Lisa GoulderLisa Goulder, Hurry My Heart ( 2001) - Bay Area resident Lisa Goulder will fool you with Hurry My Heart, because the singer has a big, Nashville-style voice.

Hurry My Heart is a well-produced album, with a 100% refined sound. The album was produced by husband Pete Elman, who has been making music in the Bay Area since 1977. In addition to Lisa on vocals and keyboards and Pete on synthesizers and programming, the other musicians include Stef Burns on acoustic and electric guitars, Steve Cameron on drums, and Mark Levine on bass.

Lisa GoulderLisa grew up in a musical family in Cleveland, Ohio, and followed her muse to the Berklee College of Music, where she spent a year studying piano, voice, and composition. Inspired by such acts as Laura Nyro, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the Beatles (recalls Lisa, "I must have wanted to be in a band, but it really didn't occur to me - girls weren't in bands back then. I just wanted to marry Paul."), Lisa settled in the Bay Area, where she fronted the touring combo, Dreamland.

There's more than a hint of Nashville in songs like "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" and "I Imagine You." Yet you'll also find Lisa leaning into a progressive jazz beat on "Friday's Child."

Hurry My Heart is a polished and professional production, one that will be the envy of many aspiring musicians.
