Biography

Their concert was voted best live show of FME 2014 by Consequence of Sound, (Chicago). That same year, they took home the prize at a showcase in NYC, earning them a free music video worth 30,000$ for their song, “Paper Heart.”Blood And Glass embellishes you in a dark and playful world. Their unforgettable live shows have won critical acclaim and their self-produced first album received four stars across the globe.

Fronted by an eccentric woman who has been described by journalists as the missing link between Bjork and Tom Waits, Lisa Moore is a raw performance artist. She began singing opera and went on to sing in punk bands. Italy named her the next Siouxie Sioux. Fingers on Blast (USA) described her as, “…a heart-broken Cyndi Lauper who will have you addicted… this band is going to make waves.” The songs are catchy and edgy at once. 

Formed in Montreal in 2013 first by Lisa Moore (Creature, Ariane Moffatt) alone, then Morgan Moore (The Barr Brothers) joined her ship and the two were married. In 2014 Robbie Kuster (Patrick Watson) joined their ship adding drums and glass marimba. Next, Melanie Belair (Rufus Wainwright) brought her violin, and Francois Lafontaine (Karkwa) added his vintage synths -- and their sound was born.

Blood and Glass’s debut album “Museum With No Walls,” was released in October 2014. It has earned four-star ratings around the world and the music is played on college radio stations nation wide.

They opened for Patrick Watson across the USA and Canada for over 20 dates and they toured Italy, playing 19 concerts and earning a licensing deal. They have opened for Leif Vollebeck, LIttle Scream, Thus Owls, and Ariane Moffatt.

They are currently mixing their second album, “PUNK SHADOWS” out on Simone Records on March 24th, 2017. PUNK SHADOWS was recorded by Warren Spicer (Plants and Animals) and it features catchy, playful pop-punk songs with Asiatic string arrangements.   

BLOOD AND GLASS are not just a band, they are a live experience, involving performance art and visuals that wrap the audience in a maze of art and sound.

Lyrics

MERRY GO ROUND - demo

Written By: Lisa Iwanycki

Kick off the ground
No more waiting around
The horses are ready
Ride them right out of town

Saddled up tight
They are leaving tonight
Go on and catch one
Soon you'll be out of sight

Don't look back
You might get dizzy
Stay on track
Don't wanna freeze up
Like a heart attack
So keep on moving and
Don't look back
Head right out of town

Uh oh ....no
They are stuck on poles

It's like musical chairs
Cause we're going nowhere
The horses are stuck on poles
They are caught in midair

No...

It's a merry-go-round
Running into the ground
The horses are plastic
And they're laughing like clown

Still...
Don't look back
You might get dizzy
Stay on track
Don't wanna freeze up
Like a heart attack
So keep on moving and
Don't look back
Around and around

Spiralling spiralling out of control
Sitting and spiralling got no control
Still just
Don't look back
Stay on track...
....heart attack....
Don't look back......

Bad Dreams

Written By: Lisa Iwanycki

now, now
bad dreams won’t happen

now, now
i won’t dream no more

thought i fell into another
dream once more
now i know
i’ve seen this all before

my eyes are lit like candles
can’t get a grip or handle
walk down a clouded hall
museum with no walls
a door inside a door
move to another floor
i try to take the stairs
and spiral to nowhere
a place where dreams are sleeping
monster machines are breathing
a war inside a ward
ten eyes behind a door
and in the shadow’s mouth
i find a new way out
another clouded hall
museum with no walls

wake up wake up, no

now, now
bad dreams won't happen
now, now,
I won't dream no more....

Floating Nora

Written By: Lisa Iwanycki

i floated
as the sky was falling
i floated under rocks
i  floated as the sky
fell over the water and under the clouds
then sank

i drifted
away
i drifted over blood
i drifted as the vein broke
under the candy and over the highs
i drank

oh reckless reckless ship
sailing in the water
no one can touch this here
boat in a bottle
oh reckless, reckless ship
caught in a bottle
no one can touch this here

soaked up girl
messed up world
you'll sink deeper than her heart

soaped up world
held my girl you can't ever
have her heart

soaped up girl
mucked up world
you'll sink deeper than her heart
all my world
held my girl
you can't ever
have her heart

i floated
i floated
i floated away
