Bio

�Hushed, rustic and rooted firmly in the Midwest tradition, country-tinged love songs fueled by Lisa DeRosia's unique vocals and Greg Schultz�s impressive guitar and pedal steel work� solid songwriting, tasteful arrangements, strong musicianship.�� Chicago Tribune.
Reviewers and fans have likened Lush Budgett to everything from �vintage country gems� to contemporary artists Lucinda Williams and Casey Chambers. Homey, crafted and varied like your grandmother�s oddly matched china. Part Emily Dickinson and part Kris Kristofferson, these stories are wrapped in arrangements flavored with bits of Burt Bacharach�s �70s orchestral pop, Tammy Wynette�s classic country and the Beatles Revolver-era rock.
Lisa DeRosia�s angelic voice and the band�s solid musicianship showcase solidly crafted songs with a timeless pop sensibility. Lush Budgett avoids the country sub-genre flavor-of-the-month in favor of a lonesome and steady sound driven by catchy hooks and evocative lyrics.
DeRosia�s songs have been recognized by American Songwriter magazine and included in the prestigious Old Town School of Music Songbook. The band has been included on a best unsigned bands compilation sponsored by Billboard magazine and discmakers and has performed on television, radio and major festivals throughout the country. Lisa's song "Lost Frontier" received an honorable mention in American songwriter magazine. Lisa was included in American Songwriter magazine's top 50 amateur songwriters of 2007.
�Purely bittersweet country�no winking update of country music traditions�embraces the music�s lonesome poetry and warm spirit, matching it with tuneful melodies and tasteful orchestrations�-Daily Herald

Lisa is an employee at the Old Town School of Folk muisc and appears on The Old Town School Song Book Volumes 2 and 3. Leroy Bach calls her performance of the classic bluegrass song "East Virginia" gritty.
