“Live Your Life” by Lisa Redford

Hello Friends:

Live Your Life by Lisa Redford is the eleventh song to be featured on my Blog as part of my mission to provide you with inspiration through songs that have been performed by musicians on Alive with Clive over the past couple of years.

Lisa performed Live Your Life during her interview on Alive with Clive on April 24, 2008.

Lisa is a versatile singer-songwriter from Norwich, UK, whose music has been described as “delicate acoustic roots pop with heartfelt lyrics, gorgeous melodies and stunning vocals.”  Influenced by singer-songwriters such as Carole King, James Taylor, Neil Young, Chrissie Hynde and Shawn Colvin, Lisa began songwriting after singing with a band at major London venues, and has since played at several established venues in Europe and New York in the company of many well-known musicians.

In 2006, in an interview for the Italian Magazine, JamOnline, when asked about the songs she writes, Lisa had this to say:

Songs sometimes come really easily, it’s as if they seem to write themselves.  When I feel really inspired and have some words and a title, sometimes the song can be very quick to write and finish.  I can come up with melodies pretty quickly and it’s exciting when you write something you’re really happy with and you can’t wait to play it to people. . . .

My songs are very personal and are mostly about what’s going on in my life.  I’ve also written about people I know and situations I’ve gone through. I am also inspired by books and films that have captured my imagination but there’s usually always a very personal strand running through the songs.  Sometimes it feels like you’re really exposing yourself in front of an audience and I perform solo too which is even more bare.  I love performing though so I just really get into it and I think people really respond if they feel you are putting something of yourself in the music.

Live Your Life is from Lisa’s third, highly-acclaimed, CD, Clouds with Silver, which was released in 2008, after the release of her second CD, Lost Again, in 2005, and her first, Slipstream, in 2003

Live Your Life is a song that shines a light on the futility of remaining trapped in one’s comfort zone and disregarding one’s intuition to avoid failure and disappointment, yet it also provides a consoling dose of inspiration for those who have stepped out of their comfort zone and been met by broken promises, failure and disappointment.  The underlying message of the song is that life is to be embraced not only for the rewards it has the potential to provide but also for whatever setbacks may be encountered along the way.

Here are few lines from the lyrics to Live Your Life:

Live your life

Don’t ever choose to hide

Don’t let nothing stand in your way

And don’t you care

We all know life’s unfair, sometimes

But just let it go 

Live Your Life is a great song to hear at any time, but especially after you’ve experienced a setback, failure or disappointment, for it’s sure to inspire you to persist in your quest to achieve your goal.
