"... at once a step forward for the young songwriter and a return to her roots. Crisply produced ... it eschews nearly all of the fuzziness and experimentation of some of her earlier albums and instead focuses solely on three things: voice, guitar and words ... Victoria takes her own sadness and solitary outsider-ness and creates her own unique aesthetic around it, sung in a hypnotic, fragile soprano and accompanied by carefully strummed, simple guitar."
- Bangor Daily News

"... fluctuating freely from confessional quaintness to sorrowful nostalgia, her rudimentary guitar playing makes the record that much more dynamic and organic. This is an album that should be enjoyed on a good set of headphones ... showcases the raw beauty of independent musicians who take risks for the sake of pure expression. It’s a rare sight in this digital landscape that someone would be willing to open up their heart with such conviction, but we’re all fortunate that Victoria does. It’s a work of art in its most pure and simple form ... stripped of pretension and filled to the brim with honesty and self-actualization."
- The Portland Phoenix

Lisa/Liza is the lo-fi, psych-folk recording project of Maine-based guitarist, singer and songwriter Liza Victoria. She recorded this intimate and sparse album live in one day and originally released it to fans on homemade cassettes and CDs in late 2014.

"For this record in particular I wanted the emphasis on the songwriting, maybe more than I have in the past. I wanted to be really present in my songs this time. On past albums I have had more interest in atmosphere."
- Liza Victoria

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
