Multi-faceted artist Lisa Marini Releases first self-produced Album Buried Town

“An auspicious debut, Marini has the potential to be one of the most significant voices of the next decade and beyond” Mike Davies, Folk Radio UK

On the streets at 12. In a drug raid at 15. Now sober and releasing her second album. This is one of many stories that make up alternative pop artist Lisa Marini who is releasing her first self-produced album Buried Town April 21st, 2023. 

The 10-track album is an ethereal, emotionally captivating collection of songs that are beautifully crafted, under the artist’s unifying worldview. Marini did everything from the writing, recording and production, to the artwork and visuals. 

As described by Marini, “Half of the songs on this album are a celebration to creative energy and the other half are songs about being taken away from said energy and the search to find my way back to it.”. 

Ahead of Buried Town’s digital release on April 21st, Lisa Marini will be performing at her launch party at Camden’s The Green Note April 14th and releasing the highly anticipated music video for the album’s second single One Step From Land March 24th. The video explores the interplay of hope and fear, bringing the conversation to life visually with contrasting colours and movement. 

Buried Town sees Marini examine a wide range of themes including the lingering presence of someone who’s left, protecting creativity at all costs, and distractions in the face of mortality. The contemplative topics should come as no surprise given the artist’s history. Running away from a dysfunctional home at 12, Lisa found herself living with heroin addicts before being caught in a police raid in her teens. Recognised as not being part of the gang, Lisa was let go with a new outlook on life. What followed was sobriety, a return to education, and the beginning of her new positive nomadic lifestyle. 

While Lisa Marini has been a performing musician for years with features on Jazz FM and BBC Scotland, playing Wilderness Festival’s mainstage, the o2 for Blues Fest, and Camden’s iconic Jazz Café multiple times, the artist has explored all corners of the working world. Across the years, Marini has worked as a band photographer, a visual artist, an independent agent running London Jazz and Blues nights, an actor/model, and, of course, on the Eastenders underwear stall. 

Buried Town brings together the strands of Lisa’s remarkable personal and artistic history into one incredible collection. Audiences can look forward to the release of its third single Strange Sea April 7th, the full album Buried Town April 21st, and its third single Flower Under Frost April 28th
