Lisa Shaw at Joe's Pub

That voice you recognize but whose name escapes you, you’ve been dancing to her voice night after night, at pool parties in South Beach and in clubs in Manhattan— She’s got this buttery, sexy alto, so smooth and easy— She’s got sweet, breezy soul.

That would be Lisa Shaw, the Canadian songstress probably best known for her work on the contagious track “Always,” from the Naked Music compilation series – which have often seemed an outgrowth of the legendary Sunday night Body and Soul parties in downtown Manhattan. Having worked with Miguel Migs, Andy Caldwell, and Blue Six, and many others known for their melange of house, electronica, funk and soul, Ms. Shaw’s sultry voice is ideally suited for those emotion-rich recordings which carry you from club-late mornings into sun-drenched afternoons.

Primarily a release party for her debut CD Cherry, Ms. Shaw’s recent gig at Joe’s Pub, complete with full live band, found her singing the title cut as well as “Born to Fly” and several other tracks from this long-awaited showcase for that well-loved voice. But it was “Always” which brought the crowd to its feet – and brought to mind again those days and nights when everyone in the vicinity had succumbed to Ms. Shaw’s soulful, sexy groove. Good times, no question.
