Album Notes
Lisa has been a singer, worship leader, session vocalist, vocal coach for over three decades and her first solo release has been that long in the waiting. Concert and worship ministry has been at the forefront of her music world since high school, but recording her own music wasn't the priority until recent encouragement and provision led her to partner with producer/arranger Aaron Doerr.The Shadowland project is an effort to give life and beauty to several stories-turned-songs that reflect on her life's journey and relationship with the Lord.

By Heart follows the title track, Shadowland, both of which are personal stories of some of the harder parts of life that ultimately shine a spotlight on the healing and joy that is only found in Jesus Christ and a life surrendered to Him.


It’s often when you lose a parent or someone close to you that you think about the deeper meaning--the memories (good and bad) and how their life came to shape yours in so many ways. A year or two after my dad died, I found myself in that introspective place and woke up in the middle of the night with memories pouring into my head and heart. Much of it was hard and full of grief beyond the physical loss of my dad. It was grief over years of relationship stolen away, sorrow over the way it shadowed all of my mother’s life and the way it changed the complexion of my life as well as that of my sister. It was all so vivid I had to get up at that moment and put it down on paper. The words became a song soon after and it is a reflection of some of the hard things from my growing-up years.

​But while this could be a really sad story, I know the ending. It’s colored with sadness for all the years lost, but still full of forgiveness that brings freedom and gratitude—that of my mom and my sister and I, but most of all the forgiveness and grace of God who promises to work everything together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. He makes all things new. He gives hope in the darkest night. That’s the best and most important part of this story.
