Lisa B's Music
Hear the Songs & Verse
Explore the CDBaby music player above to sample and download songs from Lisa B's (Lisa Bernstein's) six albums on her Piece of Pie Records... including the new "Reverberant: Poems & Music"!
The exception is Lisa's 2018 record "I Get A Kick: Cole Porter Reimagined," released by Jazzed Media. Find it on all the music platforms and via the store buttons under the menu, but it has a traditional distributor that even gets it into brick-and-mortar stores, hence, not on CDBaby.
Go to music links below the menu for Lisa B's seven records and her singles! Apple, Google Play, Spotify, Tidal, Amazon... or search for your favorite platform.
Lisa's YouTube channel. (We embedded a few of her coolest videos below.) And then there's her You Tube Music other channel, the one that plays all the tunes from every single one of her records. In fact, please subscribe to and share these. They get some listens but they need more.
Speaking of physical CDs, you might want to buy one, available at CDBaby (except "Cole Porter Reimagined")...
...or on Amazon: here for "Reverberant" and here for the rest of Lisa B's records. (Yep, CDBaby screwed up and put the physical CDs for "Reverberant" on a whole different page from the downloads/streaming and apparently can't unstick it.)
Just make sure you don't buy CDs from sellers other than CDBaby or Amazon, because if you do, Lisa B won't see any money from it.
Does this all seem complicated? Ever heard of "who's on first?"?
Finally: Thanks for your pleasure in these tunes and verses, and your support!
Streaming is convenient but it pays just under a penny per stream to the artist. We bet that's news to you! So, you know, download something or get a CD you can hold in your damp and lovely hands.
(And you thought we meant it when we said "finally." There's no "finally" on this website.)
