Nashville, TN (October 30, 2012) -- Lisa Matassa's dynamic and visually-enticing new video, "Somebody's Baby," premieres on AOL's The Boot today, as the single debuts on the New & Active Billboard/BDS Indicator Chart. Hotshot Traci Goudie (Hunter Hayes, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin) directed the video, which perfectly reflects Matassa's artistry. Lisa's soulful, powerhouse vocals reign supreme; the track is high-energy and bright. Captured on a Watertown, TN farm, the scenes vary from crisp and clean to soft and subdued. Interspersed archival family footage shows Matassa from childhood through marriage to motherhood, and the legitimacy these images create is undeniable.

"It's a song about connections," Lisa states. "It immediately resonated with me. As a mom of two teenagers who are college-bound, I know that regardless of their age or where they go in life, they will always be my 'babies.' I hope that when folks hear this song it makes them think of their special 'baby.'"
"Somebody's Baby" was released to radio last month (It Is What It Is Records / Nine North Records), and Lisa's 500,000-plus social media connections are thrilled with the driving new single. Written by Kelly Archer, Casey Koesel and Justin Weaver, the edgy rocker is the first release from Matassa's upcoming EP of the same name.
With over 2.6 million previous YouTube video views and two #1 videos on CMT.com (including "Me Time"), Lisa is no stranger to Country audiences. She has opened shows for Dierks Bentley, Leann Rimes, Eric Church, Lee Brice and Ronnie Dunn.
Operatically trained as a child and with a resonantly powerful pop voice, Lisa recorded two Top-10 Dance singles before she was 20. The songs were hits in the U.S. and abroad, earning her slots on the marquee with acts Taylor Dayne, Brenda K. Starr, TKA and others. Born on Long Island but raised in South Florida, Lisa loved singing along to records by Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash, and she realized more and more that Country music was her calling. Capitalizing on today's more Rock-tinged arrangements, Lisa found she could blend the natural heartfelt soul of the genre with her own stylized brand of New York edginess.
