Wine night!

It’s been a little while since my last All Things Norfolk article as it has been a very busy time. Anything But Easy - the first single from my brand new EP “Edge of Love” - was released on 22nd February and I’ve been working really hard to promote it, doing radio and magazine interviews. It has been wonderful to receive such a lovely response and so much airplay including many BBC Shows and various stations across the world. I was also recently interviewed by Sam Day on BBC Radio Norfolk and chose my Norfolk Anthems (favourite songs!) as well as talked about the single. It is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and also at my Bandcamp page: https://lisaredford.bandcamp.com Huge thanks to All Things Norfolk who has already shared the…

I am really excited that the PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign for my next release is already at 86%! A huge thank you to all those of you who have pledged or shared the project. As an independent artist it really means a lot. Recording for the new EP has just finished here in Norwich and it has been a really productive and exciting process. As mentioned, I am working with the super talented musician and producer José McGill – band-leader of the award-winning local band Vagaband – who has created some beautiful arrangements and played an array of instruments. There is also a host of other local musicians who have been involved. Noel Dashwood – from Norwich based folk trio Alden Patterson and Dashwood - has contributed his wonderful dobro and…

I am really excited to have launched my first ever PledgeMusic crowdfunding project for a brand new release. I have already started recording material with local band The Vagaband - recent recipients of The Music Award at the 2018 Norfolk Arts Awards - who I also recorded my last EP with. There are some very special rewards and exclusives on offer including two beloved guitars and some rare signed memorabilia from my back catalogue. You will also be helping Dogs Trust as I spend a lot of time walking rescue dogs in the area and their companionship is truly special. Please watch the video and check out the rewards on offer - I would so appreciate any shares on social media. Here is the PledgeMusic project link and video:

Norfolk Day will be upon us this Friday, 27th July and I am really excited to share this beautiful new music video from my incredibly talented student Breeze Redwine. Especially filmed for Norfolk Day and showcasing the stunning countryside of the county, it has already had a wonderful response and been selected as the official song for the occasion. The track is "Trust" an original song written by myself and Breeze which is also the title track of her debut EP. Everyone involved in the video is from Norfolk, from the musicians to the video director-producer David McKenna, and the project was sponsored by Rushall-based Vincent’s Garage. Some of the county’s most iconic landmarks feature in the video including including Thurne in the Norfolk Broads, Happisburgh Light House, Cromer Pier…

I’m really excited to share my new original song “I Just Can’t Forget” the first track from my second Whispering Bob TV Under The Apple Tree session. Curated by Bob Harris himself, Under the Apple Tree sessions are intimate performances recorded live in the studio of Whispering Bob Harris, which just happens to be situated under an apple tree. It is always special catching up with Bob Harris and his son Miles Hyerscough-Harris - who beautifully records and films the sessions - and it was also a treat to be reunited with brilliant pedal steel player Alan Cook who played on my second album “Lost Again”

Over the last couple of months I’ve played some lovely gigs and radio sessions. I had a wonderful night performing at Norwich Waterfront Studio opening for country singer songwriter Sarah Darling. It was exciting to perform two brand new songs and nice to have the brilliant Noel Dashwood - from renowned local folk trio Alden, Patterson and Dashwood - joining me with his exceptional dobro and harmony vocals. We also earned some great reviews from local publications: “With dobro player Noel by her side, she opened up the evening with a great array of original songs which she has written over her substantial career as a musician. It was easy to be drawn in by her elegant and classy deliverance.” Huge thanks to the EDP Newspaper for this great mention.

It’s already been a busy and creative year. In my music writer role I had an amazing and inspiring time at the AmericanaFestUK in London which I was covering for iSing Magazine, a digital magazine for vocalists and excellent resource for singers, singing teachers and those in the music industry. Organised by the AMA-UK, AmericanaFestUK celebrates the flourishing Americana music scene with a daytime conference, an evening of artist showcases and an illustrious Awards ceremony. As an Americana artist and member of The AMA-UK myself, it is so great that the association represents and supports American roots music and artists in the UK. The conference drew major artists including Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Mary Gauthier and Squeeze’s Chris Difford. The Stellar awards show at the historic Hackney…

I had a great time playing two successive Americana nights in Norwich last week. I performed at the historic Guildhall in the city centre for Grapevine for Music, who host regular gigs showcasing quality folk, Americana and country artists. Also performing were superb Norfolk singer-songwriter Jake Morrell, now based in London and fresh from recording in Nashville, and also SJ and the flying Pigs from Cambridge, who create a lovely dreamy sound with acoustic guitar, banjo and fiddle.

I had a lovely time performing at the inaugural Deepdale Festival last month. In a beautiful North Norfolk setting, and with glorious weather, the weekend showcased all the wonderful local talent the area has to offer. There was a friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and it was a lot of fun having drummer Terry Anderson from The Mojo Preachers join me impromptu during my set. Congratulations to Jason Borthwick and Chris Haycock for a successful festival, here’s to next year!
