Acclaimed singer and songwriter Lisa Bouchelle has unveiled her first new single of 2021 with her band, The Bleu, titled “Jump In!” Available on all digital and streaming services, the upbeat, hook-filled and summer-ready anthem displays a new era for the New Jersey native, fusing together pop and rock inspired songwriting, blended with her signature brand Alt-Americana.
“Jump In!” marks the first official single from Lisa Bouchelle & The Bleu’s highly anticipated forthcoming album of the same name, set to release August 27th under their new label deal with BFD/The Orchard, a division of Sony Music Group.
“I’m so excited to get the song 'Jump In!' out to public,” says Bouchelle. “It’s my personal story about believing in oneself, about not being afraid to take chances in life; to ‘go for it’ and Jump In! I think everyone can relate to that! G. Love did an awesome harp solo for it, and my friends Tommy Kessler from Blondie and Hal B. Selzer from Joan Jett & The Blackhearts really did some great parts on it as well!”
The 13-track set features an array of impressive musical collaborators, which include recent 2020 Grammy nominee G. Love, Mike Schmid of The Chainsmokers, Tommy Kessler from Blondie, Joel Hoekstra of Whitesnake and TSO, Hal B. Selzer of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Rob Hyman of The Hooters, American Idol and Broadway star Constantine Maroulis, and many others. The album is available for pre-order HERE.
“Jump In!” follows Bouchelle’s 2016 critically acclaimed EP, Lipstick Tomboy, which achieved over 2 million streams on Spotify as well as several hundred thousand YouTube views. Lisa has sung backup for Bruce Springsteen, dueted in concert with Jon Bon Jovi, and she has also maintained a heavy touring schedule over the last few years, having played with some of music’s biggest names including Blues Traveler, Train, Bryan Adams, Shooter Jennings, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Meat Loaf, Ingrid Michaelson, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Don Felder of The Eagles, and The Wailers, among others.
Bouchelle is currently in discussions to nationally syndicate her hit TV series “Rock Star Kitchen,” an idea she formed while touring and recording with Blues Traveler front man John Popper. The show centers around Bouchelle, who gathers with rock stars in the kitchen to talk about music and touring, all while cooking their favorite dishes and jamming on acoustic guitars. Currently distributed via The Comcast Network, where it has become a top rated original content series, the show can be seen twice weekly throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Bouchelle is also in talks for a cookbook based on the show.
