Lisa T - What Am I Missin'?

For her first release of 2022, Glastonbury-bound Manchester artist Lisa T is making waves with an emotional co-write. Penned with multi-award-winning artist Gary Quinn, and produced by DJ, producer, and artist in his own right Tim Prottey-Jones, What Am I Missin’? is a reflective, emotive and vulnerable ballad sure to tug at even the hardest of heartstrings.

 

“We started out writing about the emotional turmoil that is involved with being in a relationship with someone who doesn’t listen. They disregard how you feel and what you say,” Lisa explains.

 

I first heard this as a live performance when I saw Lisa supporting Louise Parker in Manchester back in February. Just an acoustic performance back then, the song made an impression and when Lisa asked me to review it, I was thrilled. It’s the overthinkers’ anthem, a midnight plea for clarity, and something I definitely relate to (although I wish I didn’t!). Lisa’s vocals are spectacular – barely restrained emotion throughout reveals her deep connection to the lyrics, and her pain is emitted through her performance. The production is very contemporary pop-country – typical of Prottey-Jones, and perfect for this transcendent ballad.

 

“The hook is hard-hitting: you tell them to leave, secretly hoping they won’t listen as usual – but this time they do. They go and don’t return leaving you wondering ‘why’?” – Lisa T

 

This summer Lisa will be appearing at both the Glastonbury Festival and the Black Deer Festival as part of the Magic Teapot touring company. As well as her music, Lisa is well known for her mental health expertise. She is recognised by the BBC as their ‘Mental Health Expert’ and has been part of their regional team for over a year with her own weekly slot ‘Monday Motivation with Lisa T’, where she shares wellbeing tips with listeners. A fully accredited Mindfulness Teacher and Mental Health First Aider, Lisa also supports fellow musicians with their mental health through her position as ‘Wellbeing Specialist’ with Belles and Gals.
