Brooklyn Singer/Songwriter Lisa Brigantino to play The Tea Lounge
Feb 1, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Award-winning singer-songwriter/composer/multi-instrumentalist and Park Slope, Brooklyn resident Lisa Brigantino will be performing one set of her original songs with special guest, her sister Lori Brigantino, at The Tea Lounge in Park Slope, Brooklyn on Saturday, February 1st, 2014 from 9pm to 10pm. Lisa is an engaging performer whose original music spanning groove, genre and topic earned her seventh place on Indie-Music’s Top 25 list of 2012 and most recently MusicPage.com’s Featured Artist of the Month for January.
Brigantino’s latest CD “Wonder Wheel” is an eclectic collection of thirteen songs ranging from Folk and Blues to Rock, Old-Time, Americana, Pop and more and was recorded and produced by Brigantino and husband Tomi Millioto in their Brooklyn studio. The album contains 13 tracks all written and performed by Brigantino with guest performances by Tomi Millioto, Lori Brigantino, Susan Haefner and Jerry Snee. With most of the instruments played by Brigantino, the arrangements show off her versatility as an artist ranging from mellow vocals and finger picked acoustic guitar to full blown rocking band arrangements with Brigantino deftly handling electric guitars, bass, keyboards and more.
“Wonder Wheel” has received international airplay and terrific reviews including a “Five Star Review” and “Pick Of The Week” from Indie Music Critic and MuzikReviews. Blog Critics says “Lisa Brigantino is what you’d call a complete musician—a superb multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. Brigantino brings to her songwriting that real sense of melody that so many putative writers lack.” KRUU-FM says “Lisa’s voice moves fluidly from style to style, earthy on the blues and rocker songs, liquid sweet on the acoustic and pop tunes.” A number of the songs from “Wonder Wheel” have had placements in film, TV and web series. She is currently recording her next CD with an anticipated release of late 2014.
A trained composer with a Master of Music in music composition and music theory from SUNY Fredonia, Brigantino also writes for film, TV and more. In addition, she performs in “The Vickie & Nickie Show!” a wacky, off-beat, musical-comedy act with her sister, Lori Brigantino, also a Park Slope, Brooklyn resident.
Brigantino was an original member of Lez Zeppelin, the world’s first all girl, Led Zeppelin tribute band and played bass, bass pedals, keys and mandolin as well as sang backing vocals. She toured internationally with the band for a number of years performing at A list venues and festivals around the world, including headlining Bonnaroo. The band’s debut CD was released in 2007 produced and recorded by the legendary Eddie Kramer. Brigantino left Lez Zeppelin in 2009 to focus on writing and performing her original material.
