“Save Us” Single
Hailing from the Garden State of New Jersey, Lisa Coppola is no stranger to music purists in the Northeast. Her diverse resume includes playing and contributing her talents with the likes of Billy Joel, Marshall Crenshaw, Philly's John Eddie, Mitch Malloy, Glen Burtnik (Styx) and the Charlie Daniels Band. She has also played some of the most legendary NE clubs including The Bitter End in NYC and the Jersey Shore's hottest spots. Nashville is calling!
Her new single and video, “Save Us”, from her upcoming LP, “Perfectly Imperfect”, pictures Asbury Park in her eyes and makes you feel like you are standing there watching as the imagery of the story line and music are perfectly blended. Her powerful pipes hypnotize you from beginning to end. The composition is masterful as the bridge hits you in the gut and the hook grabs you and hold you hostage.
This track has the ability to bust multiple formats including CHR, MOR and Country as a BREAKOUT in short order. I cannot wait to hear the complete effort.
This is a MUST LISTEN. On the Nor'easter Storm Scale, I give this a FORCE 4! WELL DONE LISA!
