ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Features a Delmore Brother duet, "Blues Stay Away From Me" with producer EG Kight.

"Lisa plays a mighty fine guitar but her most notable instrument is her voice; whether the song is slow or fast she has warmth, purity and strength. There’s a wide range of material here, all sung and played with a sense of fun and enjoyment. In many ways the selection reminds me of a favorite Maria Muldaur album from the 70s, just chock full of songs that seem to have been around forever, even the new ones." - John Davy, Flyin Shoes Roots Music Webzine

"Lisa is a vocalist extraordinaire at ease on every kind of style, there is such an intensity in her singing!...musically, and instrumentally this Cd is a real pleasure." - Mike (The DJ) Pennard

LISA BIALES SINGS JUST LIKE HONEY ON NEW CD DUE JUNE 5 FROM BIG SONG MUSIC,
PRODUCED BY EG KIGHT & RECORDED AT PAUL HORNSBY’S STUDIO IN MACON, GA

GUEST MUSICIANS INCLUDE EG KIGHT, PAUL HORNSBY, TOMMY TALTON, BILL STEWART AND DAVID BLACKMON

OXFORD, OH – Singer Lisa Biales (pronounced “Be-Alice”) has announced the June 5 release of her new CD, Just Like Honey, produced by EG Kight and recorded, mixed, mastered ands co-produced by the legendary Paul Hornsby (The Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels, etc.) at his Muscadine Studio in Macon, Georgia. The CD is being released on her own Big Song Music label and will be available through CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon.com. Lisa is backed on the sessions by a host of stellar musicians, including former Capricorn Records’ mainstays Tommy Talton on guitar and Bill Stewart on drums, as well as heralded fiddle/mandolin player David Blackmon (Jerry Reed, Widespread Panic, Blueground Undergrass). Both EG Kight and Paul Hornsby join in the fun, too: Hornsby plays keyboards throughout, and EG Kight not only lends her perfect harmony vocals on a number of tracks, but also joins Lisa in a beautiful duet of the Delmore Brothers classic, “Blues Stay Away from Me.”

“EG Kight’s vision for this project was to put together original songs with some of my early musical influences,” says Lisa Biales about the sessions. “In the studio, we figured out each song in the control room gathered around Paul’s mixing board. When we’d all get into the feeling of the song, someone would say, ‘That’s It!,’ and we’d all rush with excitement into the recording room and cut the tune.”

Kight’s “vision” of the album is a perfect match for Lisa Biales’ superb vocals, which - like the title track says - drip “Just Like Honey” over a wide range of rootsy musical influences, including Americana, blues, folk and old-timey music. Just Like Honey features Lisa’s sultry takes on Memphis Minnie’s “Call the Fire Wagon,” Candye Kane/Jack Tempchin’s “Gifted in the Ways of Love” and Ma Rainey’s “Yonder Come the Blues;” plus a powerful version of one of Lisa’s favorite singers – Etta James – on “Damn Your Eyes”, and another personal favorite – Bonnie Raitt – on “Give It Up.”
The CD also includes several Lisa Biales and EG Kight originals, as well as a song from Tommy Talton.

Lisa’s song, “I Believe,” was featured in the TV show, Girlfriends, on the CW Network; and a previous CD, Closet Hippie, was played extensively on Sirius XM’s “The Coffee House” channel. She also lends her voice and guitar to the soundtrack of Sarah Knight’s new documentary film, Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend, a portrait of Nicole Sherry, head grounds-keeper for the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards (one of only two women in that position in Major League Baseball). Lisa Biales makes her film debut in Academy Award-winning director Francis Ford Coppola’s new film, Twist. Inspired by the gothic horror of Edgar Allen Poe, Coppola's latest tells the tale of a burnt-out mystery writer (Val Kilmer) who gets mixed up in murder and evil in a California town. Lisa portrays a waitress named Ruth, who appears in a dream of the tortured writer, she lures (Kilmer) into a hotel for a drink while her husband (Don Novello) tinkers with a broken clock. When Lisa picks up the guitar to sing for her guest (the classic, “Big Rock Candy Mountain”), the ghost of a girl (Elle Fanning) appears and gets seduced by Lisa’s voice.

Just Like Honey
Step in and join the fun as Lisa Biales tackles rootsy musical influences in supreme fashion, making »Just Like Honey« no ordinary mashup of originals and long ago expired blues standards, but a excitement filled package of neatly executed numbers, proving her as a formidable song stylist and performer.

She is resourceful, there’s no denying that. To be absolutely fair, a large part for making this such a unique sounding record has to be credited to the band performance, which is flawless throughout the whole set. The combination of the two, the voice and the music, works miracles, feeding of each other in a creative musical symbiosis. No prisoners are taken as Lisa pulls some truly cheeky and daring moves, without having to the deal with the devastating consequences that normally follow most such manoeuvres. Her crystal pure voice copes brilliantly with the cover Memphis Minnie’s “Call The Fire Wagon”, dusting off this long forgotten blues gem with a country motivated approach. Mark that spontaneous clarinet solo giving the song that extra feathery fell. Lisa is keen on unravelling her musical influences. Neatly queued up are inspired takes on the captivating "Through the Eyes of a Child”, “Yonder Come The Blues”, Candye Kane’s “Gifted In The Ways Of Love” and the brilliant cover of soul filled Etta James’ number “Damn Your Eyes”. Still, Bonnie Raitt’s “Give It Up” is perhaps most efficient in locating the spot where Lisa’s motivation for developing her musical talent came from.

The original also make room for of exciting musical display. “Gypsy Woman Blues”, perhaps a somewhat common blues workout, eventually starts its bid in this lust spitting contest when Tommy Talton’s picks up his slide guitar to do a solo. Lisa’s rousing voice connects instantly with Tommy’s acoustic thrills on “Come To Me”. Nothing fancy here, this is 100 per cent organic, passion filled musicianship perfectly corresponding to Lisa’s vocal works. “Peaches” exploits this stimulating relationship on a jumpy country blues plain, while extra pace put through ”Watch Out Baby Don’t Cry” proves that Lisa has an abundance of aces dangling from her sleeves no matter where she turns.
