Bio

Lisa Nemzo is the real deal. No agendas, rocked right out of the box and into your soul.
Nemzo is in the vanguard of female artists who not only sing and write songs, but are also masters of their instrument. Lisa’s been compared to Paula Cole, Heart, Melissa Etheridge, Sarah McLaughlin and Howie Day. Her clear sultry vocals & driving hypnotic guitar style will leave you mesmerized.

Nemzo's known for her show stopping, over-the-neck harmonic 12-string guitar solos.
Raw emotion drives her guitar grooves, haunting melodies and poignant lyrics. Each song takes you on a journey into the depths and heights of love, life and experiences we’ve all been through but often don’t talk about.

Over four years in the making, “Unlock My Heart” was culled from over 350 songs written by Nemzo. The album is a renaissance of romantic edged tunes with catchy melodies and infectious riffs. It is a 16-course, multi-layered musical journey that lures you in, then captures you and compels you to listen over and over.

Highly regarded by her fellow musicians, Lisa’s been a well-kept secret to many American audiences. Three records released in Germany, on Metronome/Polygram, the Netherlands, Japan, and Australia, kept her on tour, making videos, and thrilling fans all over the world. Her songs have been featured on video and European television. Three independent CD releases demonstrate Lisa’s versatile songwriting in styles of soulful electro-acoustic rock and pop.

Her catalog of charted songs includes: “Walking on Ice,” “Hard For a Girl Like Me,” “I Don’t Wanna’ Fool With Love,” “Hot Summer Nights”—a hit song for Harvey Mason and Lee Ritenour’s “Stone Mason”—and “Short Cut, ” a single on “Here's to Love” and “Greatest Hits” by Tanya Tucker. Lisa Nemzo has also toured with Bonnie Raitt, Heart, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Christopher Cross, Hall and Oates and many other artists.

A consummate professional, Nemzo produced and arranged this body of work, sang and played guitars and keyboards. “Unlock My Heart” demonstrates Lisa’s depth and power and live show energy, with a band of wicked hot musicians from LA and Nashville. Bass: Dave Pomeroy (Elton John, Tricia Yearwood); Electric Guitar: Michael Durham (Dave Matthews) and Bruce Michael Miller; Keyboards: Catherine Styron Marx; Percussion: Debra Dobkin (Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson); Drums: Billy Thomas (Vince Gill, Little River Band). Final track, #16, “Bad Seed,” a tragic saga of an American family gone wrong, features Karl Werne on lead guitar, lightning out of a bottle, from Big Wide Grin.

Lisa’s lead-off single and video “Reach”won Best Environmental Music Video of 2009, from Green Screen Environmental Film Festival and Salon. Nemzo’s music is making its way to Internet radio and a summer/fall tour. The “Reach“ video, inspires hope, community, and making the world a better place, and was produced by former Heart manager Ken Kinnear.

“Unlock My Heart” is available on CD and a special edition two-record set on vinyl, autographed and numbered; set one in Cherry Red and set two in Popsicle Orange.
