One of the most exciting voices in the UK’s homegrown country/Americana scene, Lisa Wright, has announced release of her brand new EP Mind of Mine, set for release on 25 May 2018. Produced by Matt Greaves (Ward Thomas, The Girls Musical), the EP contains four brand new songs, and is Lisa’s most personal work to date. Lead single, Tennessee, co-written by Wright with Kaity Rae, was inspired by her trip to the US in late 2017, reflecting the notorious ups and downs of the music industry and the search for purpose in life.
Two of the tracks were solely written by Lisa, with Giving Up The Ghost penned in collaboration with Jake Etheridge, known for his starring role as Sean McPherson on CMT’s Nashville TV show, and having also lent his songwriting talents to the show’s soundtrack.
Combining Wright’s staple of honest and emotive lyrics with a new exploration of sound and style, it’s obvious that ‘Mind of Mine’ will showcase this young artist’s ability to continually re-create herself, while staying true to her roots. Having opened for US country star Cam earlier this month, and with support dates with the likes of Ward Thomas & Phil Vassar under her belt, it’s easy to see why the Nashville Songwriters Association have declared Lisa Wright “one to watch”.
Mind of Mine is out on 25 May 2018, and available to pre-order now, with an EP launch at 229 in London on 23 May.
