"The Right Way" - Lisa Crawley | Review

Lisa Crawley brings listeners new single "The Right Way" which is a beautiful narrative single about doing the right things the right way.

This is a single for the overthinkers. It is soothing and simple. It is almost too perfect to be a song about not having the right thing to say. Crawley has a very nonchalant way about her singing, it is effortless and floating. I am in love with this single.

“The Right Way” from indie-pop chanteuse Lisa Crawley was co-written and produced with Grammy-nominated Rob Kleiner. Lisa and Rob bonded over Jon Brion, The Dresden and The Office (UK). These are just some of the iconic cultural influences that forged the creative process behind “The Right Way”.

‘The Right Way’ is about longing for the confidence and articulation to say the right words at the right time, particularly within relationships, rather than letting self-doubt and anxiety get in the way. But even more so, the song is about trying to live and accept that it might always be that way to some extent, and that that’s okay. The music video represents this with different versions of myself self-reflecting, by both taking a literal look in the mirror and turning inward to find the answers. "

Prolific New Zealand born, now LA based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Lisa Crawley grew up teaching the other kids in her class how to play the recorder. Three EP’s, two albums and numerous singles later, she’s charming audiences across national and international stages performing her extensive repertoire of original music. Together with her natural ear for music and a refreshingly honest onstage presence, she produces heartfelt, authentic pop songs.

The push and pull of her musical vision has taken her the world over, seeing her grace stages in the UK, Asia, USA, Europe, SXSW, Canadian Music Week, and was selected twice for the songwriters residency at the prestigious Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Three times nominated for the Silver Scroll award, the talented writer has been heard across the world on various movies, commercials and television shows – most recently on US TV shows ‘Stumptown’, ‘Proven Innocent’ and award winning film ‘WARU’.

Creatively insatiable, the last few years has seen Crawley finding time in between writing and composing her own music (recent singles include ‘Show You What Love Is‘ and Tragedy Boy’), arranging and performing her own songs for Symphony Orchestras and opening for the likes of Suzanne Vega, John Mayer, Jools Holland, Paul Weller, to name a few. A natural collaborator, Lisa has worked on projects with Tim Finn, Greg Johnson, Hugo Race and created her original show ‘Elizabeth’ with Bullet Heart Club (Daffodils),

Recently signed to ‘Think Music’ licensing company and now based in Los Angeles, Lisa has been writing and recording new material and recently returned to New Zealand to star as ‘GIRL’ in the Tony Award winning musical ‘Once’, gaining rave reviews.
