In an interview with Rollingout Lisa McClendon talks about her recent decision to expand her music to include jazz, here’s a bit of that interview:
How would you introduce the reinvented Lisa McClendon to others?
I would introduce the reinvention of Lisa McClendon as a rebirthing of the era of Ella Fitzgerald, the area when music had its own language and a timeless sound.
How many albums did you have in the gospel arena throughout the years?
I have a total of six albums that have been released in the gospel genre.
What were some of your fans’ favorite gospel songs?
I would have to say the most popular song for me in gospel would have to be “You Are Holy.” I think every church in America has sang or is singing that song still in their services.
Why did you take a break from music?
I never really took a break from music; I slowed down. I slowed down because I had just remarried and was settling in to the new life. Then I became a master herbalist student, which I still am today and I look forward to completing my studies.
