The Verdict 4 out of 5




The Artist I recently checked out the latest release from singer/songwriter Lisa Banco entitled Momentum released in 2011. Bianco and her band hails fro New York.


The band Bianco brings to the table some impressive players. I would say this band clearly possesses above average playing and as a writer she possesses above average writing abilities. You will find many impressive chops and top flight writing styles presented along the way. Timing is spot on within the genera. Bianco holds her own remarkably on vocals and brings a bit of attitude to the table. The music possesses a very marketable, Power Pop sound dabbling a bit Alternative Rock or just Modern Rock. All in all great music to do a Sunday morning work-out to. Music is timeless, passionate, emotional, defiant and easy to groove to. Songs will remind you of Shania Twain, Alanis Moriissette, Cheryl Crown and even Pat Benatar. The songs Simply put - all songs are well rounded statements with amazing highs and powerful lows. There’s nothing like a good musical production to fill your sonic space, this is definitely one of them. Simply put, very much like life itself this CD personifies the human experience, with music that are 100% honest, pure and straight to the point. The production professional grade from start to finish with crystal clear recording quality. There's not many songs you can listen to time and time again. The good remarkably consistent, well rounded musical production. Honorable mentions go out to the fiery vocal presence of Lisa Bianco armed with her amazing spirit and a hot band. The bad CD feels a bit short to me. I got to the last track expecting at least 3 more songs. The ugly Nothing to report. 


The verdict Momentum by Lisa Bianco is an impressive collection of music. She is a marquee talent and her musical personality shines with a rare brilliance comparable to a priceless gem. It clearly sets a standard within this marketable genre. Lisa Bianco is one artist that will inspire many a female out there, but is also designed for anyone who likes catchy Power Pop music with a side of Italian Rock' n Roll attitude. The Bottom Line This CD is comparable to breaking up with someone - in a good way. Every now it's an absolute pleasure to get the raw truth out, stand up for what's right and say - enough is enough.
