Lisa’s career has spanned over 3 decades, boasting sales of nearly 20 million records and a string of international top 10 hits including: Around The World, Change, All Woman and Someday.
The aptly named album ‘Seven’ is Lisa’s 7th studio release and promises to galvanise her fan base old and new. The Grammy nominated, multi BRIT, Ivor Novello and Silver Clef Award winner has returned to the studio to record along with long-time songwriting partner Ian Devaney, whose credits include The Bodyguard and Indecent Proposal soundtracks.
Seven which has been produced and written in the UK by Lisa Stansfield and husband Ian Devaney features tracks such as: Can’t Dance, The Rain, Stupid Heart, Conversation, The Crown, Strong, So Be It and Picket Fence
Recorded in both Los Angeles and Manchester, Stansfield has collaborated with John "JR" Robinson, known as the most recorded drummer in history and Grammy award winning orchestrator Jerry Hey, both integral to the creation of Michael Jackson’s “Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad” and have worked with Lisa for over two decades.
Following her critically acclaimed return to live performance in 2013– The Times said “Lisa still has the most distinctive and sensuous voice in soul pop”
"Seven" marks Lisa’s return to the international stage and confirms her status as one of the UK’s premier recording artists.
Due to phenomenal demand and such a fantastic reception at her recent European tour, Lisa is also delighted to announce five further UK Autumn tour dates. These upcoming shows in: Bexhill, Bournemouth, Manchester, Bristol and London feature both classic hits and new material taken from the upcoming album ‘Seven’
Adding a further string to her bow, and with Lisa’s ongoing contribution to British Soul being undeniable, Stansfield will be starring in an independent film about the genre due out later this year. Charting the soul phenomenon that rose out of Northern England, ‘Northern Soul’ will see Lisa team up with a renowned cast of UK actors including Steve Coogan and Ricky Tomlinson paying homage to the musical genre that has influenced her own style.
