‘A Light From The Other Side’ by Lisa Richards

Australian singer-songwriter, Lisa Richards released her new album, A Light From The Other Side, on 17th April – a record that looks introspectively into Lisa’s life and experiences.

Normally when you listen to new music, you can instantly place it into a genre-defining box, but this simply isn’t the case with Lisa Richards. It’s not unusual for an artist to straddle a couple of styles but Lisa’s music takes on a number of influences from all over the musical world including, folk, blues and jazz, plus elements from many more. Lisa admits this saying: ‘My music is difficult to pigeonhole stylistically, my voice is hard to pin down, it demands attention and yet it is unruly. My songs don’t quite fit anywhere’ yet this is the beauty of what Lisa is doing.

Personally, if you’re listening to an artist that you can’t even begin to categorise, you know that they must be good as they are pushing boundaries and defying the conventions in music that have already been laid down.

The talented singer-songwriter was born and raised in North Queensland, Australia, where her mother, who had previously worked as a concert pianist, had moved to for Lisa’s father. Her childhood was unstable to say the least, which eventually led to her flying the nest in search of a career in music in the city.

M’GOO blend genres, exploring a range of moods in single ‘I Didn’t Want To Hear You Say “I’m Leaving”‘

Jazz trained band M’GOO blend various genres to access a range of moods in their latest single ‘I Didn’t Want To Hear You Say “I’m Leaving”‘. Like all their songs, the single is inspired by a true story. It was inspired by Glen Washington’s story from Snap Judgement. The poetic nature of the track combined with an infectious melody leaves you wanting more.

Vocalist and composer Mike Meighu has a unique composing method whereby he finds inspiring stories, poetry and philosophical material, which he then uses to score the music. The rest of the band then re-write the music from a fresh perspective, creating an improvisational live style. This alongside strong elements of jazz, rock and pop forms a unique style that appeals to a large audience.

Listen to ‘I Didn’t Want To Hear You Say “I’m Leaving”’ here:

 

The single is taken from M’GOO’s upcoming concept album ‘LOVE AND ALL THAT _ _ _ _’ due to be released with discussion podcasts and video art. With this single release the group have created a mood board exploring the track.
