Grammy Nominee Lisa Haley has released her new 8th album, 'Joy Ride.' An exciting mix of Americana, Roots Country, Folk, and Zydeco-Cajun, the CD features "Speechless Love," "More Than Anything," and "Who's Your Crawdaddy."

'Joy Ride' has already charted at Billboard (her third album in a row to do so), #2 on Cashbox's Zydeco Roots Music Report, at #47 on the Folk DJ Chart, and is getting radio airplay througout the US, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Produced by Grammy Award winner Wendy Waldman, Lisa brings down the walls of Cajun-Zydeco convention with her Spirit-filled, healing combination of finesse and bombardment, sure to rewrite audience perception, make us laugh, cry... and above all, DANCE!

Since beginning in 1995, Hawthorne, CA's Lisa Haley & the Zydekats are hands-down the world's most beloved and joyful Americana-Cajun-Zydeco band.

Lisa's adventuresome attitude together with her blue violin and soaring, compelling 'cornbread' voice endear this fourth-generation fiddler, dancer, vocalist, and songwriter to all ages.

Her 2008 Grammy-nominated CD 'King Cake' and 2011's 'Absolutely Live!' charted on the Billboard World Chart. And Lisa counts Keb'Mo' and Little Richard among her fans.

'Joy Ride' promises to take the genre to new heights and includes heartfelt performances by guest artists including:
• Leland Sklar, bass (Phil Collins, James Taylor)
• Eric Rigler, Uilliann Pipes (Titanic and Braveheart films)
• Matt Rollings, piano (Paul McCartney, Mary Chapin Carpenter)
• Bryan Head, drums (Supertramp, Luis Miguel, Neil Young)

Her original tunes and Louisiana Bayou, French Celtic, R&B and Jazz rhythms have represented Zydeco for the U.S. Arts Ambassador Program, Grammy Museum, Hollywood Bowl Summersounds, Sir George Martin's (The Beatles' producer) film 'Rhythm of Life,' and festivals in over 20 countries.

Prepare to catch 'Zydecosis!'
