You're My Relief

FRESH: ‘You’re My Relief’ – Lisabel

Lisabel releases her soulful new single “You’re My Relief”.

by Christopher Smith

Singer-songwriter Lisabel is back with a new single providing grooves for the rest of the summer and more…Her new track “You’re My Relief” is a bossa-nova synth infused ode to love and the happiness that it brings. The song starts off with a pizzicato strumming of piano’s strings that opens up to a light hearted bossa-nova verse with fretless bass slides. The unexpected comes with a chorus that’s characterised by a change in time signature and groove with Lisabel’s powerful vocals fully committed in her emotions and storytelling throughout.

A Moog’s solo and a huge vocal breakdown accompanied by a Dave Smith’s prophet synth pad are yet again another surprising element that leaves you wanting more. Just when things seem to get quieter, a piano interlude kicks in opening up the song once again with a strong neo-soul drum groove, synth bass and muted vocals that underline a sense of what “You’re My Relief” actually is all about; that sense of lightness you feel when you’re in love.

“You’re My Relief” was acutally recorded at Konk Studios in early 2018. It was written by Lisabel and produced by Brother Sun Sister Moon Productions (Nikola Kovačević) and Lisabel Biscaldi. Lisabel is a singer songwriter based in London. She has been singing and performing from a young age, studying vocals and piano before moving to London to further her musical studies. She obtained a music degree in performance graduating from BIMM London in 2016.

Since then Lisabel performed in renowned venues such as the O2 Academy Islington, 606 Jazz club, Novikov and The Half Moon with both her music and as a guest vocalist for musical collectives. In the past few years Lisabel has been working on the composition, recording and production of her upcoming debut album which will be released in 2019.

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
