About Lisa Matassa
At age 19, Lisa Matassa snagged a recording contract under the stage name “Lysa Lynn,” with the independent label Emergency Records which specialized in producing 1980s dance-pop sensations like recording artist Shannon’s dance anthem, “Let The Music Play.” Lisa, herself, enjoyed some early notoriety with two singles, 1987’s “I’ve Got the Hots For You” and 1988’s “Rock Me Baby.” Both singles got national and international airplay and reached the Top 10 on the Dance Music Charts. During this time, Matassa performed numerous shows alongside artists of the day, like Taylor Dayne, Brenda K. Starr, Judy Torres, and TKA.
Lisa eventually put her music career on hold to become a wife and mother of two on New York’s Long Island. Now at 40-something and with stunning good looks, Lisa is conquering the music scene once again with her own unique style that she lovingly calls, "Long Island Country." With two-time Grammy nominated producer, Bobby Guy Graziose, producers Joey Sykes (Meredith Brooks, Third Eye Blind, Don Henley), Tony Bruno (Joan Jett, Enrique Iglesias, Rihanna), and legendary country music songwriter Don Rollins (Alan Jackson’s hit single, “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere”), Lisa has recently released her Extended Play (EP) album, “Me Time.” “Me Time” is an inspired musical compilation of strong, rock-based empowering songs with country undertones.
Me Time was released independently through LMA Productions/It Is What It Is Records, and is currently available for purchase at www.lisamatassa.com
