Belgium – Lisa Bennett debuts her first reggae EP which can only be described as modern reggae with a jazzy/soulful touch. Apple Tree, being one of Rory of Stone Love’s favorites, bounces over the Belly Ska Riddim while My House on the ever so popular Puff Puff Riddim, delivers a full dose of awareness in a cool & subtle way with Iba Mahr being one of many to participate on MacLes’s Puff Puff Riddim. Make sure to check out features with Weedy G, DreadSquad, & even a special remix of Radikal Guru created by Lisa herself.
Blowing Down Trees is nominated for Album Of The Year on reggaeville.com.
Brooklyn born to Jamaican parents, Lisa began singing in school and church choirs, then later to local talent shows. She soon began penning her own lyrics which would later lead to her being offered a major deal that she turned down. Now on her own terms, Lisa has released her first reggae EP & has managed to bring something fresh & new to the table. An appreciation that many have gotten a chance to experience at such festivals as Reggae Geel, Kokopelli, & MekItBurn to name a few.
Lisa is definitely blazing a new path in reggae & it’s all her own. Delivering music that’s soulful & consciously aware, it’s a guarantee that you’ll hear from her over & over again. Look out for shows in Belgium in Feb, March, May, and throughout the year.
