About Lisa Matassa
At age 19, Lisa Matassa snagged a recording contract under the stage name Lysa Lynn, with the independent label Emergency Records which specialized in producing 1980s dance-pop sensations like recording artist Shannon’s dance anthem, “Let The Music Play.” Lisa herself enjoyed some early notoriety with two singles, 1987’s “I’ve Got the Hots For You” and 1988’s “Rock Me Baby.” Both singles got national and international airplay and reached the Top 10 on the Dance Music Charts. During this time, Matassa performed numerous shows alongside artists like Taylor Dayne, Brenda K. Starr, Judy Torres, and TKA to name a few.
Lisa eventually put her music career on the backburner to become a wife and mother of two on New York’s Long Island. Now at 40 and with stunning good looks, Lisa is ready to conquer the music scene once again with her own unique style that she lovingly calls, "Long Island Country." With two-time Grammy nominated Executive Producer and writer, Bobby “Guy” Graziose at the helm and collaboration by Producers Joey Sykes (Meredith Brooks, Third Eye Blind, Don Henley) and Tony Bruno (Joan Jett, Enrique Iglesias, Rihanna) Lisa has just released the single, "I Don’t Feel Anything," from her soon-to-be-released Extended Play (EP) album, Me Time. Me Time is an inspired musical compilation of strong, rock-based empowering songs with country undertones.
Lisa is currently recording her much anticipated EP, Me Time, at the legendary Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, NY where Long Island music legends like Billy Joel, Mariah Carey and Taylor Dayne have also recorded. Me Time will be released independently through It Is What It Is Records on March 31, 2011, and will be available through iTunes, CD Baby, ReverbNation, Amazon and Music Choice.
