Product Notes

_*_*_*_*_ Only one rollerskate died during the making _*_*_*_*_ of That Thing In Your Hand. With effort, _*_*_*_*_ it was revived and witnessed the album's _*_*_*_*_ birth. A devoted coche indeed. * * * * * * * * 'Lisa Alice is in that small group of artists who are stupendous solo' - Kelly Nathanson, Portland Girls, 2003 *TOP 5* Lisa Alice's 'That Thing In Your Hand' CD-release party was listed in the San Francisco Bay Guardian on 'The Mix' list of the week's top 5 events (Vol. 37, No. 18). 'Lisa Alice weaves the sweetest of acoustic gal pop' - Aquarius Records, 2003 *PRIZE* Lisa Alice earned the silver prize from the Recording Academy in August 2003. At the event finals, held at the Hard Rock Cafe in San Francisco, Lisa Alice won for her demo 'Push Girl', a track from 'That Thing In Your Hand'. 'Lisa Alice seems unable to stop radiating. . . . Her percussive approach to the guitar and her poetic approach to songwriting make for great music with a curious edge' - Heather Fielding, PostHoc.com, 2000 *SOLD OUT* Lisa Alice completely SOLD OUT of her 2000 release 'Pygmalionic'. She follows this success with her 2003 release 'That Thing In Your Hand'. * * * * * * * * While other students wrote papers, Lisa Alice was recording her first song for a philosophy department seminar. After earning an A for that existential project, Lisa took her melodies to a wider audience. Though she's been singing since just a wee lass and playing piano since age five, Lisa didn't find the guitar until college. The lone girl in a college band, Lisa penned half the tunes and lent her voice to the music. Lisa started her solo career in 1998 and that same year, with those earliest of songs, earned a semifinal spot in the Lilith Fair Talent Search - and the following year, a finalist spot. Since those early years, Lisa has gone a path of her own - a path of syncopated rhythms, alternate tunings, smart lyrics and an expressive, breathy voice. Lisa has been influenced by songwriting greats Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Emily Saliers; poets Walt Whitman, Sharon Olds and Carl Phillips; the fingerwork of Bach and the drama of Beethoven; the musical Annie; fabulous band and energy extravaganza Poi Dog Pondering; dork king Neil Diamond; and the rhythms and dance of hip-hop.
