stellar accomplishment after another following the release of her Move On recording and major touring and festival appearances. The end of the year accolades keep rolling in, so we thought we’d give you a quick run-down on what an amazing year it has been:

  • Move On receives steady action throughout the year in both the Living Blues and Roots Music Charts and international radio play
  • Lisa is a featured story in America Blues Scene online magazine
  • Lisa Mann & Her Really Good Band play the Blues Bender Festival in Las Vegas and have been invited back in 2015
  • Move On is selected by the Cascade Blues Association as its representative for The Blues Foundation’s Best Self-Produced CD competition
  • Lisa receives three Muddy Awards for Contemporary Band of the Year, Bass Player, and Northwest Recording of the Year for Move On
  • Lisa is named the Sean Costello Rising Star Award winner by Blues Blast online magazine and she performs at the Awards Ceremony in Champaign, Illinois playing with Andy T and Josh Hoyer
  • Move On is named the Blues Rock Album of the Year by Blues 411 online magazine

Congratulations Lisa! You make Portland and the CBA proud!

(Please note, due to her nomination for the Blues Music Awards, her entry as the CBA’s representative in the Best Self-Produced CD competition has become ineligible. That’s just how the rules are written and we were aware of this possibility in advance.)
