"... I am featuring two songs from the CD: Please
Bless Me, and the title tune, Just the Way My Mama Made Me.
Thank you so much for the great songs."
||"Lisa Stevens' songs reflect her
own personal truths, wisdom and loving perspective on life. Her voice and
songwriting are the embodiment of her own honesty, clarity and depth.
There are songs on "Just The Way My Mama Made Me" that will
touch listeners in very personal ways. Plus, Lisa is simply a joy to
listen to. Though she is totally unique in her musical style, the
contemporary folk scene can use a few more like her."
|"I find her singing very well
placed - sweet with an edge of hardship that always tinges my favorite
voices. It's very expressive.... The clarity of
the arrangements is also laudable -- simple and right. I think it's
lovely and moving -- and of the two, the second will hold focus longer.
I'll be spending more time with it, I know."
Scott Ainsle, blues musician extraordinaire and instructor at the Swannanoa Gathering
||"Did you ever get caught off
By something so intensely compelling,
Something that breaks your heart
And mends your spirit at the same time?
Well, I have.
Whenever I listen to this music.
It's hard to fight back tears,
Tears of recognition
Of the pain and joy.
Music doesn't normally affect me this way.
My heart rises near the surface,
And I am thinking with my heart the rest of the week.
It is extraordinary."
