Biography

Lisa Bouchelle is an indie Americana singer/songwriter. Her latest EP, Lipstick Tomboy, has over 2 million streams on Spotify. The video for the first single, a duet with John Popper of Blues Traveler, has over 140,000 YouTube views, and her latest single premiered recently on AXS.com and has over 110,000 views.

Lisa has sung backup for Bruce Springsteen, and dueted in concert with Jon Bon Jovi. She has toured with and/or opened for Meat Loaf, Blues Traveler, Train, Bryan Adams, Don Felder of The Eagles, Ingrid Michaelson, Donavon Frankenreiter, America, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and many others, playing venues ranging from clubs to 17,000 seat arenas.

Her style has been compared to Jason Mraz, Sheryl Crow, and Jewel, but what sets her music apart is an edge reminiscent of classic artists such as Neil Young and Tom Petty.

Lisa started singing at a young age, because although her parents loved her deeply, the only time they would stop arguing was when little Lisa sang. Now, after losing both her parents, she still sings every chance she gets, whether it be driving thousands of miles across the US on her own, or playing in the train station for tips. In fact, she was recently interviewed on NPR Radio about her experiences busking in the Philadelphia train station.

Lisa is also the host of the TV show "Rock Star Kitchen, which is seen twice weekly on The Comcast Network Philadelphia down to Virginia, as well as eastern Pennsylvania. Guests have included Foreigner, Eddie Money, Chubby Checker, Night Ranger, Lita Ford, Bowling For Soup, The Fixx, Tonic, and Candlebox, among others.

Lisa can captivate audiences playing solo, duo, or with her full band. She is a great addition to any bill, and is one of the hardest working indie artists in the US.


Lyrics

Insane

Written By: Lisa Bouchelle

You're an innocent bystander, No I could not let you suffer
Well, I put away all those things that you came here to discover
I'm a little guarded now, lookin' out my window pane
But I'm singing at a frequency that might make this glass break, cuz…

Being in love's like being insane
Cuz you fly fast, you don't look around,
You make no provisions for the rain
Cuz once you fall, you can't look down

You're an innocent bystander, No I can't blame this on you
Cuz once love stole my sanity, there was nothing you could do
An innocent bystander, No you committed no crime
You just tied me up, and you set me free, and I guess I lost my mind, oh and…

Being in love's like being insane
Cuz you fly fast, you don't look around,
You make no provisions for the rain
Cuz once you fall, you can't look down

You can't look down
It'll do you no good to look around
If you look too hard, you might lose the best thing you ever found …..

You're an innocent bystander, no I could not let you suffer
I would not leave you exposed to lightening, while I ran for cover
An innocent bystander, no you committed no crime
You just tied me up, and you set me free, and I guess I lost my mind, oh and…

Being in love's like being insane
Cuz you fly fast, you don't look around,
You make no provisions for the rain
Cuz once you fall, you can't look down

Yeah, Being in love's like being insane
Cuz you fly fast, you don't look around,
You make no provisions for the rain
Cuz once you fall, you can't look down

Along For The Ride

Take a chance, have some fun
Who knows where we'll land when this is done
Along For The Ride

Travel in a caravan
Throw away your master plan
and come Along For The Ride

Hold on tight, we're goin' faster
Hold on tight, this might not last
They say you never know until you try

So come Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride

Throw it to the wind now, Child
You just live once, you thought you'd live it wild
and come Along For The Ride

You're heart is screamin', why not listen
Let go of those inhibitions! . . . ahhh
and come Along For The Ride

Hold on tight, we're goin' faster
Hold on tight, this might not last
They say you never know until you try

So come Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride
Along For The Ride

Reinvent

Written By: Lisa Bouchelle

Feel like I’m going nowhere
Feel like I need a change
Feel like I let you hold me down
Today things will be different
Why let them be the same
When I can turn it all around

Though you say, that you know that I won’t make it
That’s OK, I know my heart and you can’t break it
I can sit around and cry, I could try to wonder why
I could let all my dreams die
Or I could reinvent myself

This time the wheel is turning my way
Today’s an open highway
I’m gonna reinvent myself

I’m gonna make some changes I should have made before
And now I know the time is right
I feel a transformation
I see an open door
I found my runway, I’ll take flight

Though you say, that you know that I won’t make it
That’s OK, I know my heart and you can’t break it

I can sit around and cry, I could try to wonder why
I could let all my dreams die, Or I could reinvent myself

This time the wheel is turning my way, today’s an open highway
I’m gonna reinvent myself

My dreams are no dillusion, not subject to your intrusion
I won’t let you in
Change my hair and change my style, find my groove and find my smile
Uncover who I am

I can sit around and cry, I could try to wonder why
I could let all my dreams die
Or I could reinvent myself

This time the wheel is turning my way
Today’s an open highway
I’m gonna reinvent myself

Rediscover, redefine, reassess, redesign, reenergize, realize, reassert, reorganize…
I’m gonna reinvent myself

Only The Tequila Talkin'

Written By: Lisa Bouchelle/John Eddie

He told me I was beautiful just when I needed to hear it
I let down my guard and the liquor was hard, the tequila lifted my spirts
That silver tongued devil said he was on the level, so I guess it really wasn’t my fault
But it was only the tequila talkin’, shoulda took it with a grain of salt

She told me I was adequate, she said the pickin’s were slim
I bit my tongue cause she was somewhat young, and I wanted to feel young again
That little sweet talker coulda been a street walker, she was hotter than Georgia asphalt
It was only the tequila talkin’, shoulda took it with a grain of salt

God, You’re so beautiful Boy, you’re just my type
I could really fall for you Don’t Think I can drive home tonite
Will ya be a gentleman? Will ya be a blow up doll?
It’s just the tequila talkin’, letz take it with a grain of salt

Coyote Ugly on the Spectravision in the not so Super 8
He said the sex would be amazin’ but it really wasn’t that great
Blame it on the lies we told, blame it on the alcohol
It was only the tequila talkin’, shoulda took it with a grain of salt

God, You’re so beautiful Boy, you’re just my type
I could really fall for you Don’t Think I can drive home tonite
Will ya be a gentleman? Will ya be a livin’ doll?
It’s just the tequila talkin’, letz take it with a grain of salt
It’s just the tequila talkin’, letz take it with a grain of salt

Heaven On Credit

Written By: Lisa Bouchelle/Bob Burger

So much for the 'safe side' of your life, Never thought you'd really cross that line
But now you're playing it over and over in your mind
I could be your angel of sweetness,
The feeling you can't fight
I could be what you only dream of, Even if it's just for tonight
Chorus: Kiss me! Kiss me! No one else will see us,
With the exception of the moon and Jesus
I'm not worried that they're gonna tell....
C'mon and Touch me! Touch me, No one else will know it
It'll be our secret, I promise not to show it
Take me to Heaven On Credit, Even if we owe a little debt to Hell
Take me to Heaven On Credit, Even if we owe a little debt
I can see your hidden emotions, Unsure about where to go
Pressed close up against your body, too close to take it slow
I should think of the consequences, I should think about the cost
But in a moment rare and priceless, consequences can get lost
Chorus
Do you know, do you know how I need you, Do you know, do you know how I need your love? There's no denying, Do you feel, do you feel what I'm feeling?
Do you feel how much, how far, how high we could be flying?
Chorus
