as I have your music, everything is great. J You lift me up on many a Saturday when I am at work hating my life. Lol! I just plug in your tunes and I am in another dimension. - Paula Lobb, Fan

Simple is the first album I did completely on my own. I recorded the entire album on GarageBand. There are no physical copies left of this EP. Pay what you want to download. Look for vinyl on this one coming soon! 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
