Who We Are

Wishlist
Summary

about music when she was a little child. During her school

time she already played trumpet and violin and also sang in jazz-bands and

gospel choirs. While Lisa Doby studied on the Wake Forest University, she

joined the a-capella-band Nishati. Thereby her amazing voice was finally

discovered and she started to perform solo. Her huge talent got about very fast

and her audiences grew continually. During a semester in France she finally made

the breakthrough: In the Lionel Hampton Jazz Club in Paris she was discovered by

Patricia Kaas who engaged her as her background singer immediately. Although

Lisa could gather inestimable experiences, she always preferred to compose and

sing her own songs, so that she assembled her own band after an extensive world

tour.

Her sensational debut Free 2 Be, which has appeared in

2006 at Jazzhaus Records and which sold particularly well in France, already

showed her multi-faceted skills. The single That’s Love, an extraction

from her new album, showed in autumn 2008, what one can expect from her new CD

Who We Are. The single was played by various radio stations – partially

in rotation.

Now, by the end of April 2009, the time has come: The album

Who We Are is ready and it fully meets one’s expectations. On the disc

one will find 11 songs, as well as a video on which LISA is performing "Feeling

Good" of Nina Simone.

The opening track Unconditionally already points out

where the trip will be going: The Rhythm & Blues and Soul is fortified by a

well-arranged pinch of rock and complements very well with LISA’s dynamic voice.

This is continued strictly with the second song Who We Are (the title

song of the album) and is underlined with the matching "Outro" again. With the

exceptionally nice song That’s Love a short breather is granted to the

listener, before (s)he must automatically hum along with That Kind Of Day,

which inevitably brings the spring into one’s living room. This feeling

continues with the soulful song Everytime It Rains, before Lisa

demonstrates another side of her and presents the feel-good song Be With You

in a jazzy and swinging arrangement. In Just Because the soft side of the

American takes effect. Hold On is performed in an acoustic version,

before LISA is paying homage to her present home in Alsace with Sankt Amarin.

The many-faceted album is finally rounded with the marvellous French ballad

Plus Fort Que Moi and the already mentioned live video.
