Liza Lee the indie jazz artist takes her first official foray out of the jazz realm and into the land of original Alt-Pop songs!!!

The "Houses of Detention" EP features four original alt-pop songs + the "Extra Goodies" include three previously released original Jazz songs and one unreleased cover the group "The Gossips'" song "Fire With Fire".


Recording artist, performer and composer Liza Lee is a breakout talent rapidly making her mark on todayâs jazz scene. Her personal and haunting musical interpretations exhibit an emotional vulnerability laced with a confident understanding of lifeâs realities.

Lizaâs (pronounced the same way as the famous Minnelli) highly praised first CD, Scarlet Mark, was released on the Jazz Doll label. Her latest project, Anima, was released on January 27, 2009. Anima has since been re-released on The âArt of Lifeâ label. Lee is the first female vocalist to be signed to âArt of Life Recordsâ. As on her previous album, the material she has chosen for Anima is fresh, unpredictable and innovative. It also includes some of her highly praised yet controversial original compositions.

Anima is an extremely personal CD. In 2006, shortly after the release of Scarlet Mark, Liza suffered a stroke. Having made a full comeback, Liza Lee has decided to donate the proceeds from Anima to The Society For Women's Health Research (SWHR), a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the health of all women through research, education and advocacy ( This life altering experience inspired the title of the CD, Anima, which comes from the concept of the Anima and Animus by Carl Jung.

âAnima represents the feminine whisper inside of a patriarchal society,â Liza explains. âThis is especially significant to me because this CD will benefit SWHR.â

âThe doctors did not know if I would ever be able to sing or perform again,â explains Liza. âNow that I am better, I feel that it is my job to help increase awareness about the dire need for funds to research how illness, disease and medications uniquely affect womenâs bodies.â

Most of the songs on Anima were composed or co-composed by women including Joni Mitchellâs âBlue,â âA Thousand Kisses Deepâ by Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robinson, and Kate Bushâs âWow.â Liza Lee is particularly haunting on âSilver Daggerâ and âRevolving Mattress,â a song about confounding expectations and âSorry Childâ an original about the cyclical nature of drug and psychological abuse. She also presents a unique and memorable interpretation of the Peggy Lee hit âIs That All There Is.â Her supporting cast includes such notables as pianists Bruce Barth, Michael Kanan, David Cook and Art Hirahara, bassist Pat OâLeary, drummers Michael Petrosino and Eric Halvorson, the reeds of Scott Robinson, Jim Clouse and Adam Kolker, and guitarist Kelsey Warren. Singer Shayna Steele duets with Liza on âCalling You.â

When the time to record her first album arrived, the result was Scarlet Mark. As with all of Liza Leeâs music, the songs dealt with aspects of her life. She drew from such diverse writers as the Beatles, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Tori Amos, Ani DiFranco, Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael, in addition to her own title cut.

Liza has just released her first all-original alternative-pop music project, Houses of Detention EP + Extra Goodies, she recorded this project with producer, guitarist and composer Joe Davi, whose credits include work with Mya (Interscope), Akon (Universal), Foxy Brown (Universal), Noreaga (Penalty), Big Punisher (Loud), Kelis (Jive Records), Remy Ma (Universal) as well as Neyo and Jennifer Hudson. For the future, Liza has been busy recording an original jazz-pop project with Joe entitled, The Lover-Less Chronicles as well as writing songs and lyrics for other artists.

Liza Lee is an important voice of the 21st Century. Her continual evolution and development, which are well displayed on Anima, are fascinating to watch and her thought-provoking music is always memorable. She has proven herself a consistently intriguing vocalist and a significant addition to the current music scene.
