Critically acclaimed author and songwriter Gregory David Roberts (GDR) releases the second single, Lisa Run Away on October 2, 2020 taken from his debut album Love&Faith.

Gregory David Roberts is best known for Shantaram, the best-selling novel, which sold over 6 million copies worldwide and was hailed a ‘masterpiece’.

Lisa Run Away, is a melodic chill out track inspired by GDR’s favourite DJ Finnebassen. It explores love and our ability to feel vulnerable. It’s based on the character Kavita Singh, from Shantaram, who falls in love with Lisa. The music cocoons you in a melodic soundscape, evoking memories of balmy summer evenings. Saine ‘Red’ Rapley’s sticky vocals, make this a catchy chill out tune. Produced by GDR and Dale ‘Dizzle’ Virgo (Drake/ Florence + The Machine/ Kendrick Lamar/ Rihanna).

“Music has been an unfailing inspiration for me and these songs all come from the constant experience of my life that with love and faith, anything is possible”, said Gregory David Roberts.

In Jamaica, at multiple recording sessions (2018-20), GDR found the right mix of energy and talent to bring his musical vision to life. The album’s lyrical content is inspired by his six years of spiritual seclusion and is released on December 4, 2020.
