lisa-biales-beat-of-my-heart-cd-coverIt was 70 years in the making…

A few years ago Lisa Biales found a 78rpm record that her mom recorded in 1947. “Alberta Roberts 02-20-47” was hand written on the record. “Hearing my mother’s voice after all these years brought a chill to the bone. I realized that I had to put her song on this project.” On Lisa’s new album, THE BEAT OF MY HEART, Lisa’s mother’s voice from the old record is heard on the first verse of the song, then Lisa takes over, breathing new life into what her mother recorded a lifetime ago.

Seventy years later, to the day, on 02-20-17, Lisa’s new album will be released. On this, her 9th album, Lisa honors her mother, and delivers a powerful set of unforgettable songs. “Serving up a set of solid show room blues, this set takes flight and never stops to refuel. A winner throughout.” – Midwest Record 

Lisa’s 2014 BELLE OF THE BLUES album, produced by EG Kight, was nominated for a Blues Blast award for “Acoustic Blues Album of the Year.” Known in her early career as a folk singer and songwriter, Biales has grown into a “down home contemporary acoustic blues artist.”

Her 2012 release, JUST LIKE HONEY,  landed on the Blues, Americana, and Roots charts at #2, #14, and #13 respectively.

In 2010 Francis Ford Coppola cast Biales in his film, TWIXT, where she had a speaking part, and also performed a song. Biales also portrayed the beloved Patsy Cline in the two-woman play “Always, Patsy Cline” to a week of sold-out shows.

Peach Pickin' MamasThe Peach Pickin’ Mamas, the duo of EG Kight and Lisa Biales, was formed in 2013, after the two realized how much fun they have sharing the stage. EG produced Lisa’s last two albums, and the latest was nominated for “Acoustic Album of the Year.”

Spending long hours in the studio, yet still enjoying every moment, showed them that what they have is a rootsy chemistry. They’ve co-written several songs, and plan to write more.

After sharing the stage on the spur of the moment several times, the two soon started planning such scenarios, and ventured out under the new name. And the first few shows proved successful. The spontaneity of their shows is one of the many highlights, along with their harmonies, and humorous personalities.

With several mini-tours behind them, the pair looks forward to future events.
