"Watching Her Fingers" is the Single from the album "Weather Changer Girl", Lisa''s 2nd CD (3rd full-length album). "Watching Her Fingers" was re-mixed by Simon Raymonde of the Cocteau Twins. Lisa and her band (Lisa Dewey & The Lotus Life) live and perform in the San Francisco Bay Area. Band members are John Testani on drums, Keith St. Thomas on lead guitar, and Paul Zimmerman on bass. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Music, Lisa decided to start her own indie label (Kitchen Whore Records). Lisa Dewey and band are currently working on her 5th full-length album.
Lisa is a featured vocalist on Marc Moreland''s (Wall of Voodoo) debut solo album Marc Moreland Mess "Take it to the Spotlight" (Kitchen Whore). Lisa has a few guest performances on the Kelsi Arnold "Dulcinea" album. Lisa had a small role in the feature films ''Some Prefer Cake'' and ''BERTA'', and her music has been heard in five films. Lisa''s first book, "spank.", a book of poetry, prose, short stories, one-liners and ...a recipe, is out on Fifth Planet Press (Atlanta, GA). "spank." is available through https://www.tradebit.com, Small Press Distribution (https://www.tradebit.com) and https://www.tradebit.com.
''From the land of dot coms and um, Smashmouth, it''s a refreshing thing to put in the new disc by San Jose''s own Lisa Dewey and experience something completely different. "Weather Changer Girl" evokes a sound pleasantly melodic and hypnotic, yet at the same time with a strong delivery and sometime growl that holds the pace. Opening track "Watching Her Fingers" launches the album with a dreamy soundscape that would make any Cocteau Twin proud. As a matter of fact, this record does feature a Twin, Simon Raymonde, on two tracks with his mixes on four of the tracks. While Raymonde''s presence is felt especially on "Heathens" (sounding almost like a lost track from the Cocteau Twins'', Heaven or Las Vegas), Lisa''s delivery is all her own with lyrics like "I wanted to take you on the bar...So... Belly ache goes far...One down." Pick up this record and hear a talented, new songwriter at work and at play; doing what she does best.''

''Local folk/pop/alternative musician, Lisa Dewey''s new CD, "Weather Changer Girl", is true to it''s name: It roils with unpredictable emotional weather, from misty dreamscapes of love and infatuation to some rumblings of romantic thunder. Four of the album''s tracks were mixed by Simon Raymonde of the Cocteau Twins, and throughout the album there are appealing hints of that group''s floaty, ethereal quality, but always nicely grounded by Dewey''s clear, ringing vocals, solid guitar work and curtly poetic lyrics. The San Jose-based musician has also founded her own label, Kitchen Whore Records, and currently has a book of poetry and short stories titled "spank." available at, among other places, her website, https://www.tradebit.com.''

Lisa Dewey''s delicate yelp not only conjures the Cocteau Twins'' wispy witch, Liz Fraser, she even got some sonic aid from the Twins'' Simon Raymonde on her latest album ''Weather Changer Girl''.
-John Graham, Portland Willamette Week April 4, 2001.
Lisa Dewey is a bit of a car crash of ethereal cool. Her voice is deep and heavy, the guitars sound like tumbling stars, and when I hear the music, it makes me think of flowers growing on Neptune''s surface.

''...Speaking of neo-goth, San Jose singer/songwriter, LISA DEWEY played a marvelous show at the Jury room Saturday, March 31st alongside Sin in Space. Backed by a mellow three-piece band with 12-string guitars and plenty of effects pedals, Dewey gracefully sang simple but pretty tunes full of Cocteau Twins sensibilites.''
