Lisa Heller – Deep End (Spotify)

“Deep End” is the fourth and final single off of Lisa Heller's debut EP, The Lisa Heller Project. Lisa wrote the song when she was struggling with depression.

East coast born and raised Lisa Heller started writing music at the age of 13 in her bedroom as a creative outlet for her anxiety. While still in high school, Lisa quickly gained a small local following of fans around her CT hometown after placing in national songwriting competitions and gaining support of local radio and newspapers. Released from her college dorm room, her anthemic debut single "Hope" reached over 1.5M+ views on YouTube. With further releases, she caught the attention of outlets like Huffington Post, started playing to thousands on the east coast college circuit, and made her SXSW debut.

In late 2018, Lisa moved to Los Angeles and was quickly pulled into following the music industry “rules”. This led to her release of a series of commercial electro-pop singles. But then, at a high school convention, she played a new song solo on piano that she had written about depression called “Deep End,” and the audience’s emotional response spoke volumes to her. Lisa soon realized she needed to hone in on her raw, authentic sound...

Then, The Lisa Heller Project came to life. Consisting of a four song EP and four experimental music videos, the project features piano-centric production and poignant lyrics. Track list: 1. “Figure It Out,” 2. “Pulling Away,” 3. “Closure,” and finally, 4. “Deep End”.
