Singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Ellingsen’s straightforward alt-Americana sound has a timeless quality. Combining accomplished guitar playing with clear, heartfelt vocals, Ellingsen’s music is influenced by many uniquely American styles, including rock n’ roll, blues, folk, and country. The sound is refreshingly down-to-earth, with a quality reminiscent of her musical heroes Lucinda Williams and Kathleen Edwards. Though she calls Northampton, MA her home, Ellingsen’s music has been greatly influenced by her circuitous journey to New England. Tones of her native Southern California can be heard mixed in with the flavor of New Orleans and a smidge of some Texas country.
A compilation of both old and new original songs, the upcoming Lisa Marie Ellingsen album “Nola to Noho” (released in May 19, 2017) is a tribute to the circuitous route the songwriter took as a musician. Produced by Grammy nominated producer Anand Nayak, the album was recorded at Sonelab Studios (Easthampton, MA) and mastered by Mark Alan Miller, also at Sonelab Studios. The album features Ellingsen’s originals, with Ellingsen on rhythm, lead guitar, harmonica and vocals. Boasting Anand Nayak on guitar, mandolin, and pedal steel, Paul Kochanski on bass, and Jason Smith on drums, the album also features Saera Kochanski/Wishbone Zoe (back-up vocals) and singer-songwriter Kris Delmhorst (back-up vocals and cello).
