ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lisle was born the son of a preacher and a school teacher. He was raised in the bosom of the southern USA... Savannah, GA to be exact. He cut his teeth early as a singer and musician; intent on spreading his thoughts and feelings to a larger, surrounding world. He has taken his experiences, his trials, tribulations and successes; and recorded them in the form of rock and roll songs to find out if there are others out there who are thinking and feeling the same thing.

Lisle has played with a number of groups. The Vital Signs were a bar cover band that helped him to make a little side money during high school and keep from having to flip burgers at the local McDonalds. Upon his arrival in Boston in 1985, he founded a group named The Promise for which he received enough notoriety to keep pressing for more. In 1989, he moved to Los Angeles to try his luck at procuring the ubiquitous “record deal” and found himself in a city mired in managers, agents and A&R reps who really didn’t get what making great music was all about. In 1991, The Promise died an uneventful death... yet was re-born as the hard rock outfit formerly known as HEAD.

HEAD also provided many promising avenues for success, but eventually fell upon the deaf ears of the corporate machine. Their Major Label debut CD was supplanted with a CD of Ozzy cover tunes and their record deal soon vaporized as well. What can you say when the deal-makers are more interested in positive cash flow than releasing good music? Such is the privilege and subsequent downfall of the “Major Label.”

Moving on... Lisle developed his many talents working on a CDROM game called “Welcome To The Future” (circa 1994) which brought a million dollar paycheck. In short order, however; the cash was quickly squandered by an irresponsible business associate and fortunately, Lisle found himself out of the video game business and back on the right track, writing thoughtful music for an enlightened audience.

Lisle is now the singer of a truly great rock band. He plays with some of LA’s finest musicians and recently has released a CD of his songs from the last 10 years entitled “California Miles.” A quick inspection should provide a most original sound and engaging lyrical content for the discerning listener. Combining influences from Pink Floyd to Peter Gabriel to U2; Lisle has composed a collection of works through personal experience that should both convey thoughts and capture emotions that most of us as human beings on planet Earth should find easily familiar.

Relax yourself for a trip down “California Miles.”

Awesome, creative, professional sound, meaningful lyrics, great voice
We have really enjoyed this CD by Lisle Engle and his band. Even better in person, someone should put them on Jay Leno for exposure - they are SO much better than most other groups Jay has on! Lisle, you ROCK!
