Falling Water

Lisa’s debut album will be released on the 13 th June 2005, and sounds a little like ABBA. The girl that comes from Sweden has released this pop meets country meets indie and as not expected, she co-wrote the Backstreet Boys hit “Shape of my heart”!!!

Despite her not being as successful anywhere else other than her native home, she is no stranger to the music industry. She has worked with the likes of Max Martin and Jocke Berg, the singer and song writer for Swedish band Kent. She is also an accomplished musician and is able to play the drums, the piano and the guitar!

On appearance, this girl looks a little like Lucie Silvas and judging by the musical vocals, she sounds a lot like her too. Her voice is nice and mellow and can adapt to any musical state.

My one of the better tracks is “Lady Stardust”. In the video she can be seen playing with wolves. The song as a little warmth in the vocals and seems quite personal to Lisa. Her writing style on this song is aimed at a young audience I would say, the lyrics are simple and have a simple structure to them. I also love the song “Butterfly man”. You’ll have to hear it to agree or disagree but I think this is the best track on the album!

The songs on the album are a little dark especially in “Sing to me”, however her writing ability and excessive emotional quality of the tracks make up for it! The tracks are all of single release quality and the new songs still give out the essence of her original material. "Falling water" is a progression of her past 3 albums in Sweden that is simply, more of Lisa!

"Falling water" was recorded during four weeks, and the starlet has been getting comparisons to Natalie Imbruglia and Natasha Bedingfield. To be honest I should think so as she is a renowned singer and song writer.

What’s impressive about Lisa is that she’s not just any old singer. Despite her cute image and her pop sound, she’s an all round active girl. Here’s a fact for you, she’s an expert snowboarder and was once asked to play on the Swedish Olympic team!

The 25-year-old will be hoping to break through in her own right in 2005. To gain this achievement, watch her supporting Rob Thomas at Manchester Academy on the 20 th of June and at London Astoria on the 22 nd June.
