Lisa Addeo – Listen To This

Miami Beach, Florida based jazz pianist, vocalist and composer Lisa Addeo has earned her own place in the smooth jazz genre with verve. Her debut album In A Heartbeat (1997) was a tribute to Frank Sinatra. Her next album Hotel California (2000) presented mostly own compositions. Further albums are Grand Piano (2006), Musical Inspirations (2006), Spirit of the Holidays (2006), Live at the Kerr (2006), I Just Can’t Stop Loving You (2010), Whispering Souls (2012), and this year Listen To This.

Lisa feels at home in different genres like jazz pop, New Age, and the Great American Songbook. Smooth Jazz is her newest field of activity. Lisa Addeo performs on her new album piano, Rhodes, and Synths. She is also lead vocalist on various songs.

She is supported by Nils (guitars, synths, pads, Rhodes, drum programming), who also co-wrote with Lisa most of the tunes and was also involved in the mixing and producing process. Adam Hawley (guitars, programming, aux keys, percussion) participated in the same way in the production of the second piece. Further musicians are Darryl Williams, Mel Brown, Tony Saunders (bass), Tony Moore, Eric Valentine, Gorden Campbell, Derrick “Dmar” Martin (drums), Oliver C. Brown (percussion), Jeff Ryan, Steve Cole (sax), Johnny Britt and the JB Horns (horns), Dov and The Lovestar Strings (strings).
