...........................................

About Lisa Gutkin...
Best known as a member of The Klezmatics and the downtown Celtic band Whirligig, and most recently for her award winning work as co-composer and performer in Paula Vogel’s INDECENT, Lisa Gutkin is celebrated for her world-class fiddling. She's also a Grammy-winning songwriter for her settings of Woody Guthrie's lyrics on the Klezmatics CD “Wonder Wheel," and she's written music (and appeared on) Sex & The City, performed on Broadway with Sting, written the score for a Mabou Mines production, and was awarded a MacDowell fellowship. All along, this consummate musician and sideman has secretly longed to sing her own songs.To date Lisa’s songs have only been recorded by others, most namely the wonderful Susan McKeown. On From Here On In, her new 6-song EP, Lisa sings. She also accompanies herself on tenor guitar, and is joined by some of the musicians she most loves working with: Will Holshouser, Byron Isaacs, Roger Squitero, Buddy Cage, Cillian Vallely, Steve Holloway, Vaneese Thomas, and Fiona McBain. Produced by John Lissauer (Leonard Cohen, Loudon Wainwright), these songs are honest and warm. From Here On In, Lisa invites you to feel right at home.
