Producer, songwriter and multi-disciplinary artist Lisa Murray launches her electric, self-produced debut single, ‘The Kind Of Girl’ out May 28th – the first in what is sure to be a promising string of cutting edge, indie pop songs that perfectly encompass a nostalgic summer soundtrack.
Lisa Murray fuses her creativity and unique production style with honest and narrative storytelling to create a soundtrack of modern life and love. Her tongue-in-cheek wit goes hand in hand with a raw expression of emotion in her songwriting process, detailing the charming tragedy of modern womanhood.

Her debut release, ‘The Kind Of Girl’ showcases the masterful songwriting and unique production style that this rising one-woman song machine is capable of. ‘The Kind Of Girl’ was inspired by the manic pixie dream girl narrative device and Lisa’s own experiences as a woman navigating through early adult life. Using synth bass lines, punchy drums and crystal clear vocals, Lisa creates a captivating vehicle for this charming story.
‘The Kind Of Girl’ was written during Lisa’s time studying at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music, from which she holds a Masters degree in Music Production, Technology and Innovation. Starting with the narrative concept and catchy hook, a large portion of the song was written during a 2am studio session with a deadline the following morning.
Detailing the songwriting process, Lisa says, “When it comes to songwriting, I often wake up in the morning with a fully fleshed out song idea in my head. This was one of those songs that appeared in my psyche one day, and once I started to sing through and perform it, the rest of the song wrote itself.”
