Lisa Pressman's passion is to compose beautiful melodies within sophisticated harmonies that lift the listener out of their everyday thoughts and concerns, and guide them to their 'happy place'. As Lisa often says, "A moment of healing lasts forever! My hope is that listeners will take away with them the sense of beauty and peace that I feel is instilled within our music".
Lisa started playing music at an early age. She studied piano and composition at Towson State University in Baltimore. Lisa earned her Masters degree in music composition at Temple University in Philadelphia and she did her post-doctoral piano studies in the casinos of Atlantic City playing Jazz, Latin, and Popular music. Lisa studied voice with Metropolitan Opera star Isola Jones whose teachings were essential for Lisa's ethereal vocalise. Lisa’s composition, “Forever And A Day” (from TOMORROW THE WORLD) defines her best. Lisa explains: “Forever And A Day encapsulates all that I strive for in my music - a beautiful melody, unexpected harmonies, a rich orchestration, and a soaring vocalise for me to sing, all set to a gentle Latin rhythm”.
Lisa co-produces all of her music with her husband, musician/songwriter, Tim Ponzek http://www.airplaydirect.com/timponzek. On her recording EXPECTING MIRACLES, Lisa sings uplifting heartfelt lyrics that inspire spiritual reflection and celebration. Composed and co-produced with her husband, Tim Ponzek, EXPECTING MIRACLES features Lisa's dreamy piano and layers of her ethereal voices (a Lisa Choir!) with Tim’s graceful classical guitar and lush orchestrations.
TOMORROW THE WORLD and IF THE SKY WAS HOME feature Lisa performing Jazzy New Age compositions that are languid and mystical, and at other times, sensual and infused with Latin rhythms. ANGEL DREAMING: A NEW DREAM is a magical and romantic New Age journey floating on layers of beautiful textures.
