bio

Growth emerges as the central theme of Priscilla Ahn’s album When You Grow Up, a stunning 12-song set produced by Ethan Johns that exhibits Ahn’s profound growth as an artist and a songwriter. Ahn wrote or co-wrote all but one of the album’s songs, threading a loose storyline through life’s ups and downs, her angelic voice narrating the experiences through which we grow.

In a way, it was mischievous for Ahn to name her album When You Grow Up. After all, nobody stops growing until the day they exit this mortal coil. We find and lose love, meet new friends, visit different places, and add to our skill sets. Our emotions become more complex. We establish patterns, then break them for a much-needed change of pace. That’s why the sophomore full-length from the California singer-songwriter resonates so powerfully: She funneled these phases and stages of life into the genesis of When You Grow Up, even as she reflected upon them in her inimitable style.

“The other day I was reading some old blogs of mine, from five or six years ago,” Ahn divulges. The young woman in that prose was almost unrecognizable. Back then, she was still discovering her voice as an artist, struggling to articulate emotions, even as basic necessities—like food and shelter—were often up-in-the-air. “My life was so different compared to how it is now.” But good things emerged from that turbulence. She fashioned the songs featured on her 2008 debut A Good Day, including the sleeper hit “Dream,” which found its way into several films and TV shows. There were tours with heavyweight colleagues: Ray LaMontagne, Amos Lee, Willie Nelson. She met her fiancée, and after several years of courtship, they married in 2010. The chaos reflected in those long-ago blogs had subsided. “There’s definitely a peace to life these days that I’ve never really known before.”

There is a persistent myth that when an artist is content and settled, the muse goes into hiding. At first, Priscilla wrestled with this age-old canard. “Writing before seemed so much easier, in a way. These days I process my feelings so much better, through thinking about them or journaling or meditation. I was worried there was nothing left to write songs about!” In fact, what she learned was how to dig deeper in her music, uncovering epiphanies from smaller, quieter moments. “These songs happened in a period of my life where I re-discovered, or discovered for the first time, different parts of who I am.”

She also broke out of her established pattern of self-reliance, and wrote with other musicians: Sia Furler, Inara George, Eleni Mandell, Charlie Wadhams. The lone cover on the album is the frolicsome love call “Vibe So Hot,” which was written by Benji Hughes. Although there were opportunities to work with well-known veterans, the process came most naturally when it didn’t stray far outside her immediate social orbit. It was George—the voice of the bird and the bee, and co-author of the twinkling “City Lights (Pretty Lights)”—who pointed her towards their fellow Los Angeles denizen Mandell. In turn, that pair concocted the standout “Oo La La.” Much like that jazzy collaboration, in which the narrator allows little deviations in a daily routine to open the door to adventure, these creative alliances helped Ahn unlock a more mature, sophisticated approach to her craft.

The next step was translating the fledgling songs into demos. Although she plays myriad instruments on the album, including electric and acoustic guitar, banjo, autoharp, piano, organ, and a wide variety of keyboards, Ahn’s home studio is a very modest affair. So she used her own voice to emulate different instrumental colors and parts, layering harmonies. Many of these ideas carried over into the final record, yielding beautifully layered vocal parts that evoke the intricate, multi-tracked arrangements of the Beach Boys and Kirsty MacColl.

In pursuit of the right producer to help bring this material to full fruition, Ahn went on what she jokingly refers to as a series of “blind dates.” All of the candidates she met displayed admirable strengths and impressive credentials, but nobody clicked. Meanwhile, the perfect choice was already in her sphere: Ethan Johns had previously produced three albums for her tour mate Ray LaMontagne. Even though they’d never met, when Johns was approached about the opportunity, the acclaimed producer and multi-instrumentalist disclosed he was already a fan, smitten after seeing Ahn sing and play ukulele on Jools Holland’s UK television program.

Working with Johns brought Ahn back to England, where they hunkered down at studios in Bath and London. Initially the singer was nervous about making an album so far from the familiar surroundings, musicians, and distractions of home, but her reluctance dissipated as the project gained momentum. “Recording in England was possibly the best thing I could’ve done for the record, because I was super-focused, and we were constantly working.”

While When You Grow Up took shape, so did their working relationship. “If I said, ‘Oh I’m not sure about this or that,’ Ethan was like, ‘Okay.’ He had absolutely no ego, which is very rare.” He paid just as much attention to each and every performance. “Ethan has such a great ear for placement, making the focus be the words and the voice. I trusted that he was listening.” As additional players joined the two in the studio, the process continued in an organic fashion (including recording to tape). “It was totally old school. We would do live takes with the band, all day, and sometimes into the next. Then we’d all sit in the studio and listen back until we found the one with just the right vibe.”

The final touches came about just as naturally. Tempting as it may be to label When You Grow Up a concept album, it isn’t. The album title came to Ahn one night after dinner with Ethan’s father, industry legend Glyn Johns, long after all the songs were written. Likewise, the loose story arc that begins with childhood, progresses through cycles of romance and heartbreak, and concludes with the wise, reflective “Torch Song,” only emerged after settling on that title. That might seem a bit backwards, but it’s the nature of life—and the creative process. We never truly know what has transpired until we have time to look back and reflect. All of us, especially artists, are always in flux, ever changing. Judging from When You Grow Up, listeners can expect even bigger and better things from Priscilla Ahn over time.

and this is her collection of lovely song:

Biography

Lisa Ono was born in São Paulo, Brazil in 1962 but moved with her family to Tokyo at the age of 10. From that time on she spent half of every year in Japan, and half in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Although she lived in Brazil for only a short time, she was turned into a type of “MPB (Brazilian popular music) ambassador” in Japan, influenced by her father, who owned a club while living in Brazil, and was also Baden Powell de Aquino‘s agent.[1]

Lisa began singing and playing the guitar at age 15, and her debut as a professional Bossa Nova singer was in 1989. Her natural voice, rhythmic guitar playing, and her charming smile led her to a huge success and popularized Bossa Nova in Japan. She has performed with many top musicians such as Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Donato, and has been performing enthusiastically in New York, Brazil and Asian countries. The 1999 album Dream sold more than two hundred thousand copies in Japan, and since then she has established a determined position in the Japanese Bossa Nova community.[2]

Career

After moving to Japan, Lisa’s father opened a new venue called Saci-Pererê, a Brazilian restaurant where she started performing mainly bossa nova and samba. Besides singing, Lisa Ono plays the guitar and is a songwriter. Her first album, Catupiry, was released in 1989. She has not stopped recording since then, releasing one disc a year, mostly in Portuguese. She soon became famous in Japan after appearing in several TV commercials.

In 1991 her album Nanã won the “Grand Prix Gold Disk Award for Jazz” in Japan. Her third album Menina was recorded in Rio de Janeiro, and won the same Grand Prix award. In 1992, Lisa released her second album on the BMG label called Serenata Carioca, and she also released her first book Felicidade. In 1994 she released Esperança, with guest appearances by Tom Jobim, Sivuca, Paulo Moura, Danilo Caymmi and Mario Adnet. In 1993, she made Minha Saudade, dedicated to works by João Donato, who also wrote the arrangements. In 1996, Antonio Adolfo co-produced her CD Rio Bossa. In 1998, Lisa released the album Bossa Carioca, produced by Paulo and Daniel Jobim. She also started a label, Nanã, aimed at promoting Brazilian music in Japan.

In 1999, Oscar Casto-Neves co-produced her CD Dream, which sold over 200,000 copies. This album was made in America, and contains classic American songs and film music from the 1940s/50s done with bossa nova arrangements. In July 2000, Lisa continued her exploration of songs in English with the release of Pretty World, co-produced by Eumir Deodato.

In the fall of 2000 she released Boas Festas, a “winter bossa” album to celebrate the Christmas season. The album includes original tunes as well as fresh bossa arragements of classic American Christmas carols. Continuing her exploration of new material, in the summer of 2001, Lisa released Bossa Hula Nova, which as the title name implies, includes some new and classic Hawaiian songs done in a bossa nova style. This album includes arrangements by Mário Adnet, who appears on many of her recordings. In March 2002, Lisa released Lisa Ono Best 1997-2001. This album also includes two wonderful new live songs recorded on Lisa’s “winter bossa” tour in December 2001. In July 2002, Lisa released Questa Bossa Mia (This Is My Bossa Nova). This CD features a new musical destination – Italy! Mário Adnet is once again involved.

In 2003 she released the album Dans Mon Île (French for “In my island”), themed around a voyage to France and based on famous French songs. Joining her once again is the Brazilian composer and arranger Mário Adnet. Guest musicians include Pierre Barouh, Richard Galliano, and Henri Salvador, who also performs a duet with Lisa on “J’ai Vu.” In the summer of 2004, Lisa released NAIMA-meu anjo, a collection of African and Arabic songs done in a bossa nova style. In November 2004, Lisa released her newest CD Boas Festas 2Feliz Natal. On this album Lisa returns to Brazil with an exceptional new “winter bossa” collection of Chistmas songs in English and Portuguese recorded with three of Brazil’s top guitarists – Toninho Horta, Oscar Castro-Neves, and Romero Lubambo.

Lisa announced the birth of her second child, a boy, on October 7, 2004.

Lisa has performed with Tom Jobim and with João Donato in Brazil, in addition to other performances around the world. Appearances in Japan include concerts at the Blue Note Tokyo with Paulo and Daniel Jobim, Toninho Horta, and Emílio Santiago.

In addition to making guest appearances on other recordings, Lisa has also created music for television commercials in Japan.[3]

As of November 2007, she has released 22 albums.

In 2009, from January to April, Lisa held her Asian tour from Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, to Bangko. On March 4 of 2009, her two new albums, Cheek To Cheek – Jazz Standards from RIO – and Look To The Rainbow – Jazz Standards from L.A. – were released at the same time. The theme of both albums is Jazz music, and features arrangers from Brazil and Los Angeles. In May 2009, Lisa started Lisa Ono Concert Tour 2009 – Jazz Standards -, a tour to celebrate her two new albums.[4]
