Song Honors America's Military & Families -  
Benefitting "Stars For Stripes" Military Outreach

(Nashville, Tennessee) - January 2, 2012 -The release of the new single "Before The Tree Comes Down," marks the addition of the incomparable voice of Lisa McClowry to the list of musical gifts to be thankful for.

The heartwarming companion video uses a military theme that touches on the lives of those serving overseas and those waiting at home for their return - a reality for millions of Americans during the holiday season and beyond.  A portion of the sales of "Before The Tree Comes Down" is being donated to support the work of "Stars For Stripes," a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality celebrity entertainment to internationally deployed U.S. military forces.

Lisa is particularly hopeful the release will gain major connectivity with listeners as a thoughtful reminder of the thousands of military men and woman deployed overseas and the waiting families who must cope with their loved one's absence.

"I have a tremendous respect for our military and value the meaning of family," she noted in a recent interview. "Releasing 'Before The Tree Comes Down' is my own personal audio greeting card to our troops and their families.  This is my way of honoring them and letting them know they are not forgotten and my hope is that this song brings to light the sacrifices our brave service men and women and their families endure every day."

Written by Christa Wells and Jim Peterik and produced by Jim Peterik, "Before The Tree Comes Down" is being serviced independently to radio across multiple genres by the Nashville based HMG Music Group.  The video is being promoted nationally to viewing outlets by HIP Video Promo.

With a stunning four octave range and strong career credits in the sophisticated world of Jazz, Lisa McClowry's versatility  has accorded her virtually effortless transitions into pop, R&B, blues, country-most recently gospel with the release of "Brand New Hallelujah" currently climbing the gospel/inspirational charts-and now the holiday/seasonal market.

Her most recent album release, Lisa McClowery Sings Acoustic Alchemy, the ambitious and inspiring collaboration between the artist and the British instrumental guitar duo legends behind Acoustic Alchemy --Greg Carmichael and Miles Gilderdale-has since its release in 2010 provided the introduction of her music to a wide new universe of listeners.

Central to this her latest season of music is Lisa's creative recording/production relationship with legendary Grammy and Oscar winning singer/songwriter Jim Peterik whose lasting niche in music history credits him with founding roles with super rock groups The Ides of March and Survivor, as well as writing credits for the memorable mega hit of movie origin-"Eye of the Tiger." 

A self admitted "bit of a chalemeon" Lisa's  career interests away from the live performance stage she loves have taken her into the recording studio for projects as diverse as the artist herself.  She's recorded national commercial campaigns for major advertisers such as Applebee's ("Eating Good in the Neighborhood") and TRESemme hair products ("TRESemme, ooh la la!"). She has also been involved with film work, including the major creative stretch of co-writing a song for the animated "The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle," as well as her soundtrack voice work credits for "Rugrats In Paris: The Movie," for which she supplied the character voice work for The Princess.
