LORI LIEBERMAN TRULY

Released May 20, 2022

Lori Lieberman is best known for the hit song, Killing Me Softly which is based on her poem detailing her experience at the Troubadour in Los Angeles back in the early 70’s. She was the first to record the song on her debut album for Capitol Records and was the featured artist on American Airlines’ in-flight listening program, where Roberta Flack first heard the song. Roberta Flack’s recording earned her two Grammys that year, and the song has been recorded over the years by an unlimited number of well-known artists, including the Fugees, Frank Sinatra, and countless others.

Over the past five decades, Lori Lieberman has remained in the spotlight, gleaning the respect of an industry and a devoted base of fans. She has recorded over 18 albums and has toured worldwide, including twice to sold-out audiences at Carnegie Hall, and the noted Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Lori grew up in Switzerland, one of three sisters, surrounded by musical influences that included Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, Dionne Warwick, to name a few. She moved to Los Angeles, signed with Capitol Records, became part of the West Coast music scene, and toured with Leonard Cohen, Billy Joel, Kenny Rankin, Randy Newman, and many others.

As one of the industry’s most prolific songwriters, Lori Lieberman has continued to record for nearly five decades and has worked with some of the most talented songwriters in both the US and abroad. Her arranging and production skills led to highly reviewed bodies of work and featured the noted Matangi Quartet from the Netherlands on her Ready for the Storm and The Girl and The Cat albums. Her recent entry, singing songs from the American Songbook, is the focus of her CD, Truly, co-produced by Lieberman and noted arranger/pianist, Matt Rollings. Featuring a stellar jazz quartet and engineered by the legendary Bob Clearmountain, this well-received record further demonstrates that Lori Lieberman is one of our most versatile and enduring artists.
