Text by Orindal Records:

"Lisa / Liza is the songwriting project of Portland, ME singer and guitarist Liza Victoria. Throughout her new album, Shelter of a Song, Liza affirms the value of music and songwriting in her life, providing her comfort through illness and isolation, and helping her to hold onto cherished memories through the poetry she sings.

Shelter of a Song was recorded in the kitchen of a Central Maine studio apartment with engineering assistance from Peter Herman. All takes were recorded live, capturing the immediacy and quiet power of Liza's hushed vocals and fingerstyle acoustic guitar. The album's eight original songs are gentle meditations on joy, pain, human relationships and the natural world that stretch out slowly like long shadows.

Liza explains:

“These songs were written while dealing with chronic illness. When I was actively writing in these last two years, it The times when I felt well enough to sit with music allowed me a new kind of joy, because of these struggles with health. My vision and hope for this collection of songs is they would allow room for the listener to find their own interpretations, similar to how someone might make a quilt where each piece holds personal connection but in its use it takes on additional shape. ”

Liza's lyrics conjure vivid images of everyday beauty: a dog rolling in the grass on a nice day; walking down a darkened street to meet the sunrise; robins filling up a field. The natural world holds a strong place in these songs, providing much of the album's optimism as bright and dreamlike descriptions of flora, fauna and celestial bodies are plainsung over muted strums and arpeggiated guitar patterns.

'I had been spending a lot of my down times on hikes and walks, ”Liza continues.“ Nature became something vital to my heart both in healing and health. I always enjoy writing about what surrounds me as a way to preserve memory or draw Out memory from my past. Perhaps in preserving these memories in song, I'm allowed some small agency to let them go, as I know I can come back to them again. Writing these songs helped me to affirm moments of peace and resolution. Writing music is a place of great comfort for me, and it has only become more apparent to me how great a companion it is.'"
