Du Blues au Diapason | Lisa Mills


As part of the OMAC festival agenda, the town of Pont-du-Casse was lucky to host a live music performance by Lisa Mills, who received the Nappie Prize of the best Blues Artist and whom Led Zeppelin’s lead singer, Robert Plant himself, recommends for her “marvelous voice.” Those are praises that the massive audience that showed up at the Diapason can only confirm!

Supported by her music band, with Fabrice Joussot on the guitar, Philippe Scemama on the bass, and Pascal Delmas on the drums, the singer-cum-guitar player offered them an authentic journey into the US South, at the original of Blues and Gospel music, and where she comes from. Guided by her impressive vocal range, the audience was successfully captivated by her powerful voice and then transported by her softness in more intimate ballads.

And we are lost for words to describe the finale, in which the Gloryspel choir directed by Stellia Koumba joined Lisa Mills! Chosen by the American singer, those final six songs offered a “splendid” conclusion to a “superb” live music performance, according to people who attended.

A beautiful evening that extended into a long signings session, during which everyone got a chance to exchange, in English, with an artist who has made herself available and demonstrated her generosity.

Dans le cadre de la programmation de l’OMAC, Pont-du-Casse a eu la chance d’accueillir un concert de Lisa Mills, prix Nappie 2018 de la meilleure artiste de blues dont le chanteur de Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant lui-même, recommande la «voix merveilleuse». Des louanges que les spectateurs du Diapason, venus nombreux, ne peuvent que confirmer ! Accompagnée par ses musiciens, Fabrice Joussot à la guitare, Philippe Scemama à la contrebasse et Pascal Delmas à la batterie, la chanteuse guitariste leur a en effet offert un véritable voyage vers le sud des Etats-Unis, pays du blues et du gospel dont elle est originaire. Guidé par son impressionnante gamme vocale, le public s’est tour à tour laissé captiver par sa puissance puis porter par sa douceur lors de ballades plus intimistes. Et que dire du final pour lequel la chorale Gloryspel dirigée par Stellia Koumba a rejoint Lisa Mills ! Choisis par la chanteuse, ces six derniers morceaux offrirent aux dires des spectateurs une «splendide» conclusion à ce «superbe concert». Cette belle soirée se prolongea ensuite autour d’une longue série de dédicaces durant laquelle chacun eut l’occasion de dialoguer, en anglais, avec une artiste aussi généreuse que disponible.
