2 min read

2014 was clearly the year of Lisa Stansfield. After a long absence from the world of recorded music, the Grammy nominated, multi BRIT, Ivor Novello and Silver Clef Award winner returned in grand style; her latest studio album “Seven” charted all over Europe, in the Top 15 in both UK and Germany, and was followed by an sold-out tour all over Europe as well as the remix album “Seven+”.

Recorded in Lisa’s hometown Manchester at Bridgewater Hall on September 7, 2014 during her European Tour, “Live In Manchester” presents the great pop and soul singer in front of an enthusiastic audience, at ease with herself and her music.

Lisa Stansfield and her talented band, including songwriting partner and husband Ian Devaney (whose credits include “The Bodyguard” and “Indecent Proposal” soundtracks), as well as a horn section, performed her hit songs including “All Around The World” and “Change” along with new tracks from her latest album such as “Can’t Dance” and “So Be It”.

Filmed by Tim Sidwell (“Celebrating Jon Lord”) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios, this impressive performance clearly marked Lisa’s return to the international stage and confirmed her status as one of the UK’s premier recording artists.

“Live In Manchester” will be released on 2CD, DVD and Blu-ray on August 28th, 2015 on earMUSIC. The bonus material, an interview of more than 25 minutes, gives great, in-depth insight into the artist’s mind and completes the high quality production.

Lisa’s career has spanned over 3 decades, boasting sales of nearly 20 million records and a string of international top 10 hits including: “All Around The World”, “Change”, “All Woman” and “Someday”.
