Lisa Richard makes a connection with her single and video Together — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“Being together is always my favourite place to be, and that is the feeling I wanted to encompass in this song,” the Halifax country singer says. “We wanted to remind people of that special feeling we all get when we are with the people we love and care about — family, friends, loved ones, and the joy of spending time in places that make us happy. The take-home message in this song is to not take any of these things for granted, and to enjoy every minute of being together.”
Written in pre-pandemic times, it’s impossible to ignore the melancholy mood of sadness tucked over all of us like a cloud as we forge through — Together is a reminder of gentler, simpler, and simply better times. “I had no idea (the song) would be so relevant two years later,” she says. “Together was written a few years ago with my co-writers Rick Tiger and Jeff Wanex in Nashville. We wrote it after one of my trips to Europe where I got to perform in Budapest. I remember thinking that, although the majority of the audience didn’t understand English, they could fully understand the music I was playing. It’s true what they say … Music is a universal language!”
Nominated for Country Artist of the Year at the 2018 Music Nova Scotia Awards, and selected for the Songbird Super Series Showcase at the 2019 East Coast Music Awards, and the 2019 WSM Grand Ole Opry Radio Songbird Jubilee in Nashville, Richard has a considerable resume of industry recognition. Her 2017 offering Tangled Up showcased her illustrious singing chops, and earned the budding country star airplay in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and beyond. A native of New Brunswick, the troubadour has spent much of her tenure in the industry wowing audiences and commanding stages all over the world.
After spending the past few years recording and releasing singles, Richard is gearing up to release her sophomore album later this year. Watch Together above, hear more from Lisa Richard below, and get together with Lisa Richard on her website, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
