London-based soul and jazz singer Lisabel has released her new gem, song titled ‘A Work of Art’ lifted off her upcoming album of the same name, A Work of Art (5 May 2020). So far, Lisabel has received support from the likes of Le Future Wave, comeherefloyd, Talk About Pop Music, as well as airplay from Pheonix FM’s Bob Simpson. Lisabel has performed at popular London venues including The Half Moon, Pizza Express Jazz Club (Soho and Chelsea), and O2 Academy Islington amongst others.
The songstress was born and raised in Italy, before moving to London with her family. Lisabel took an interest in musical performance from a young age and joined a local choir to fuel this passion. Years later, Lisabel has completed her studies at BIMM London and Berklee College of Music, covering music theory in finer detail. The songstress does not like to be influenced by other artist’s sounds and styles. Her sound is highly individualistic, the closest associations to aspects of her sound are artists like Solange, Aretha Franklin, and Erykah Badu.
Lisabel adds, “A Work of Art is the first song I have ever written lyrics for that I was incredibly proud of and in love with. The song was written together with producer and pianist Nikola Kovačević, he specifically wrote the verses’ chords and the arrangement and I wrote the chorus’ chords and the melody/lyrics.”
“It was a beautiful and organic process, getting ideas together that served this song about pure love. I wrote the song after falling in love with someone who to me represented a pure and loving soul that I trusted and wanted to celebrate.”
