Title - Ainít No Good Man
Artist - Lisa St. Lou
For those unaware, the new album from emerging soul singer Lisa St. Lou spent 7 weeks on the Billboard Charts and is steeped in the music of New Orleans, featuring guest appearances by Cyril Neville, Aaron Neville, Irma Thomas, and number of other NOLA based artists.
The album tells the story of Lisaís self-rediscovery after surviving a soulless, emotionally abusive marriage. A seeker of the soul who found a way to drown-out the demons of the past with her sensational voice, Lisaís passion for music began as a young girl performing for a small congregation at her grandmothers Baptist Church in St. Louis.
Pressured to pursue a formal education rather than a career as a recording artist, she moved to NY to study music, received a masters degree in opera, and ultimately landed a role in The Producers on Broadway.
But her personal ambitions clashed with the desires of her husband, and when the marriage became untenable, Lisa made the toughest decision of her life, leaving the life she knew and refocusing her energies on her love of music.
Ainít No Good Man marks Lisaís return to the spirit that moved her to sing in church. It is the story of a woman who went through it, came out the other side, and lived to tell the tale.

This melodically compelling new album opens on the rambunctious title track jam Ainít No Good Man and backs that up with the hi-energy of Girl, Get On, the mid-tempo, horn-imbued foot-tapper Hey, Hey, Hey, the countrified ballad Still Hanging On, and both the Gospel-infused You Better Donít and the finger-snapping jive of Love Me Baby.
Next up is the uproarious Nothing Is Ever Enough (for a man) and the melodiously magnificent ambiance of Watcha Gonna Do, the sweepingly soaring harmonies of Miracle In Motion, the funky blues flow of Iíve Seen The Light, with the album rounding out on more finger-snapping, mid-tempo funk within Are You Ready, closing on the aesthetically pleasurable piano ballad Flowers In The Rain.
