From the recording In A Heartbeat (songs from The Great American Songbook)
The great Ray Charles recorded this...so did Kenny Loggins and I was inspired by both. Herein, my interpretation of this story of unknown and unrequited love.
From intimate supper clubs to Radio City Music Hall and every type of venue across the US and Europe, Lisa Addeo's music touches audiences of all sizes. “I adore playing ‘live’. As my music fills the room, the audience fills my heart.”
Inspired by the romance of the words and the charming melodies of these love songs from The Great American Songbook, Lisa swoons with Frank Sinatra's vintage microphone in the same studio where Ol' Blue Eyes himself recorded these timeless classics... Studio A at Capitol Records tower - the hottest ticket in town!
Accompanying herself on Capitol Studios' grand piano and backed on upright by Alex Frank (Dave Damiani, Jeff Goldblum) and Ryan Shaw on Drums (Michael Bublé) Lisa Addeo delivers 12 love songs and joins forces with Capitol Records' legendary engineer Steve Genewick to deliver a deliciously smooth collection of timeless standards.
"It was a riveting experience to record the same songs Frank Sinatra recorded in the exact same studio while singing into his vintage microphone", states Addeo. "With legendary engineer Steve Genewick behind the board at Capitol Studios in Hollywood and my talented sidemen, the project took on a delicious and dreamy sound...A Kind Of Daydream."
Lisa Addeo is a Pianist/Vocalist/Composer currently heard in homes across America and around the world. She is comfortable playing and singing many different styles, from Contemporary/Smooth Jazz to Pop and the Great American Songbook.
Lisa says, "I have been a huge fan of amazing artists like Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin, and these timeless love songs for as long as I can remember. It's a dream come true to be played nationally alongside these giants. They are truly musical royalty. I adore these sweet melodies and heart stopping lyrics".
Lisa has been described as a ‘world-class musician’ and her music as ‘tenderly intimate, a joy to listen to.’ One listener wrote, 'This is music that comes from the heart...with soul.'
All of Lisa's music can be found here and on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Pandora, iHeart radio, her website, YouTube and all major digital retailers.
Lisa is an avid golfer and a qualified boat captain. She taught swimming and was a lifeguard as part of her island life. As a young adult, she broke attendance records as Liberace's protégé playing piano alongside him at Radio City Music Hall.
You put your hand in mine
And then you say, "Hello."
And I can hardly speak,
My heart is beating so.
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well.
Well, you don't know me.
No you don't know the one
Who dreams of you at night;
And longs to kiss your lips
And longs to hold you tight
To you I'm just a friend.
That's all I've ever been.
Cause you don't know me.
I never knew the art of making love,
Though my heart ached with love for you.
Afraid and shy, I let love pass me by.
And the chance that you might love me too.
You put your hand in mine
And then you say, "Goodbye."
I watched you walk away,
And then I start to cry
I only wish you know
That I'm in love with you
No, you don't know me
