“Lisa Dudley offers a new genre: New Age Country.
Recorded at Ozark, Missouri, the Woodstock-based singer/songwriter croons in a supple, weather-beaten voice about healing light, guardian angels ... and the love of a far more nurturing and forgiving Jesus. Dudley's compositions are a refreshing change and, uncannily, have the immediate feel of a lived-in standard.
“Hauntingly beautiful, incredible voice, country/folk sound. Can hit and hold notes that make your toes vibrate. Makes you cry in a good way.
“Lisa Dudley Gives Spiritual Depth to Bluegrass Music --

“Lisa Dudley's Standing Ovation -- Dudley’s hauntingly angelic voice sounds like a phantom from ’40s country radio; you can almost imagine the crackling of vinyl and the static of the AM dial.
“Lisa Dudley -- Native American Angel Singer --
"Angels, hope, and acceptance are recurring themes within her breakout CD, "Angel on My Shoulder" on DoRight Records.
This soft, at times sparse production leaves room for the angels to answer in refrains bringing a calm, peaceful comfort as one listens. Perhaps it's the familiarity of vocal delivery Lisa Dudley uses that sends the listener dreaming of a time long gone. A remembrance of the burgeoning love fest of the sixties, heartfelt protest, and poetry of soul weaves in and out of Dudley's musical presentation.
“Lisa Dudley is Old School Country -- To say that Lisa Dudley’s music sounds as if it was released decades ago is an understatement. She captures the mournful twang of vintage country -- a haunting time-machine pull.
Then there is Dudley’s voice - fragile, sobbing, and filled with Gospel yearning. The shocker is that the performance, the lyrics, and the music are all new.
Free from the bogus pop seasonings of many of today’s country artists, Dudley returns the genre to its heartwarming roots.
Emotionally stirring... there’s no denying Lisa Dudley’s country-gold singing style.”
“Sentimental Spiritual Message --
Hailing from nearby Tivoli, Lisa Dudley is fast getting a national reputation – and for good reason.
Remarkably, for an independent release, “Bring ‘Em Home, Lord” has been getting mad airplay and chart success all over the land for obvious reasons. It has a gorgeous bluegrass chunk to it, with Dudley’s powerful, pure pipes carrying a message so many of us believe in.
Dudley’s pure, soothing voice leading the way, the gorgeous production by Jonathan David Brown is stocked with rich, lush acoustic instrument tones that allow her to soar above. It is a simpler world she lives in, perhaps a better one.
When all is said and done Dudley’s two CDs are sentimental, spiritual, but most of all grateful journeys that are a joy to join her on.”

“Americana Singer/Songwriter Lisa Dudley says, "Believe it or not, angels came to me and started speaking to me, and I was told to purchase an old autoharp and to write songs. Yes, all my songs are true stories. I wouldn’t know what to write about otherwise...
