Before becoming one of the hottest tickets in her hometown of Chicago, Lisa McClowry began her adult career working behind the scenes in movie music. She collaborated with Mark Mothersbaugh of the iconic group Devo and Lavant Coppock to write and perform "Through the Eyes of Child" for the motion picture "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle." Later, she served as the singing voice & voice over artist for TRESemme Shampoos and Conditioners TV Campaign ("TRESemme, Ooh la la TRESemme!") and Applebee's.Additionally, Lisa performed the theme song, "Bridge to the Stars" with Tracey Amos for the "Wild Thornberrys" soundtrack, and was selected to sing the voice of the "Princess" in "Rugrats in Paris: The Movie." With three movie credits to her name, Lisa found herself walking the red carpet with cameras flashing. Still, she felt she had not yet found her true purpose."I had so much to say in my songs, so much to communicate through my voice. I had only scratched the surface," she said. It was time to trade the red carpet for the solo spotlight. In 2010, a new chapter has begins. Drawing from musical influences that include Ella Fitzgerald, Ann Wilson (Heart), Steve Perry (Journey) and her extensive live performance work, she is taking her soulful four-octave range on a new voyage with her album release, "Time Signatures." In collaboration with mentor/producer Jim Peterik (Grammy award winner, Oscar nominee for "Eye Of The Tiger," writer of "The Search Is Over," "Hold On Loosely," "Vehicle" and many more), "Time Signatures" hits the airwaves worldwide on NuGroove\Worldstage Int'l, distributed by Red\Sony in June 2010. The expert craftsmanship of Peterik lends itself throughout the album to include the blistering "Born Twice," the smoldering heat of "Waiting for You" and the joyous self-empowerment anthem of "Powerful Day." "Writing with Jim has brought the best out in my lyrics and melodies. The songs reflect the way I look at life, positive messages with an edge. My vocal approach is to communicate the emotion of the song?simple as that," said McClowry. How the listeners interpret the music is equally important to this songbird. "My hope is that people will see themselves in my music?. see that there's more out there? uncover the truth in their soul," she said. Known professionally as a "singer's singer," Lisa harnesses the essence of the emotional moment of each song throughout "Time Signatures" with powerful vocals that will leave you breathless. Her incredible artistic range and fresh image renders an overall superior artist package that resides where pop meets soul and musical genres merge. It is a place where age categories and demographics fade away until all that remains is the pure music?a time signature for the evolution of sound. http://www.addthis.com/bookmark.php?v=250&username=
