This week’s Local/Live guest is Lisa Ridgely. The Milwaukee singer and songwriter takes a literary approach to her craft. Her folk and pop songs read like highly personal prose poems, letting the listener inside for a peek at her life and struggles. For the past few years, Ridgely has performed regularly with Sigmund Snopek — serving an unlikely musical apprenticeship and learning how to roll with the whims of audience and band leader alike. Currently, she is gathering songs and musicians to make her first recording this fall. For a preview of that release, listen to Lisa Ridgely this Tuesday at 8 p.m. on WMSE’s Local/Live.
