Cigarettes and other dirges...

by Luisa Lopez

Soul and Country collide into an honest collage of catharsis and denial. Devistatingly beautiful and patient. Long awaited solo project...recommended if you like good damn music--"starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam"

Many thanks especially to my mother, Uncle Al, Elizabeth Fisher, Matt and Lora Igleheart, and Chris and Sherry Nowlin for contributing capital to guarantee a recording.
Thank you all who stuck around when life was the most ambiguous for me. It was love which created the content of this recording
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much Gary, Jeff, Tony, Kyle, Moe Raw, Jessica, Ben, all you wonderful musicians that spent so many long hours rehearsing with me. Pardon, if I have left anyone out in the name naming...oh and
thanks Nashville for making my journey a clich'e. It made me realize how unique as a snowflake a singer, songwriter, artist and musician really is. You provide the tools not the heart and that's o.k. It's good to keep that straight.

"Luisa Lopez grew up in Houston Texas (where they dance just as good as they walk) and was exposed to a solid dose of classic 60's & 70's Soul from her mother's record collection and a significant amount of Country & Western from the family AM radio. It is this intersection of genres where her sound thrives." Joe Bain Colvert
