On the 30th of March I’ve been asked to engineer on a simple piano and vocals session at Alice’s Loft Music but little did I know what mind-blowing talent was about to come through the doors!
A very young, shy and very well mannered girl came in, introduced herself, sat down at the piano and proceeded to sparkle aural fairy dust. A haunting and majestic voice came out of this 17-year-old that I never heard before. Lizbet Sempa’s voice is young yet mature, wise, graceful and experienced. How can anyone so young sound so old?
Throughout the one-day session, we recorded each song twice – once live at the piano for the video cameras, and once for the album release. Many times I found myself forgetting my duties as an engineer, loosing myself completely in Lizbet’s enchanting voice, playing and lyrics which are way too deep and insightful for her age![nggallery id=16]
I cannot tell you how proud I am to be able to say that I had worked with this extraordinary artist. Lizbet Sempa will no doubtably shoot to stardom. She has already conquered SoundCloud with 255,000 followers and nearly 60,000 plays with hundreds of comments from other who fell under Lizbet’s spell.
The recording was for Lizbet’s upcoming EP release Indirect Thoughts which is scheduled for later this year. Here is one of the live videos that was shot that day for a song called On These Hills:
And here’s is Mistakes from Lizbet’s SoundCloud:
