Her most recent release, 7 Shades of Snow was again awarded a Global Music Award in 2022 for best Female Vocalist.
Bisantz' current project, soon to be released It's Been A Long, Long Time is a collection of crossover Jazz/Americana, recorded in collaboration with long time friend and musical partner Gordon Morrell.
