All Music Guide - Jim Brenholts
Lisa Lynne Franco has had some streaks of great events and some streaks where things just did not go right. She had a recording contract with Innovative Communications in Germany and she did not care for the way they were trying to market her. She achieved some success as Celestial Winds with David Young until he got a big head and ran off with the money. When her first Windham Hill CD Daughters of the Celtic Moon came out, she was in a hospital in Florida suffering from encephalitis and was not able to enjoy its initial successes. Through all of that, she has been able to maintain a strong spirituality and integrity -- personal and artistic -- and her music has not ...

Lisa Lynne Franco has had some streaks of great events and some streaks where things just did not go right. She had a recording contract with Innovative Communications in Germany and she did not care for the way they were trying to market her. She achieved some success as Celestial Winds with David Young until he got a big head and ran off with the money. When her first Windham Hill CD Daughters of the Celtic Moon came out, she was in a hospital in Florida suffering from encephalitis and was not able to enjoy its initial successes. Through all of that, she has been able to maintain a strong spirituality and integrity -- personal and artistic -- and her music has not suffered at all. In fact, she seems to thrive on the adversity and uses her creative energy and music as therapy. Moonsongs, Franco's first CD after Young's departure, is a great example of her perseverance. The music, while somewhat melancholy and dramatic, is absolutely beautiful. Franco has the ability to translate her emotions into her sound design and to convey her spirituality to her listeners. These soundscapes are full, lush, and pastoral. Franco is telling her listeners that all will be right if she trusts God. This beautiful CD will appeal to fans of Patricia Spero, David Darling, Nancy Rumbel, and Eric Tingstad.

    Sweet, heartfelt music for quiet reflection.

    Wistful and mellow compositions for harp, recorders, other stringed instruments, and gentle percussion. Lisa Lynne Franco, aka Lisa Lynne, has only released one album of solo harp playing that I know of, ¿Quiet Heart¿; the rest are duo or ensemble recordings, and the reason is obvious: she really knows how to complement and compose for a group. Her chords, glissandos, and simple melodies provide the perfect ground for other instrumentalists to layer upon in harmony and descant, and her playing is so heartfelt and inviting that it just draws everyone else in. The resulting performances are simply lovely, time after time. Track #8 on this CD, ¿Pavane¿, was arranged by fellow harpist and composer Kim Robertson, and if you enjoy Lisa¿s work, you¿ll also like Kim¿s. Both have many releases to their name from which to choose. In tracking Lisa¿s discography, keep in mind that after the release of ¿Moonsongs¿, she eliminated the ¿Franco¿ portion of her moniker and changed her performing name simply to Lisa Lynne (perhaps to avoid confusion with German harpist Lisa Franco). Prior to ¿Moonsongs¿, Lynne also recorded several releases as part of the duo ¿Celestial Winds¿.
