New York, NY (Top40 Charts) London based singer-songwriter Lisabel has announced the release of her upcoming debut album, A Work Of Art on May 5th. The single was premiered via XS Noize. The album was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered at her own production company, Brother Sun Sister Moon Productions Studio by Nikola Kovačević. Thus far, she has been supported by the likes of Le Future Wave, comeherefloyd, Talk About Pop Music. Lisabel has received airplay from Pheonix FM's Bob Simpson, contributing towards her modest play count of just under 36 000 plays across streaming platforms, with Spotify dominating most of those plays. Lisabel has had a chance to play in some of London's most renowned venues such as The Half Moon, Pizza Express Jazz Club (Soho and Chelsea), O2 Academy Islington to name a few.

Lisabel was born in Italy and moved to London in 2013 although due to her family's relationship with the UK, she had spent a fair amount of time in the country before her relocation to London. With a mixture of Motown meets jazz and contemporary R&B meeting the ringing tones of her mother's voice, the singer had a foundation of music in her life from a young age. Initially the piano lessons she took at an early age didn't catch her attention but it wasn't until she pursued the choir and singing that she began to find her passion. Having studied at both BIMM London and Berklee College of Music, Lisabel has a solid theoretical understanding behind the practical aspects of music.

The songstress strives to not let influences pollute her creativity too strongly as she really wants to sound like herself when it comes to both songwriting and sound production. However, the artists she frequently finds herself listening to are the likes of Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote), Gretchen Parlato, Becca Stevens, Chantae Cann, Jill Scott, Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Emily King, Jordan Rakei with the more traditional elements of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Kurt Elling arriving regularly. With this wide variety of influences comes a unique sound that could be associated to Solange, Aretha Franklin and Erykah Badu while maintaining its own individualistic integrity.

With broad strokes of atmospheric tones and warm, embracing vocals, Lisabel holds her listeners captive as she paints her own work of art. The track carries a soulful yet nurturing tone as the songstress' vocals soar and dive between beats, hinting at the full range of her skills. 'A Work Of Art' carries a sense of pride in the way the song conducts itself, with simple cascading embellishments supporting the effect rather than overpowering it.

Lisabel reveals the history behind the recording process of the single, saying: "A Work of Art is the first song I have ever written lyrics for that I was incredibly proud of and in love with. The song was written together with producer and pianist Nikola Kovačević, he specifically wrote the verses' chords and the arrangement and I wrote the chorus' chords and the melody/lyrics. We recorded 'A Work of Art' in his home studio which is part of our production company (Brother Sun Sister Moon Productions). It was a beautiful and organic process, getting ideas together that served this song about pure love. I wrote the song after falling in love with someone who to me represented a pure and loving soul that I trusted and wanted to celebrate."
