Muzikreviews.com says “Brigantino has been put on all kinds of “artist to watch” lists. You should do more than watch. You should listen and then re-listen and re-listen again. Wonder Wheel will touch you, entertain you, and refresh you.“ Women of Substance Radio says “Lisa is one of the most versatile songwriters we’ve heard. She is a true artist who has mastered countless styles of writing, singing and performing. This New Yorker moves effortlessly from a sensitive acoustic ballad to an in-your-face bluesy romp without skipping a beat.” KRUU-FM says “Lisa’s voice moves fluidly from style to style, earthy on the blues and rocker songs, liquid sweet on the acoustic and pop tunes.” Lisa continues to tour regionally in support of “Wonder Wheel” and is currently recording her next album with an anticipated release of late 2014/early 2015.
