About the Artist
Who is Lisa Jackson? Punk. Rock. Glam. Fearless. Lyrics which praise the bravery of those who dare to be different. A backing band pulsing with raw energy and intensely emotional musicianship. Lisa Jackson is a ROCK STAR in super italicized, capital letters. Lisa Jackson is an Icon waiting to happen. Combining a punk rock energy with an arena-rock theatricality you can't help but raise your lighters to, Lisa Jackson & Girl Friday are quickly becoming one of the most buzzed about bands in New York City - playing to packed clubs all around town, selling more CD's than they can produce, and attracting the most diverse, loyal fan following a band could hope for. Lisa and the boys have started to take the rest of the country by storm, too. Whether headlining major outdoor shows in Minneapolis and Milwaukee with The Psychedelic Furs, Pat Benatar and The Motels, playing top-rated stages like The Fox Theatre in Colorado with Nina Storey, or just tearing through every down-and-dirty rock 'n' roll dive from Boston to Chicago to Los Angeles, Lisa Jackson and the boys are spreading their speaker-shattering sound all over the country. In Girl Friday, Lisa has found a backing band rivaled only by Elvis's Attractions or Bowie's Spiders From Mars. With Steve Lavner maniacally pounding on the keys with virtuoso mad scientist chops, Jeff Gurner laying down the heaviest of pockets on the bass, and Freddie "Boom Boom" Sanchez delivering both slam and swagger behind the drums, Girl Friday lays the perfect foundation for Lisa's Townshend-inspired guitar and powerhouse vocal delivery. After selling countless copies of their last full-length album, I-AM-A-OK, Lisa and the band are currently recording their third album in Tuxedo Park, NY and at studio405 in Manhattan. In the meantime, the best place to hear the new material is where Lisa Jackson & Girl Friday do what they do best: On stage. Loud. Live, Live Live.
