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.

        I’m doing really well. I feel good. Working out at the gym again. Still doing a few old (figuratively and literally) clients. I spent two weeks in India witjh my friend a Maggie and her daughter, Catherine, who imports from there. We had dinners at their friends homes. Went to a camel festival and, yes, ride a camel cart ;very bumpy. Feed and petted female elepahants at an elephant park. Had a snake charmer try to make his old, toothless, bored snake dance, to no avail. Saw Old Delhi, Jodpur, Jaipur, Pushkar where Ghandis,s ashes are interned in a small , bright mausoleum in the middle of the lake covered in pink rose petals. The only Brahman temple in the world is there. Spent New Years in Tucson with Maggie, who is the resident psychic at the Miraval Spa. Climbed a forty food telephone pole to go zip lining ( thought I was going to asphyxiate on the way up the pole. Planning on going to the Galápagos Islands in November. Other than that, not much!!!! How are you doing in your new home?

    Please fill us in more often. Its been 8 years since you’ve been in our neck of the woods. You’re ex citing life gives us major hope for the future. The world needs to understand unspoken “costs” of war and the ” blind eyes” of those who use their vision for destruction. I am heading up a group of quilters who are making patriotic pillows for veterans in our community. May give some unspoken or subtle peace to some. Also working on a “Quilt of Valor” for UNk S. Its a surprise. Marty and our family are doing well-Ari still talks about a future at Cal Tech–the twins are four–and Dotty and Si are aging . Sometimes I want to move to Prov. and fix it all–Dotty’s eyesight is VERY limited–what a joke for a family of optometrists. Susan is in touch with Jan and I can wish I had contact with rest of family, Great “talking” with you much love. m

    Wasn’t it coke that tried to launch bottled water – until a small fact got in the way? anon: 3.41pm “A creative director at BBH not liking facts?What a ridiculous statement”In defence of Scamp, it’s no worse than the man with the longest title in advertising telling us “do facts matter. not really. not anymore. messaging doesn’t matter. it’s how things make you feel” so, do facts matter? yes. no. sometimes. it depends.

    Just had another question arise along these lines and would love your input, Michelle. Say you do an in-person or phone interview and the person sends you more information via email (often this happens to me unsolicited because the person has a brainstorm after we hang up or I leave and I always encourage them to follow up with me if they think of something we didn’t discuss) or you ask a few follow-up questions via email. Would you differentiate the quotes or information you got via email or is that splitting hairs?

    SabinePosted on May 19, 2012 at 11:24 am | Thanks Liz for sharing this episode with us! My best latte memory is the taste of the first latte after our West Coast trail hike when we stopped at Starbucks. Special moments give such a great flavor to everything, even a cup of coffee.Take care, Sabine
