// Roam

The Roam Project is as much an attitude as a sound: Humanitarian. Multi-lingual. Philosophical. Collaborative Live Song-Makers. Spear-headed by award-winning Canadian singer/songwriter/producer Lisa Patterson, TRP’s contemporary roots songs are spiced with her Roma & Celt blood and brought to life with collaborators Alex McMaster on cello and vocals (Ron Hawkins, Chilly Gonzales, Christine Fellows) and Justin Abedin on guitars (Jacksoul, Justin Hines, The Wailin’ Jennys). Called “Mysterious and interesting, a story behind each song” by The Netherlands Mc-Ent agency and, “A perfect balance of worldly sounds, musical finesse and passion” by Edge Of The World Festival. LP & TRP’s melodic, poetic, haunting songs have been placed in award-winning indie films including ‘Awaiting Atwood’, mocumentary featuring cameo by Ms. Atwood (executive producer Genie award-winning Thom Fitzgerald - The Hanging Garden). Highlights include tours & showcases in Europe, India, Canada, Mexico; play-listed Top Ten on Holland AAA charts; two Top Ten videos on Bravo! Television. Currently writing for their next release, LP & TRP continue to push creative boundaries, exploring EDM mash ups most recently 2016’s ‘Colour of Blood’ video & single (feat. Tommy Onyx / Robert Ballantyne). Juno & Polaris award-winning producer Michael Phillip Wojewoda (Buffy Sainte-Marie; Rheostatics, Bare Naked Ladies) co-created ‘Lumina’ album (2013) and LP solo disc ‘Roam’ (2005, RoughTrade Records) made with Grammy nominated & Juno winning producer/engineer Adam Messinger (Magic!, Shakira, Iggy Azalea). Efforts toward a harmonious planet include work with Stephen Lewis Foundation, Toronto’s SKETCH (Arts for street-involved youth), Amnesty International and Patterson’s ‘The Citizen Suitcase’, donated Arts services to Syrian refugee families arriving in Toronto. in addition to collaborating with artists of Indigenous, Egyptian, Romanian, Iranian, Cuban, Israeli, Indian, Trinidadian and African backgrounds, LP & TRP also playfully partner with the audience inventing songs on stage.
