Lisa Matassa's New EP, SOMEBODY'S BABY, Resonating With Radio & Fans

Available Today At Amazon, iTunes & CDBaby

"The disc knocked me out." - 650 AM WSM's Bill Cody
Nashville, TN (December 4, 2012) -- Lisa Matassa's new EP, SOMEBODY'S BABY, is proving its depth as it resonates at radio and with fans.  The disc is available today at Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby.

With a voice that FAME writer Mark S. Tucker calls "big, brassy, clear and confident" that "takes no prisoners, no guff," Lisa's EP "rocks the block, fills up the neighborhood and starts heading for the outlands to make converts to the cause."  Tucker adds, "Lisa Matassa can count herself a lead member of the pack of arena country anthemic rockers."

The enhanced disc, comprised of seven songs and a bonus music video, was produced by Tony Bruno (Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias) and recorded in Nashville and New York.  The Long Island songstress contributed three tracks: "Wouldn't You Like to Know," "Girl with a Rock 'n Roll Heart" and "Learning as You Grow."  Other writers include Bryan Adams, Kelly Archer, Dolly Parton and Don Rollins.

Billboard.com's Chuck Dauphin notes that Lisa's "vivacious spirit" comes across on SOMEBODY'S BABY.  "Whether it be the up-tempo sheen of the title cut or the warmth exuded on ballads like 'Heaven' and the stirring 'Learning As You Grow,' she is a star on the rise."

Matassa's first single from the disc, the title track, is moving steadily up the Billboard/BDS Indicator Chart ( #49 ) and is a Top 10 hit in Europe.  Her "Somebody's Baby" video has already garnered nearly 2 MILLION YouTube views.  The visually-enticing piece, directed by hotshot Traci Goudie (Hunter Hayes, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin), is included on the enhanced EP.  Fans will also find another special bonus: Matassa has included the audio track for her favorite holiday number, "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)."  The Christmas Song video was last year's #1 Holiday Video on CMT.  It will air again on the network this month, as well as on GAC and TCN.  Radio can catch the holiday spirit via PlayMPE and can access the full album at AIRPLAY DIRECT.

Graduated from Penn State University in 1983 and landed my first broadcasting job at the flagship station to SUN Radio Network in St. Petersburg, FL as a producer of talk radio. In 3 months advanced to a network producer, then on air as a national eventually local weather reporter for the Tampa Bay area. Held a position in management as a trainer to new hosts and producers and later Affiliate Relations Manager, eventually in 1990 started hosting, Talkin' Pets. Left SUN radio several years later and worked with USA Radio Networks for 1 year. I worked with Business TalkRadio & Lifestyle TalkRadio Networks for19 years under the title of V.P. Affiliate Relations and Programming, later worked with Genesis Communications until starting a new network ATRN.  Currently working with GAB Radio Network and with Josh Leng at Talk Media Network.  I am still hosting the largest and longest running pet radio and internet show in the country, Talkin' Pets, for the past 29 years... My one true passion in life is to help to educate the world through interviews with celebrities like Betty White, Tippi Hedren, Bob Barker, Linda Blair and others, authors, foundations and organizations like the ASPCA, LCA, HSUS, AHA, WSPA on the ways to make this world a better place for all animals and mankind whom all share this very fragile and mysterious planet called earth. This is the only home we have so we all need to learn how to share and maintain it so that life for us all continues and evolves forever...
