Multi-faceted artist Lisa Marini Releases first self-produced Album Buried Town
Lisa Marini’s upcoming album, Buried Town, is a testament to the artist’s resilience, creativity, and profound storytelling. With a history that includes living on the streets at the age of 12 and being caught in a drug raid at 15, Marini’s journey towards sobriety and artistic expression is a remarkable one. Now, with the release of her self-produced album, Marini is poised to become one of the most significant voices of the next decade and beyond.
Buried Town is a 10-track album that is both ethereal and emotionally captivating. Marini’s unifying worldview ties the songs together, creating a cohesive collection that explores themes such as the search for creative energy, protecting creativity at all costs, and the distractions that come with mortality. The album’s contemplative topics are a reflection of Marini’s personal journey, and her exploration of these themes is both honest and introspective.
Half of the songs on Buried Town celebrate creative energy, while the other half explore the struggle to find one’s way back to it. Marini’s commitment to the creative process is evident in the album, as she wrote, recorded, and produced all the tracks. She also designed the artwork and visuals, adding another layer of personal expression to the project.
Marini’s upcoming album launch party at Camden’s The Green Note on April 14th is highly anticipated, and the music video for the album’s second single, One Step From Land, is set to release on March 24th. The video explores the interplay of hope and fear, bringing the conversation to life visually with contrasting colors and movement.
While Marini’s history is marked by struggle, she has explored all corners of the working world, from being a band photographer and visual artist to an independent agent running London Jazz and Blues nights, an actor/model, and even working on the Eastenders underwear stall. Her diverse background has undoubtedly influenced her music, adding depth and nuance to her storytelling.
With features on Jazz FM and BBC Scotland and performances at iconic venues such as the Jazz Café, Marini has already made a name for herself in the music industry. However, Buried Town is a testament to her talent and potential, and audiences can look forward to the release of its third single, Strange Sea, on April 7th, the full album on April 21st, and its third single, Flower Under Frost, on April 28th.
In the words of Mike Davies of Folk Radio UK, “An auspicious debut, Marini has the potential to be one of the most significant voices of the next decade and beyond.” Lisa Marini’s Buried Town is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates raw, honest storytelling and ethereal soundscapes that capture the essence of the human experience.
