Lisa Stansfield believes in the power of music to open our souls to our most precious emotions – to get in touch with them, to openly express them. “When I write music, I describe emotions more than anything”, she said in a Jazz FM interview. For 34 years now she has been our companion in a world of beauty, harmony and dance with her songs and the goodness in her voice. The key to her approach to music is spontaneity – she never plans in advance and loves to give songs what they need. In this most wonderful moment of all Lisa Stansfield sees us stopping for a moment and looking at the people around us. Earth, she believes, will be a better place if we stop letting complete mental idiots run the world. Lisa Stansfield is not bothered by the pace of time – just the opposite – answering our questions just two days before her birthday on the 11th of April, she feels that the passing of time is a stimulus for us to continue forward with fresh strength: “Time is going forward and we should be going forward with it”, she said.
