After recovering from vocal therapy, Long Island country queen Lisa Matassa chats with me about her upcoming concerts in New Jersey, Tennessee and New York.
On Saturday, July 26, Matassa will be playing at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, New Jersey. "Things have been going really well. I have had an issue with my voice a month ago, but I am getting ready for this new gig at the Meadowlands. I am really looking forward to that, and then I head back to Nashville a day after that show. There are a lot of good things happening," she said. "This is a big event and the show will also have a ladies' night that will have giveaways such as designer purses and Macy's gift-cards for all the ladies, and I am the female entertainer for the night. It should be a great night and I will play with a full band. We are hoping for good weather."
Three days later, she will be performing at Cafe Fontanella at The Mansion at Fontanel in Nashville, Tennessee.

On September 10, she will do a concert in Farmingville, Long Island, with such country artists as Frankie Ballard and Lee Brice, as part of "Salute To Heroes." "I am excited about that show since it will be my first time back here in Long Island at the Pennysaver Amphitheater. This will be the third time that I have opened up for Lee Brice, so third time's the charm. Lee Brice is such a wonderful person and an incredible talent. I am honored to work with him again. It is so much fun. He is so down to earth," she said. "This will also be the second time that I am playing with Frankie Ballard. It is good to see the success that Frankie has had, and it all goes in waves, and I am really happy to be within that ocean of country music."
The Long Island singer opened up about her latest single "I Won't Ask," which resonated well with critics. "That was incredible. There are so many great opportunities that have come up over the last couple of years that have been career-changing, and I am really excited about moving forward, and seeing where the road will take us. Country music has been such a big part of my life and I am glad to be involved with it at this point," she said.
Regarding her plans for the future, Matassa remarked, "I am working on the new EP, and I am actually going to be testing out some of the songs that I had written down in Nashville this year, to decide which is going to be the next single. We are going to survey the fans and see which one they like the best to release as a single, and I am excited about that."
