About Me
Described by legendary BBC DJ Bob Harris as "one of our finest singer/songwriters" Lisa is an Award winning versatile female artist from the UK who divides her time between the US and UK having gained a US publishing deal. Influenced by artists such as Ryan Adams, Josh Rouse, First Aid Kit, Mindy Smith, Shawn Colvin, Alison Krauss and Hem, her music has been described as delicate acoustic rootsy Americana with heartfelt lyrics, gorgeous melodies and stunning vocals.

She has released three acclaimed albums 'Slipstream', 'Lost Again' and 'Clouds with Silver' that have received glowing press and airplay across the world including Bob Harris's BBC Radio 2 shows. Her track 'Dragonfly' was played on his 'Best of British' special which featured the Best British songwriters and has also been featured in an independent film. Her version of Neal Casal's 'Fell on Hard Times' has also been one Bob's most played tracks. She has toured the UK and Europe and has a distribution deal for her albums with the UK's biggest independent distributors, Proper.

This year she released her second EP ‘Another Place and Time’ worldwide through Proper Music Distribution. It has received airplay on many Americana and country music shows including Bob Harris’s Radio 2 show and Baylen Leonard’s ‘The Front Porch’ on Amazing Radio. She has also performed with, and opened for, many respected international artists within the worlds of country, folk and Americana. She has also played lots of festivals and recorded sessions for Radio 2's Bob Harris.

Having been based in the US as well as the UK, Lisa also writes music columns for various magazines and has written songs for others. This summer her song ‘Courage’ performed by Breeze Redwine won Best Original Song at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood.

Her latest single is her second Christmas single, the acoustic ‘When Christmas Comes Around’ a heartfelt song about spending time with those you love during the festive period.

Among the many artists she has played shows with include Chuck Prophet, Glenn Tilbrook, Devon Sproule, Gina Villalobos, Jess Klein, Laura Veirs, Jesse Sykes, Eve Selis, The Handsome Family, Eileen Rose, The Arlenes, Boo Hewerdine, Peter Mulvey, Jeff Black, Kevin Welch, Corb Lund, Mike Silver and Hot Club of Cowtown.

“she brings an honest song writing style and beautiful vocal styling to every one of her songs...In a sea of smart female singer-songwriters, Lisa Redford is an admiral.’' 
Maverick Magazine****

“Elegant and tender folk, country and Americana.” Songwriting Magazine 

“Distinguished by classy songwriting and a heartfelt delivery..she’s a class act.”

"classy and assured. Lisa is one to watch for sure."Properganda Magazine
