Following the release of her latest EP ‘Mind of Mine’ and her shows opening for US stars Cam & Phil Vassar last month, one of the most exciting voices in the UK’s homegrown country/Americana scene Lisa Wright has revealed the video for lead single ‘Tennessee’. Check out the video below:
‘Tennessee’ – co-written by Wright with Kaity Rae and described by CelebMix as “a standout song that has put Lisa on the map as a real star of the [country] genre”; with Ben Earle from The Shires commenting “this is such a great song, I’m hooked” – was inspired by her trip to the US in late 2017, reflecting the notorious ups and downs of the music industry and the search for purpose in life. Lisa Wright is is due to support US star Eric Paslay on his forthcoming UK dates in Glasgow (6th July) & Liverpool (7th July); and the EP is out now to stream/download on Spotify / Apple Music / Amazon.
ABOUT LISA WRIGHT:
At first glance; Lisa Wright is a 5ft, blonde, Essex girl who seemingly charms her way into the audiences’ affection by cracking jokes and telling stories but then she begins to play… and the room goes silent.
Nominated for ‘Best Country/Folk Act’ by the Unsigned Music Awards and described as ‘Kacey Musgraves meets Patty Griffin meets John Mayer’, it’s clear from your first listen that, to Lisa Wright, lyrics mean everything. Inside Nashville called Wright’s songwriting: “intelligent, elegant and beyond her years”. With great support from BBC Introducing, the young singer-songwriter was announced as one of their emerging ‘Sound of 2017’ artists and subsequently was handpicked by BBC Radio 6Music to perform at Latitude Festival. With over 70,000 streams on Spotify to date; previous singles playlisted on radio including Chris Country & Amazing Radio; and supporting artists such as; Cam, Ward Thomas, Phil Vassar and Emily Barker, it’s clear to see why Lisa has often been described as “the UK’s best kept secret”.
But, it doesn’t stop there…
After she impressed the transatlantic audience with her songwriting, Lisa was championed by the Nashville Songwriters Association who announced her as their ‘One to Watch’, and was recently invited to join the fantastic Song Suffragette alumni in Nashville. Latest EP ‘Mind of Mine’ is out now.
