1979 Lisa Dal Bello – Pretty Girls

Dal Bello, Lisa 1979Pretty Girls is the second album by Lisa Dal Bello.

Dalbello (born 22 May 1959 as Lisa Dal Bello) is a Canadian recording artist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and voice actress. She released three albums in the pop and pop/rock genre in her late teens, from 1977 through 1981 under her full name. In 1984, she re-emerged as Dalbello, with an edgier brand of alternative rock.

At the age of 14, Lisa Dal Bello (as she was then billed) made her 1974 recording debut with a 4-song EP that was recorded for CBC Radio, Canada’s national broadcaster. The record was not commercially available, and airplay was legally restricted to the CBC only.

Signing with MCA Records out of L.A. when she was 17, Dalbello’s self-titled debut album in 1977, produced by David Foster, won her a 1978 Juno Award for Most Promising Female Vocalist of the Year. Despite her win, however, MCA dropped her from the label because the album’s production had been too expensive. She formed her own label, Talisman Records, to release her second album Pretty Girls, and received her second Juno nomination in 1979 in the category of Female Vocalist of the Year.
