Product Description

Review

Here is an amazing new talent who has already had recognition from BBC Radio 2 and so she's on the right road to success. She's only 21 and so has got yonks of time to enjoy any deserved success. She has a voice that has to be heard and songs of a mark that will get her there - oh and what a guitar style too. The guy that deserves a big slap on the back for bringing Stainton to the fore is BBC 6 Music DJ and musician in his own right, Tom Robinson. He heard her debut single, Red (opening track on this album) and was caught in her headlights. She could become the ultimate UK singer/songwriter talent of the past ten years. Her songs have a certain majesty and youthful freshness with injections of pop, roots and rock too. Fresh as a daisy in summer, Lisbee Stainton will be a big hit with a cross over audience and this album is a stunner! MH --Classic Rock Society Magazine

New London Based Singer-songwriter who has a way with an eight-string guitar! At 21 Lisbee Stainton already has the ear of Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, and a song destined for United Nations Peace Day next year. Her appeal is clear and simple: slowly revolving rhythms, wistful English melancholy with a soulful undertow, and a sweet folk-pop voice. Peace and quiet is not a London thing / This is why birds migrate to sing; she croons on Practice Room, a song about the art of songwriting. Produced by Rupert Christie (Kate Bush, Coldplay) this debut is augmented by warm subtle strings and the odd mandolin. Some tracks sound affected (Harriet is marked by a Lily Allen style whimsical charm) but the strongest songs are her simplest, the focus on Stainton and her 8-string guitar, as in the quietly moving Wait For Me. More like this, and we will. Lucy O'Brien --Mojo

Radio 2 favourites multi-faceted debut. Stainton is not the first and is unlikely to be the last Singer/Songwriter lazily heralded as a British Nora Jones, and the occasional parallel is undeniable. Closer inspection however reveals the scattergun jazzy hues of Rickie Lee Jones (Rainbow; Never Quite An Angel) and a touch of Lily Allen mockney wit (Harriet) while the title track suggests the delicate folk of The Unthanks. Stainton's lyrics never veer far from the confessionals of a young girl's diary, but her use of language and turn of phrase hint at a wise and articulate head who'll have more to say in time. Terry Staunton --Uncut

About the Artist

Lisbee originally launched her career 18 months ago, when she became the first unsigned singer-songwriter to play London s O2 Arena, performing to a 30,000 strong audience. However, it was when BBC 6Music DJ Tom Robinson asked Lisbee for a copy of Red after hearing it on Lisbee s MySpace page that the ball really started rolling. Describing Lisbee as a serious young talent and Red as a classic , Robinson s support has continued, with Lisbee returning to play live sessions on his shows on 6 Music and Radio 2 in Tom s words, Wow! Sensational! Absolutely Mint! Featuring the astonishing eight-string guitar technique of Lisbee Stainton. Since then, Lisbee has had Just Like Me (currently in the Top 30 in South East Asia) from her debut album voted Record of The Week on the BBC s Radcliffe & Maconie Show, played live sessions for BBC 6Music, and had GMTV s news announce Lisbee a star in the making. On Friday 16 Oct The Times wrote Bound for Glory - Lisbee Stainton and her eight string guitar .... an exquisite slice of traditional songwriting: pure and pitch perfect. Published by Hornall Bros, several tracks from Girl On An Unmade Bed were recorded at Abbey Road in the legendary Beatles Studio 2, where Lisbee worked closely with producer Rupert Christie, whose credits include U2, Kate Bush, Coldplay & Lou Reed. One of the tracks from these sessions was recorded as a tribute to the work of Peace One Day and has since been chosen for UN Peace Day on September 21st 2010 a year many people are predicting will establish Lisbee as one of the UK s brightest songwriting talents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning 27 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Saw Lizbee on tour supporting Joan Armatrading in Glasgow.
Don't usually pay that much attention to support bands, especially as you don't know the songs. However this was diffirent, she is superb. we were blown away by voice, unusual sound and subtle arrangements.

Buy this and you won't be disappointed

I had never heard of Lisbee Stainton until I had the joy of seeing her in concert the other night. I found her set to be such a revelation that I decided that I had to get the album just to hear if her music was just as good on disc as live.

Girl on an unmade bed was no dissapointment. Each track is beautiful full of emotional strength and a voice to carry all the tracks to their full. The title track is probably my favourite, closely followed by Red.

Go on be inquisitive and buy this album, you will discover a wonderful new voice which deserves massive success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking dorwards to seeing her. 10 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Zoverstocks were, as is usual, reliable and gave good service. The disc itself was good and I enjoyed listening to it. I have seen her with Seth Lakeman and enjoyed her performance then and so I look forwards to seeing her live in November.
