Now she's free...



Lisa Gerrard is an Australian singer-songwriter best known for her unique vocal technique of 'Glossolalia' but also for being one of the emblematic members of the group 'Dead Can Dance'. Singer who can also boast of being able to sing in no less than 3 octaves !


Artist who we will find in her beginnings within a group called 'Microfilm', a group which operated at the very beginning of the 80s within the post-punk music scene in Melbourne known as 'Little Band Scene'. A group adventure that is ephemeral to say the least…


A musical scene which will still allow her to cross paths with a certain Brendan Perry, an English artist with whom she will found the group 'Dead Can Deance' shortly after. Group which will experience a much more flattering destiny than its previous group and which will produce albums of unusual originality until 1998.


It was from 1995 that she began a parallel solo career which saw her release a first album "The mirror pool", an album which would enjoy significant success. Particularly thanks to the cult title “Sanvean (I am your shadow)”, a title that is mind-blowing as much for its lyricism as for the incredible vocal performance of the singer.


New album “Duality” 3 years later in 1998 but this time in collaboration with Pieter Bourke.


But it was above all 2 years later that the singer reached the ultimate consecration in 2000 with the enormous title "Now we are free", a flagship title of her career which we will find on the soundtrack of a film no less flagship since it is 'Gladiator'.


A world of soundtracks in which we will find her many times in the years that follow, which will not prevent her from continuing to produce albums of more than certain quality at the same time.


To discover or rediscover...

Dead Can Dance adventure :


 

Tracks :



1980...the first steps of a young woman gifted in music and singing but at this stage no one knows it yet. You have to start well one day as they say...



1980...a first experience which at least allowed her to show what she was capable of. Capacities that will quickly reveal themselves to be extraordinary...



1980...the young artist quickly found herself cramped in this group. It was the meeting with Brendan Perry and the formation of the group Dead Can Dance from 1981 that changed everything...



1989...an incredible duo who will produce wonders during the 80s before the singer decides to start taking back control of her destiny at the very end of the decade...



1995...the adventure will last a few more years and it is from the middle of the 90s that the solo flight will really take place...



1995...notably thanks to this WONDER ! Here she will deliver a mind-blowing track carried by a rarely seen lyricism as well as the incredible power of a unique voice of its kind. MAS-TER-PIE-CE !



1995...very quickly she will demonstrate that evolving solo poses no problem for her and that she is entirely capable of existing on her own...



1997...who honestly would have doubted it ? Very quickly she will also begin to multiply diverse and varied partnerships like this one...



1998...partnerships which will prove to be particularly inspired and of a more than certain originality. Awesome efficiency...



1998...not only is she gifted but she will also know how to surround herself with other artists who will know how to enhance her in an ideal way...



1998...when the creative level and the voice are extraordinary the result can only be extraordinary. Which will be the case almost on every title...



1998...she will never have had an equivalent from the start of her career to this day and it may well remain like that until the end...



2000...the consecration, the real one among the general public, here it is ! It is with this title that she will win her final ticket to posterity and definitively enter the legend. MAS-TER-FUL !



2000...given the feat achieved on the previous soundtrack, she will be more and more in demand in this very particular register. The opposite would have been surprising...



2001...an improbable duet with the Breton Denez Prigent on the soundtrack of the film 'Black Hawk Down'. Improbable but once again fearsomely effective !



2001...we now find her on the soundtrack of the film 'Ali'. A soundtrack which will not remain like its best known but which is far from unworthy, that's clear...



2002...now we find her on the soundtrack of the documentary '9/11'. A documentary dedicated especially to the terrible attacks of September 11...



2003...it's the turn of the film 'Whale Rider' to benefit from all its talent thanks to this soundtrack which, like the previous ones, benefits from a very particular inspiration of which her alone has the secret...



2003...as their previous collaboration had worked particularly well, we find the duo on this new title. And as before, the magic works immediately...



2003...a soundtrack of 'Whale rider' where we will find her several times. Extremely careful work as always...



2004...with her everything seems extremely simple and fluid. And yet behind it there is a unique talent of its kind who manages to sublimate everything in a way that is incredible to say the least...



2004...collaborations which multiply with diverse and varied artists. But whoever the partner of the moment, the result is as good as it gets !



2004...it must be said that missing a title with an artist of this caliber is almost impossible. It's holy bread as they say for all those who collaborate with her...



2004...nearly 25 years of career and an already almost legendary discography. It remains to be seen whether she will be able to last like this for another 25 years...



2004...new soundtrack this time for the film 'One perfect day'. As always with her, excellent work with meticulous efficiency !



2004...it is the soundtrack of the film 'The passion of the Christ' which is now gaining popularity. The soundtracks follow one another at a speed that is now more than impressive...



2004...and one more soundtrack for this year 2004 with 'Man on fire'. A truly remarkable year in 2004 at the BO level, it is clear...



2004...because this year 2004 is not over, far from it ! It's the turn of 'Salem's lot' to benefit from this truly unique voice !



2004...another title present on 'Salem's lot'. She will have had a series of collaborations during this year of 2004 in a truly impressive way, to say the least...



2004...and it's still not over since we now find her on the soundtrack of the film 'Layer cake'! Certainly, a year 2004 which will undoubtedly remain one of its best vintages...



2005...we find her the following year on the soundtrack of 'A thousand roads' and as always the level of inspiration has not weakened one bit...



2005...when 2 gifted people meet, we imagine that the result will be up to par. And it obviously is, who could have imagined the opposite...



2005...we now find her musically illustrating the exhibition 'Ashes and Snow' by Canadian Gregory Colbert. A title that literally floats in the air like all its predecessors...



2006...we find her exceptionally solo with this new opus, almost 11 years after her previous opus. But whether alone or with others, the result is once again up to par...



2006...with her there are never any bad surprises, only good ones, whatever the era. A capacity to renew herself that is also extraordinary...



2006...each new title is a new experience that we didn't necessarily expect. One of the very few artists of the moment to be capable of it...



2006...another title whose lyricism manages to take us on board once again. And always this incredible voice capable of unique feats of their kind...



2008...here she is back in soundtrack mode this time for the film 'Playing for Charlie'. And as always the result is up to par...



2008...another special year since we find her immediately on the soundtrack of the film 'Ichi'. Very often the soundtrack will remain better known than the film itself...



2008...we are still in 2008 and we must remember that she started her career in 1980 ! Exceptional longevity for an artist who is no less exceptional...



2008...even when she plays supporting roles she still manages to illuminate the titles in which she participates in an incredible way. Who can say the same...?



2008...an exceptional new vintage for the singer with a succession of titles as inspired as each other. But how does she do it...?



2008...a year 2008 where she will once again have succeeded in demonstrating that she has no equivalent on this earth. Truly unique model...



2008...all the composers who contact her are sure that the result will greatly exceed their expectations. And they inevitably ask for more...



2008...this singer is a rough diamond that each composer cuts in their own way. But whatever the size, the brilliance of the artist in the end is astonishing every time...



2009...the years pass, just like the decades and she does not change, does not weaken, does not go out of fashion. Outside of time and space...



2009...the weight of the decades does not affect her in any way. Time slides over her in a remarkable way like water flows inexorably in rivers...



2009...as long as there are composers interested in her, she will be there. As long as her level of inspiration does not weaken, she will be there...



2009...which has been the case for quite a few years. And it might continue like this for a while...



2009...she will have crossed the 80s, then the 90s, then the 2000s with more than impressive ease. We imagine that it will be the same for the next one...



2009...her unique style being totally timeless, she is one of the very rare ones to slip through time without it affecting her in any way...



2009...what is also clear is that she intends to continue the adventure as long as possible, alone or with others...



2009...she has no worries at this level because there will always be a composer who will come and ask her to lend him her exceptional talent for the duration of a title or an album...



2009...a voice like that cannot and will never remain untapped, that's for sure. It now remains to be seen what the future holds in terms of diverse and varied partnerships...



2009...new solo album to prove once again that she is entirely capable of existing on her own. We never doubted it for a single second...



2009...a plethoric end to the 2000s in terms of titles which clearly proves that there will inevitably be a sequel to this extraordinary story...



2009...inspiration and innovation have always been the key words of her career. Two major assets that she has wielded to perfection since her beginnings...



2010...the start of a new decade which rhymes with a return to soundtrack mode this time for the film 'Ryomaden' so as not to lose contact with the world of cinema...



2010...new collaboration also so as not to lose contact with your friends. A career led in a masterful way...



2010...she has been going like this since her beginnings and nothing and no one is able to challenge her supremacy in her musical field...



2010...with her everything is fluid, light and airy. Not to mention this inspiration and this extraordinary lyricism that she masters to perfection...



2010...a banal image immediately becomes a sublimated image thanks to her voice. A power over matter and things of which she can only be proud...



2010...certainly all her titles are not necessarily Masterpieces because that would make her a real extra-terrestrial. But still...



2010...with her we come close to perfection on almost every title and even if we don't reach it on some, they are nonetheless titles that are worth the detour...



2010...a soundtrack mode where she can give the best of herself and which will have allowed certain films to have a much greater destiny than they should have...



2010...no singer from the younger generations is capable at this stage of claiming her heritage as her talent is rare...



2011...we find her on the soundtrack of the documentary 'Samsara' and once again the result is up to par. With her we are used to it...



2011...even if this soundtrack will not remain as its most famous, she is far from unworthy, that's clear. We take, we take !



2011...because even if some titles are less inspired than others, none leaves you indifferent in any case. What talent...



2011...a series of titles a little less inspired than average but which it would have been a shame to hide in any case, that's for sure...



2011...a small decline in performance which inevitably happens to the best but which nevertheless absolutely does not call into question the course of its adventure...



2012...new soundtrack this time for 'Man of Steel', one more soundtrack to add to a counter which is starting to count quite a lot. Any director now knows that a soundtrack where she is present will necessarily put their film forward, which makes her essential in this field...



2013...another high-level collaboration which once again allows the singer to show the full extent of her talent...



2013...and talent, that's not what's lacking in her, that's for sure ! A talent that does not alter despite the weight of the years...



2013...with each new decade we tell ourselves that it may be the last and that she will end up tiring at one point or another. It won't be for the 2010 decade at first glance...



2013...new soundtrack this time for 'I, Frankenstein'. She continues to chart her course in a remarkable way without anything slowing her down in any way...



2013...with her, never any approximation or title without interest. Everything is inspired and it's been like that for decades...



2013...who could have imagined that the young singer who made her debut in 1980 would still be here more than 30 years later ? Not many people, that's for sure...



2014...still from the soundtrack but this time for 'Son of God'. Even if this duo will never have managed to match 'Gladiator', what they continue to offer is far from unworthy, that's clear...



2014...we will be more than happy with it whatever happens. The quality is there and that's what matters most even if the level of inspiration is no longer quite what it used to be...



2014...the titles follow one another at an impressive speed. A discography that grows from year to year in an exponential way to say the least...



2014...and here she is again solo. A Lisa who is found on all fronts and who is incapable of stopping for a single second...



2014...a desire to always move forward and an ever-present quest for perfection in a singer who has no equal to this day...



2015...a solo shot, a shot with others, she constantly alternates in order to avoid routine and vary the pleasures as much as possible...



2015...new soundtrack this time for 'Wyld's call'. A solo shot, a multiplayer shot, a shot in soundtrack mode : his favorite triplet...



2015...and in these 3 registers she will have excelled and shone brightly. And the adventure is still not over, that’s to say...



2015...she will not have passed through any decade and will have been present each time alone or with others. What talent once again !



2015...we continue in soundtrack mode with this time 'Jane got a gun'. Who could predict at this stage a possible end to the adventure, not many people that's for sure...



2017...because she always asks for more and again and never seems to get tired or tired, which is a real feat once again...



2018...together but this time between women, and why not you might ask. She will have tried everything, experienced everything, all with undisguised pleasure...



2018...it must be said that mixing your voice and those of Bulgarian voices seemed so obvious that it could not be otherwise...



2018...she is about to end a 4th decade of her career and seems absolutely not decided to stop there. There will inevitably be a 5th decade to come...



2018...as long as she continues to have fun and above all to give it to others why would she put an end to this incredible adventure...?



2018...there will always be renowned composers to call on her and in the worst case she will go solo again if necessary...



2018...we haven't finished enjoying these intense moments of lyricism and exaltation that she has offered us since her beginnings...



2019...the end of the 2010 decade which saw him succeed in maintaining himself at the highest level with more than obvious ease...



2019...it must be said that given her talent, the opposite would have been inconceivable to say the least. There is genius in this woman...



2019...no title that she produced from start to finish is worth the detour. Especially since no two are almost alike...



2019...a decade 2010 which is not quite over and which sees her continue to produce titles of more than certain quality...



2019...we can only rejoice about it. Hoping that the next decade will be as rich in titles as this one...



2020...something promised, something due, here she is back and ready to start this new decade with the best possible will...



2020...decade after decade she continues to delight us all thanks to this still exceptional voice. We definitely want more...



2021...she absolutely does not seem to have decided to stop partnerships in any way whatsoever. We are also reassured at this level...



2021...she really has the flair for finding composers who will enhance her and allow her to use her voice in the best way...



2021...she is already 5 decades into her career and time has not affected her in any way, except perhaps physically. But no one escapes that...



2021...she will amaze us until the end, that's clear. Always where you don't necessarily expect her and always just as effective, a real joy...



2021...partnership, BO, nothing will change during this 2020 decade at first glance. We'll just see if she decides to come back solo as well...



2022...for the moment she favors partnerships and it succeeds as always. But everything works out for her anyway...



2022...especially since she will feel less and less alone because other artists from the same era as her have decided to come back in mass...



2022...an 80s decade which will truly remain as an exceptional decade musically when we see the artists who continue to exist more than 40 years later...



2022...she comes from the 80s but she absolutely does not forget the era she lives in now. The proof with this tribute title...



2023...we therefore imagine that this title will certainly not be the last and above all we do not hope for a single second. The adventure cannot and must not end there...
