Harmony, N.J.-based Lisa Godino is a self-proclaimed folk artist just trying to make a little noise anywhere I can, she says. It’s not always easy, as the kind of noise she’s talking about isn’t of the Class 8 diesel variety but music, and with 50 hours a week’s worth of trucking, it’s difficult to find the time, but I keep trying to write as much as I possibly can, she says.
She manages to do both in high volume ” and quality. With 23 years of hauling under her belt, mostly in the immediate vicinity of her home state, today in a 1996 Mack with New Jersey’s F&M Transportation (also where she got her start hauling a milk tank, before other gigs), Godino’s lately moved into trucking-music territory with several tunes penned straight from the meaningful core of her on-highway life.
