We’ve been working on a music video for Stand Up. You may have seen us last Saturday at the Boulder Farmer’s Market with lots of little kids and their parents. The video will be posted on the Healthy Child, Healthy World Web site (www.healthychild.org) and all download sales from that song will go to the organization for 6 months. It should be done by early June so stay tuned!

In the meantime, the first video from the live show is posted on the site. Enjoy!

New Interview-Rock Wired

Posted on: May 11th, 2010 by lisabell Click to Comment

“I Sing the Body Eclectic” says Rock Wired magazine. Nice review of the album and a Q&A with me that gives a behind the scenes look at the making of the Dancing on the Moon. Here is an excerpt: “Albums that boast an eclectic mix of music are nothing new to me but in the case of LISA BELL’s latest release ‘DANCING ON THE MOON’, I must say that the Colorado-based singer-songwriter gives eclecticism a whole new meaning. Her glorious sound is hard to put a finger on. Is it jazz? Adult-Contemporary? Roots music with jazz chords? After one meditative listen, a word like “genre” goes out the window and you find yourself getting lost in the lush, plush soundscape brought to you by an A424 tuning that the music of ‘DANCING ON THE MOON’ is set to. The title track is built around a playful jazzy bounce as refreshing as a glass of chardonnay at a pool party on a breezy summer night. BELL’s rich voice melts like butter over the arrangement. The meditative yet assertive ‘NO TIME’ is a most curious kiss off; a country ballad with jazz chords. Or is it a jazz ballad with a twang? MOVE ON is a tale of finding the strength to move forward yet not quite being able to forget the past. The upbeat number is accentuated by a plucky acoustic guitar and maracas.

Let me know what you think!

There has been a lot of talk after the concert about the storyteller aspect of the show. Good and bad-comes with the territory! We attempted to do much more than just a music show, and took a big risk doing it. My hope was that it would add an element of art to the show, as well as weave a theme throughout. It was a way of explaining the RA music tuning and letting you in behind the scenes to some of the mysteries surrounding the 424 tuning.

But let me know what you think. We may never have an opportunity to have the storyteller aspect of the show again (did I hear a collective sigh of relief?), but I want the feedback regardless. For anyone who attended the show and is paying attention to the blog, please comment below. Thanks!! Lisa
