PRESS RELEASE:

LISA CRAWLEY RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND ANNOUNCES EP AND TOUR

With a back catalogue that boasts two albums and two EPs, coupled with countless collaborations, tours, television appearances and acclaimed music-based projects, Lisa Crawley has well and truly earned her reputation as one of New Zealand’s most well-respected musicians.

Now Crawley is adding to her lengthy list of achievements with the new single, ‘Up In The Air’ (out today via Bandcamp), from her upcoming EP of the same name, which will be released online on October 16.

The five-track EP is produced by sought-after Australian producer Ryan Ritchie (Kimbra, The Rah Project), whose work with Kiwi singer Kimbra on ‘Cameo Lover’ earned him an ARIA.

UP IN THE AIR contains four new songs penned by Crawley in the last year, documenting recent adventures in Canada, the United States and her new home, Melbourne.

It also features a fifth song, ‘Mayday’ – a demo she reworked for the EP, originally written eight years ago in the UK by fellow Kiwi Matt Michinson, who was in a band with Crawley in London at the time.

UP IN THE AIR builds on the retro vibe of 2013’s ALL IN MY HEAD, showcasing a singer-songwriter who has found her place in a dreamy, melodic pop world, with an edgy darkness.

The EP rounds off an exciting year in which Crawley performed at Canadian Music Week in Toronto – the only Kiwi representative at the festival. She also played a string of shows in Los Angeles and won the LA-based online songwriting game show Top Tune where contestants (songwriters) are given a title and have 17 minutes to pen a tune. Judges on the show include Ray Parker Jnr and Van Dyke Parkes.

Now back in the Southern Hemisphere and based in Melbourne Crawley can’t wait to bring her new material home, with an eight-date tour that commences on November 5.

"I'm very excited to be touring New Zealand. I'll be playing my new EP alongside favourites from my previous two albums. I promise there will be no sign of an Australian accent!" says Crawley.

She is of course, no stranger to touring, having travelled the length and breadth of the country as a solo artist and in support of big names in music like John Mayer, Paul Weller, Jools Holland and Greg Johnson.

‘Up In The Air’ single is available now. The UP IN THE AIR EP is released Friday October 16, while the tour kicks off on November 5.
