Philly’s favorite songstress is back at it as she is about to embark on a 32-city tour which includes dates with outlaw country troubadour Shooter Jennings and renowned surf rocker Donavon Frankenreiter, and will unveil the second single from her top-streaming EP Lipstick Tomboyto mainstream radio. Lisa Bouchelle, who is also the host of The Comcast Networks top-rated TV show Rock Star Kitchen, will debut her rendition of Gordon Lightfoots If You Could Read My Mind on June 25 just in time for the start of the tour.
The beautiful thing about reinvented cover songs is that they are filtered through the new artist, so to speak, and take on somewhat of a new identity and feel, said Bouchelle. I arranged my version of To Read My Mind to focus a lot on the lyrical aspect of the song with notions of romance novels and ghosts in a wishing well.
Bouchelle will be performing this song and the rest of her repertoire as she hits the road. Initial dates, with more to be added, will be with Shooter Jennings. Jennings is the son of country legend Waylon Jennings, who has been a big influence on Bouchelle. Shooter Jennings has been able to establish his own identity as a country rebel with forays into non-traditional country genres and will be touring in support of his new album Shooter.
