LISA BOUCHELLE (with JOHN POPPER) Web-Exclusive Interview with M Music & Musicians magazine publisher, Merlin David

How did the EP Lipstick Tomboy evolve?
We put this collection of songs together as a bundle that was digitally downloadable through Amazon, iTunes. We picked four songs to provide variety. The song "Only the Tequila Talkin'" was a duet with John Popper from Blues Traveler. It's a song I wrote with John Eddie. We asked John (Popper), and he seemed really into it. It's a fun song, a drinking song. I went out to Seattle to record it. We have a remake Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind"-one of my favorite songs. "Heart versus Mind" is a song I wrote with Jeff Trott [Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, Colbie Caillat]-out in LA. It's a song I wrote about when your heart arguing with your mind. I thought about so many people I know. With Jeff Trott road testing the song, so many people were able to relate to that concept. Business or love, your mind tells you one thing, but your heart tells you something else. I felt like the EP needed the song. So much of my writing is introspective, and I wanted to do something fun. "Luv is Supposed 2B Fun" has a steel drum, and it's a party kind of thing. Yes, love is complicated but just have fun with it. It's a light song. We tracked the songs on the East Coast, and out in LA and Seattle.
Is there a full album coming soon?
Right now, it's just the EP. We do have these songs and others featured on a Fan Club-only cd called A Whole Lot of Highway-10 songs. In the bridge of the title song, it references a mixed up Lipstick Tomboy hitting the scene-which refers to me. I thought it was a cool description. I've done so much touring-some is glamorous at times, but the first tour I did was in my car-12,000 miles. I opened for Blues Traveler in 2007, and I drove it. Even though it was glamourous when I was on stage, I was driving and trying to fend for myself-living out of canned goods. That's really the tomboy aspect of it.
How did the idea of "Only the Tequila Talkin'" come to you?
I wanted to write a song with John Eddie. I'd been opening for him locally, and working with him, and he said, ‘Yeah, let's write something together.' He's out of Nashville, and he wrote "Lowlife" for Kid Rock. He was writing all these clever hooks. It just came to me, ‘It was only the tequila talkin', shoulda took it with a grain of salt.' So I called John and said, ‘Listen to this hook-it sounds like something you would write.' And he said, ‘I can't believe I didn't write it.' We got together and wrote the song. He's so poetic-such a good writer. He came up with the line in the second verse: ‘Coyote ugly on the SpectraVision in the not so Super 8.' Since I couldn't top that, I wrote: ‘He said the sex would be amazin' but it really wasn't that great.' (Laughs)
When did you write "Tequila?"
Just before the first record. The first version didn't have enough harmony or interaction. We needed to remix it with a fun beat and maybe some handclaps. The song got a lot of attention when I was playing it live. We felt the time was right because it's a chick singing a drinking song, and it's a fun song. A song like this, now, is rare. In the old days, with Kitty Wells, it might have happened, but not now in modern country. But we did it, and it's doing so well on Spotify. We're so happy people are digging the song. And the video is an old time western scene, like Bonanza-it's really fun.
What did John Popper bring to this song?
He's got that attitude. You can give him a line to sing, and he makes it his own. With his voice-he's so real about it. He brings his own perspective to everything he sings. And the harmonica playing-is like no one else. He brings so much life, especially to a fun song like this one. We knew each other from the tour. They took me under their wing. They would have me up on stage every night, and we'd be singing songs like "The Joker," and people would say ‘you both have such good chemistry together on stage.' That helps the song sound real and authentic. The video represents how we perform live, and how much fun we have. He's from that jam band world, and they are all about living in the moment on these live shows. He and I have so much fun performing it live. We had a good time recording it in Seattle. The Blues Traveler drummer, Brendan Hill, played on the track. I'm hoping we can perform it this year at some bigger venues.

Read a selection of recent interviews and EP reviews, here:

Veteran writer Robert Oermann chose Lisa's duet with Popper as his coveted Music Row Disc of the Day, praising, "She sings in a sunny, bright soprano and the tune is a bopping ditty about two boozers falling for each other. Duet partner Popper is best known as the frontman for Blues Traveler. He adds some much needed soul and grit to the proceedings. Highly listenable." Other critics have described the EP as "full of country rock riffs and Americana influenced melodies. Her powerful vocals and genre-bending guitars are captivating..."

More About Lisa Bouchelle:
Lisa Bouchelle is an artist on the move. Not only is her career on a strong upward spiral, but it seems she personally never stops moving, as she averages over 200 shows a year. She has toured and/or opened for artists such as Meat Loaf, Blues Traveler, Train, Ted Nugent, Bryan Adams, Don Felder of The Eagles, Ingrid Michaelson, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, The Wailers, and many others.
Lisa's independent releases have reached #1 on two indie charts, and #4 on the college charts.  And while she may still be an underground artist to many fans, she has the respect of her fellow musicians, as evidenced by the fact that her recordings have contributions from John Popper and Brendan Hill of Blues Traveler, Rob Hyman of The Hooters, the legendary David Bromberg, chart-topping World Music artist Erin Hill, guitarist Bobby Bandiera (Bon Jovi), violinist Lorenza Ponce (Sheryl Crow), and hit songwriters such as John Eddie (Kid Rock) and Glen Burtnik (Styx),
Lisa started singing at the age of four, because although her parents loved her deeply, the only time they would stop arguing was when little Lisa sang. So she sang every chance she got, feeling it was her job to keep harmony in the family. Now, after losing both her parents, she still sings every chance she gets, whether it be driving thousands of miles across the US on her own, which she's done several times while doing solo tours, or playing in the train station for tips. In fact, she was interviewed on NPR Radio about her experiences "busking" in the Philadelphia train station.
Lisa also managed to find time to create and host the TV show "Rock Star Kitchen," in which she schmoozes with platinum selling artists in her kitchen, talking about music and touring, while cooking up their favorite dishes. The show quickly became the top-rated original content show on The Comcast Network in the Philadelphia region, and is currently in talks for national and international syndication. Lisa also made an appearance on the hit TV show Gossip Girl, and had a starring role in an off-Broadway production. Read more about Bouchelle's inspiring journey, here:
