Artist Website: Lisbeth Scott
Lisbeth Scott is the co-lyricist and vocalist on the sound track for "The Passion of the Christ." She can also be heard on the soundtracks of the Shrek movies. Her work with Paul Schwartz on the "State of Grace" still resonates somewhere in the back of my mind. Lisbeth is a very expressive singer and an insightful songwriter. The song titled "Grace," on her new cd "Passionate Voice," is my favorite. The throaty sounds of the Armenian duduk seem to penetrate to another level of being and suspend Lisbeth's vocals in an ethereal space.
