Join us for the release show of Backyard Birds, a collection of 7 songs recorded by Lisa Bastoni and Sean Staples over the winter of 2020/2021.
Singer-songwriter Lisa Bastoni is a 2019 Kerrville New Folk Winner, and is a 2019 Boston Music Award nominee (Folk Artist of the Year). Her new album, How We Want to Live (September 2019), chronicles life changes, including songs about the dissolution of her marriage and learning to live a new normal — but more than anything, it finds the songwriter diving deeper into the life she craves.
How We Want to Live, produced by award-winning songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Sean Staples, features guest performances by Mark Erelli, Rose Cousins, Lula Wiles and Naomi Sommers.
Lisa Bastoni has shared the stage with Lori McKenna, Little Big Town, Arlo Guthrie, Regina Spektor, The Secret Sisters, Teddy Thompson, and many more.
Songs from How We Want to Live have been featured in Billboard Country, Wide Open Country, PopMatters, and The Bluegrass Situation.
