Album Notes
Visit my new myspace webpage:

You'll find two new songs from the upcoming album.

***This CD just became part of the $5 bin***

Simpson began playing guitar with friends while in high school. Within a few short months she began writing songs and playing for friends and at open mics. It has been almost ten years since she first started writing songs. Her style and songwriting has been influenced by many artists from different styles, many of whom she covers from time to time: Simon and Garfunkel, Nirvana, Joni Mitchell, The Pixies, Natalie Merchant, etc. Simpson has developed her own style in the tradition of the 20th century singer/songwriter. As an album, "Steeping Orion," features many new songs, along with a few that have been waiting in the wings for the right moment.

Since the release of her first album, "Taken Lightly," in 1998, Simpson has been busy writing, recording, and finishing a Masters degree. Besides playing solo, she has recently opened for such diverse acts as Art Alexakis of Everclear, and folk singer Dan Maher, who hosts "Inland Folk" on Northwest Public Radio.

"I had a great time listening to this album...the instrumental work is pretty stark... the lyrics are awfully sophisticated." -Dan Maher, Inland Folk, Northwest Public Radio

"Simpson is a strong singer...Steeping Orion is a good listen." -Colin Clary, Seven Days

"Simpson Blends her influences well. A classically trained singer, she accompanies her rich, grit-and-silk vocals with uncomplicated but evocative folksy guitar work and thoughtful lyrics." -Heather Frye, Art and Entertainment Editor, Lewiston Tribune

"Awesome folk-guitar and strong, gorgeous voice." -Erika Cunningham, Community News

Check out Lisa on the Daily Grind Divas CD here at CDbaby. Also check out my friend Noah Beck's first solo album "Long Time Coming". Noah plays lead guitar on Grainmills.

Funkified Levis
CD is great, but what ever happened to the bass player? Not only could he lay down a fat beat, but in live performances, his eyes made me forget all my troubles. Ryan Hansen where are you?

Touching & Honest
I had the pleasure of seeing Lisa live a few years ago and bought both her CDs immediately. I still listen to both. Her music is honest and clever with deep folk roots. I can't wait for her next CD.

sophomore album as excellent as the frosh
lisa simpson has again stolen my heart. steeping orion has left me entranced and awaiting more from this extremely talented folk singer.


You will NOT be disappointed w/ STEEPING ORION
Lisa has an amazing voice and is a very talented songwriter! I have both of her cds and LOVE them! When i listen to STEEPING ORION, it feels like Lisa is right in my living room singing to me ~ the cd has a real coffee house, small club feel to it. Anyone who likes Ani and other female singer/songwriters will NOT be disappointed with STEEPING ORION.

I've been listening to the MP3 clips on this album, reminscing of the times I heard many of these songs in person back in Moscow, ID.
As always, the voice and the soul of the sound is beautiful and cuts right to the heart of things.
True folk musician- the album shows this.


Engrossing lyrics, beautiful music
This is another wonderful cd by Lisa Simpson. Her voice and musical talent are complete musings, she puts me in a place of creative and self-realization. This cd has a wonderful 'live' feel, it's as if she is sitting next to you strumming away.
