Child of God
'Definitely not mainstream pop.' - Universal Music Anything but mainstream, yet decidedly accessible music for the masses. 'Child of God' is a focusing of energies for Lisa M. Robbin. Still a very eccletic mix, with instrumental and vocal pieces, 'Child of God' takes the best of 'Facets' and augments it. Call it Christian Jazz, if you will. 'Facets was a more vanilla, middle of the road project. It was designed to show versatility and diversity in my music.' Lisa says. 'Child of God was a total re-work of what I knew music to be. This project very nearly is a 180 from where I thought I'd be today.' Indeed. Lisa's second release was originally slated to be 'Lunchtime at Winston's' - a collection of tunes written and arranged during lunch at a local bar. Instead, after a year of major life-changing events, Lisa has turned her eyes to God. 'He's the only reason I'm still alive, still playing, still touching lives,' she reflects. 'After facing living on the streets with a small child, you start to think about what really matters.' Ironically, it was through music that she found her salvation. The title cut from 'Child of God' is a personal exposition of her relationship with God, and how each of us has been born with that connection to Him. The tracks on this CD are nearly all originals, including a re-release of 'He's a King' from 'Facets'. 'The song recieved so much positive feedback, I thought it needed to better glorify God.' Another rendition of a returning favorite, 'Indian Summer' is now set with the entire MetaSeasons project. With a bevy of new tunes, Lisa continues to show her talent and musical diversity, while honing her message to her audience. 'I love to perform a variety of styles,' says Lisa. 'and it's hard to do anything differently when recording. I want people to enjoy EVERY track on my album. That's why there's swing, jazz, instrumentals and vocals. I couldn't live without that kind of variety. I don't think most people could.' A jack-of-all-trades type, Lisa writes, speaks and performs around the country, when she's not spending time with her family. Each event is tailor made and contains new music specifically for that event. To add Lisa to your upcoming special event, email her for more information. You'll even get a personal response.
