“Nowhere at All” from Lisa Brigantino’s October 2018 album release I’ll Waltz Before I Gois a song co-written posthumously with Brigantino’s cousin Felix Pappalardi, the legendary producer/composer/multi-instrumentalist/bassist who produced Cream, The Youngbloods, Hot Tuna (among many others) and went on to produce and play bass in Mountain with Leslie West.
Brigantino had some handwritten sketches of lyrics written by Pappalardi in her possession since his untimely death in 1983. She showed the lyrics to her husband and co-producer Thomas Millioto only a few years ago and he suggested she write music to some of the lyrics. She asked the Pappalardi Estate for permission to do so, and the 1970s-infused Rock tune “Nowhere at All” was born. “Felix was such an inspiration to me when I was growing up,” says Brigantino. “He even gave me my first electric bass when I was 14, and was always encouraging of the creative exploits of both my sister and I. It’s a tremendous honor for me to have collaborated with him on “Nowhere at All.”
Brigantino is a former original member of Lez Zeppelin, the world’s first all girl Led Zeppelin tribute band. She played bass, keys and mandolin and toured internationally with the band for a number of years playing A list venues and festivals including Bonnaroo and Download. She left the band in 2009 to focus on writing and performing her original music. Visit https://lisabrigantino.com/for more information.
