With the release of her latest CD, Somebody’s Baby, Long-Island-based Lisa Matassa takes yet another huge step forward in her career as a successful independent artist. The album reflects her musical journey through a collection of songs that are both personal and dynamic. Three of the tunes on the EP were co-written by Lisa herself (“Wouldn’t You Like to Know,” Girl with a Rock ’n Roll Heart,” “Learning as You Grow”) coupled with three covers made famous by other artists (Dolly Parton, Bryan Adams, Nat King Cole). The album’s lead-off track is Lisa’s third single, “Somebody’s Baby,” which is also included as a bonus music video.
This album is Lisa’s third country-focused recording project, following last year’s Me Time and Sunrise Highway released in early 2012. Her single, “Me Time,” shot to number one on CMT’s video charts shortly after its release, and her version of the revered standard, “The Christmas Song,” also hit number one last December and remained top five on CMT’s holiday chart during the entire Christmas season. With such unprecedented success out of the box, Lisa hopes that “Somebody’s Baby” will prove equally popular with country music fans. The song’s music video was directed by Traci Goudie, whose work includes videos for Hunter Hayes, Diamond Rio, Merle Haggard, Patty Loveless, Patty Griffin and more. She’s been featured on Billboard’s The 615 Blog - http://goo.gl/aDVgq and Yahoo! Country - http://goo.gl/Nypn6 .
She is now considered Long Island’s first bona fide country artist and has opened shows for Dierks Bentley, Leann Rimes, Thompson Square, Eric Church , Ronnie Dunn, and Sold-out dates with Lee Brice. Lisa will make her national TV debut on the Marie Osmond show in March of 2013. Check out Lisa Mattassa on NEW!
