Axe-Slinger Lisa Lim Debuts At Blues Alley
WASHINGTON, D.C. August 13, 2014 — Lisa Lim, 2013 WAMA Award winner for Best Modern Rock Instrumentalist and Best Modern Rock Recording, makes her debut performance tonight at Blues Alley in Washington, D.C. at 8PM and 10PM.
“… Sheryl Crow meets Joe Bonamassa” is the perfect way to describe the musical style of nationally recognized performing artist Lisa Lim. If you’re a fan of Sheryl and Joe, then you will love Lisa's masterful songwriting, burning guitar, and distinctive vocals-- all with a killer blues/rock edge.
Her debut CD, “Crazy Feelin’ This Way” (available at CD Baby), received a 2008 WAMA nomination for best R&B Blues Recording. The disc is best described as blues/rock with a hint of funk, and borderline mainstream. Her latest release, “Lisa Lim,” reveals significant growth as an emotional songwriter and performer as she explores the industrial / power blues-influenced indie music genre.
Based out of Fredericksburg, VA, this female blues rockin' versatile axe slinger has been touring, performing solo, in duos, and with her various bands over the past two decades. Her blazing lead, slide and rhythmic guitar chops leave both fans and critics breathless.
"What a thrill it is to be performing at Blue's Alley, where so many of my musical heroes have graced the stage over the years!" says Lisa.
