These songs are sweet time travel. At the height of her career, Lisa’s voice is clear and strong as a cobalt blue, Rocky Mountain sky on an autumn morning. Rich with influences such as Peter Kater, Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell, and the Andrews Sisters, Light Years takes the listener on a sometimes humorous, sometimes wistful but always lyrical journey of life. Superb arrangements and back-up by musicians such as guitarist Frank Gayer Martin (All the Pretty Horses), jazz trumpeter Tim Fox (the Intervention Band), and Grammy Award nominee singer-songwriter Penny Nichols, allow Lisa’s melodies to soar. Light Years will have you humming along at first listen.
"You made my day! Thank you SO much for your CD. It is magnificent! Your talent and heartfelt lyrics and music totally amaze me."
Sue Kennen, Wappinger Falls, NY
"I'm enjoying your CD! Your lyrics reflect your life in a way that many women will be able to relate to. And your musical support is diverse and engaging. I smiled at your SOS and your son's "Bye Mom". "Your Touch" raises a vital issue for women: Will I lose my soul? Of course! I forgot to include appreciation for the most obvious: your lovely voice and Spirit conveyed through your voice! Blessings"

"I love your new LIGHT YEARS CD. You have a beautiful voice and I
really like your songs. It made me think of Cherry Street and our playing at your house. “For Stephen” almost made my cry, especially the "’bye Mom". I heard my own son’s voice in it."
Anne Heuwaldh Cook, childhood neighbor, Kansas City, MO
"John and I love your album. We’ve not memorized the words but we hum along wherever we go in the car. I have some favorites; although each one captures my heart. I love “Islands in Time”. I laugh out loud every time I hear "Mercury in Retrograde" and weep a bit at the tribute to your Dad. Also, your Mom. We go back to watching Moms hang out their laundry "all afternoon." I’m getting a clothes line this summer."
Barbara Palmer, Glenwood Springs, CO
