December 12, 2012

Current Video Draws 2.49 MILLION YouTube Views


Nashville, TN (December 12, 2012) -- INSIDE MUSIC ROW's Kelly Lynn captured the essence of the singing/songwriter mother of two, Lisa Matassa, during a recent interview.  "It was a very simpatico moment for us," notes Lisa.  "She drew out a side of me that most fans don't see."

Lisa,  a Long Island resident, shared her personal thoughts about subjects as  diverse as Hurricane Sandy's impact, songwriting and the launch of her  second musical career.  Matassa spoke excitedly of the Watertown,  Tennessee video shoot for her current single, "Somebody's Baby," directed by Traci Goudie (Hunter Hayes, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin).  The video has logged over 2.49 MILLION YouTube views to date and is included on her new, enhanced EP, SOMEBODY'S BABY.


The Country songstress also performed an acoustic version of "Wouldn't You Like To Know"  (a Matassa co-write with Don Rollins and Jody Gray), from the disc.   The episode marks her debut on the popular show, and the segment is  airing now through December 16.  INSIDE MUSIC ROW is available in  markets ranging from Abilene to Australia and from Paris, France to  Pittsburgh, PA.  Outlets carrying the program include CMC (AUS),  FamilyNet, Rural-TV and AMG-TV.  Nashvillians can watch Lisa on IMR on  WNAB-TV (Comcast Channel 18) on Saturday, December 15, at 10:30 p.m.  CST.  For a complete listing of available broadcasters, go to



With over 2.6 million previous YouTube views and two #1 videos on (including "Me Time"), Lisa is no stranger to Country audiences.  She  has opened shows for Dierks Bentley, Leann Rimes, Eric Church and  Ronnie Dunn.  Operatically trained as a child and with a resonantly  powerful pop voice, Lisa recorded two Top-10 Dance singles before she  was 20.  The songs were hits in the U.S. and abroad, earning her slots  on the marquee with acts Taylor Dayne, Brenda K. Starr, TKA and others.   Born on Long Island but raised in South Florida, Lisa grew up singing  along to Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash.  Once she realized  that Country music was her calling, she gave herself to it heart and  soul.
