Lisa Nemzo Update for 2015

GoDownForArt

I have made some significant changes since my last post of December 2013. I have relocated to the Bay Area for starters. I just joined the SF chapter for RAC. Meeting new peeps. Mastering with Michael Romanowski at his fabulous mastering lab.  The change of environment is profound. No music industry, I do miss my ocean waves and riding them, but it’s a fresh start which I have needed for a long time. The music scene in the Bay Area is diverse and very vibrant!  In the past two years, I have been primarily songwriting and producing.  Have put my own touring/ recording career on the back burner. However, I do occasional surprise guest appearances, which I always love!   I may pop up when you least expect it…

Let’s start from today and move back in time…excuse the third person, but it had to be written by my peers. Anyone who knows me, I do not like tooting my own horn.

PROJECTS

2015

Dream Wild Records (President, Lisa Nemzo) is on the precipice of becoming a co-op label in the Bay Area. With projects for late 2015 brewing, specific artists TBA, it’s an exciting prospect to be launching the label with a new vision- was a dream, now a reality! Sooo exciting… (Big Band, Indie singer songwriter, singles from Bad Ass Boots, and a provocative, guitarist reminiscent of the late Michael Hedges. 2016 will be a year of  CD releases for Dream Wild Records.

July- August 2015

Lisa was approached by Michael Wesley Hughes to produce a special project. Michael and Lisa have worked steadily for two years on his debut solo CD “Tryin’ To Come Back Home”. Classic rock- blues, (which includes Lisa Nemzo/Artie Colatrella song “Arlington”) which tells Michael’s story of his experiences in the VietNam War;  being wounded, left for dead and surviving unthinkable circumstances especially after returning to the states, dealing with PTSD, and the aftermath of exposure to Agent Orange. His story is every veteran’s story. 28 million Veterans are now in our population, with 22 suicides per day, Michael felt compelled to do something about it.  The CD is expected to be released late summer, early fall of 2015. Mastering is March 15th, 2015. Big plans surround this project.

April 21st, 2015 

Last January Emmy Award winning composer, Denise Gentilini and Internationally acclaimed recording artist/songwriter Lisa Nemzo began co-writing a musical about the Armenian Genocide. Inspired by the true story of Denise’s grandparents, Kourken and Malvine Handjian, the musical weaves the atrocities of the genocide and their journey.  They survived the death marches, met in a refugee camp in Greece, married at 15 and 19 and stayed together for nearly 75 years. 26 songs, plus a storybook, written by Denise and Lisa have garnered the attention of Denver based award winning theatre director Christy Montour-Larson. The show is scheduled for a premier performance. As a program of The Armenians of Colorado, to commemorate the ONE HUNDRED YEAR anniversary of the genocide, this coming April 21, 2015 the work will be debuted at June Swaner Gates Concert Hall in the Newman Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Denver.
