Lisa Reagan Love Releases 4th Album 'Realm of Dreams'

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - Oklahoma City-based classical pop artist Lisa Reagan Love today released her fourth full-length album, "Realm of Dreams," a fully-orchestrated collection of 10 original songs, and two well-known cover songs, inspired by her love of poetry.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, Love is a multi-faceted musician and former Miss Oklahoma who has shared the stage with nationally renowned performers such as Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, and Renee Fleming.

"Much of the inspiration for this album came from my love of poetry," Love said. "When I feel deeply moved by the poignant words of great poets like Blake and Yeats, I then try to express that emotion through my music. It's like painting with textures of tones and harmonies."

"Realm of Dreams" was recorded at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studio with the production team of Fred Cannon and Paul Buono. The song "Besos de Amor" is a duet featuring contemporary Christian recording artist Tony LeBron. The album's title track was inspired Love's sister.

"She was a person I greatly loved and miss so much. She has passed away but is still with me in spirit, and thinking about her helps me," Love said. "The song is about the people we love but can't be with. I thought about all of the young couples whose partner might be in Afghanistan or Iraq and how much they miss each other, and how when we go outside and look up at the same moon and stars as our loved ones who might be in another part of the world, that we are bonded through our hearts, and truly together in spirit."

Previous albums include: "Satori" (2002), "Arcana" (2006), and "Noel" (2012). Her original composition, "A l'infini," appeared on the season one finale of the Bravo Network reality television series "Project Runway" in 2005.

The album is now available for purchase at www.lisareaganlove.com, iTunes and Amazon.com.
