Lisa Bodnar And Whistlegrass Release Second Single “She Kneels”

Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, which includes Lisa Bodnar’s home city of Allentown, has certainly seen some trying times. Lisa, who’s endured some trying times of her own, has inherited some of that defiantly optimistic, won’t-be-beaten-down Lehigh Valley grit. This grittiness weaves its way through moving, beautifully crafted songs that comprise 40 Years in the Desert, her long-awaited third album. Her debut album, Maybe I Did, was released in 2003 to instant acclaim and even charted on college and triple-A radio in the mid-2000s. The sophomore album, Come Hell or High Water, fared even better, garnering four Grammy nominations: Best New Artist; Best Pop Vocal Album; Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical; and Producer of the Year.

40 Years in the Desert is out through Deko Entertainment on October 28th and features eleven brand-new songs. You can listen to the second single “She Kneels” now, Lisa had this to say about it, ” ‘She Kneels’ is a song about hope and redemption and a love worth fighting for…”

In support of 40 Years in the Desert, Lisa Bodnar and Whistlegrass are currently planning the PA67 Tour, a state-wide celebration for community outreach to help the people, places, and programs that need it the most. They will be hitting the Roxy Theatre in Northampton, PA, on November 4.
