On the heels of the success of her critically-acclaimed album Jump In! (BFD/The Orchard) and its chart-topping title track, which peaked at #21 on the Billboard A/C Indicator chart, Alt-Americana Artist Lisa Bouchelle has revealed that she will embark on a U.S. Fall tour with Squeeze Co-Founder Glenn Tilbrook. Kicking off September 14 in Ridgefield, CT at the Ridgefield Playhouse and crisscrossing the country, hitting such iconic venues as the Tupelo Music Hall, Ram’s Head Stage, and Darryl’s Place, the tour will culminate in Atlanta, GA on October 11 at the Variety Playhouse.
To celebrate, Bouchelle has also announced that she will be releasing three bonus tracks for the album, which will be available Friday, September 23 on all DSPs. According to the Relix magazine “On The Rise Artist,” the focus track is a brand new song entitled “Waterproof.”
The other two singles will include an acoustic version of a song from the album Jump In!, entitled “I Believe,” which features Bouchelle on ukulele and Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band members Peter Mayer on guitar and mandolin and Doyle Grisham on pedal steel. The third song will be a re-issue of an out-of-print track that is a fan favorite, entitled "A Kiss Is Worth 1,000 Words," with a new video that will accompany it.
“The past year has been such a wonderful, wild ride and I am excited to keep the momentum going,” said Bouchelle. “I can’t wait to perform the songs from Jump In! to a wider audience and introduce my new ones.”
Jump In!, which fused together pop and rock inspired songwriting, blended with Bouchelle’s signature Alt-Americana sound, was an instant hit among fans and critics alike. With special guests including Grammy Nominee G. Love, Mike Schmid (The Chainsmokers), Tommy Kessler (Blondie), Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake and TSO), Hal B. Selzer (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts), Rob Hyman (The Hooters), Constantine Maroulis (American Idol), and many others, it was hailed as “An invaluable message of positivity and uplifting inspiration... that’ll get stuck in your head for days," by American Songwriter Magazine.
The album also generated 4.6 Million+ views on TikTok and made several "Top Ten of 2021" lists. The video for “Jump In!” was also added to MTVu, and streamed on college campuses across the U.S.
However, Jump In!, isn’t Bouchelle’s first foray into mainstream success. Her highly-praised 2016 EP Lipstick Tomboy garnered over two million streams on Spotify as well as several hundred thousand YouTube views. She has sung backup for Bruce Springsteen, dueted in concert with Jon Bon Jovi, and has maintained a heavy touring schedule over the last few years, sharing the bill with some of music’s biggest names, including Blues Traveler, Train, Bryan Adams, Shooter Jennings, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Meat Loaf, Ingrid Michaelson, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Don Felder of The Eagles, and The Wailers. Her TV show, Rock Star Kitchen, continues to be seen twice weekly on The Comcast Network (a/k/a NBC Sports Philadelphia +) and is their top-rated original content show in the Philadelphia region.
