Lisa Engelken

LITTLE WARRIOR, Lisa Engelken's highly-anticipated new album is scheduled for release on October 1, 2013!

Lisa has written, arranged & produced all 11 arresting tracks on Little Warrior, that will take you on a journey to the heavens above and back into the depths below, painting an aural chiaroscuro of the soul.

Engelken’s sonic palate colors cacophonous and symphonic, then suddenly strips down naked. Consonance and dissonance interweave, swirl and wrestle for position as her voice alternately cuts raw, soars powerful, or simply floats pristine.

With an uncanny emotional depth and technical fluency, Lisa draws upon the brutality and beauty of the human experience, to explore and embrace her angels and demons. Little Warrior is Engelken’s follow-up to Caravan, named among the “Best of 2010” by the Jazz Journalists Association and includes “From the Earth, Lisa’s exciting lyric version of Freddie Hubbard’s “Red Clay.”
