Lisa van Kampen, a typical DIY artist started Great Profile in January of 2016. The moniker Great Profile, which she took in tribute to the actor John Barrymore, stays in your head when you listen to the album Stress Relief. The tongue is witty and sharp, the music no-nonsens, slacker and rambunctious. She surprises as a young lady with a mature mind and quickly gained acclaim from foreign websites including 3voor12 Flevoland, Birp!, and The Revue.

Van Kampen, in her early twenties, takes inspiration from her own life, movies, her view of the world, and obscure Bandcamp bands. On March 31 her debut Stress Relief was released. You can listen to it on Spotify, Bandcamp, and YouTube.

Track Name: Earthlings
Babe, all I see
Is people failing miserably
It's hard for me to keep up with everything
And babe, we're all drowning
In this little place we call Earth and
It's hard for me to keep up with everything

Baby, why can't we see
That it's too precious to leave
It's not as hard as you think, believe you me
'Cause baby, all I want
Is for us to get along
It's not as hard as you think, believe you me
Track Name: Lemonade
Still awake, early Sunday morning
Time for jazz and cigarettes
Half past seven, sitting on the curb
Empty rum and lemonade bottles

Don't make me cry
You left with no goodbye
At least I'm not afraid
As long as I have my lemonade

Eating ice cubes on your sofa
Bare-chested, black leather jacket
An Indian Summer song playing
Lighting another one

Don't make me cry
You left with no goodbye
At least I'm not afraid
As long as I have my lemonade
Now, don't make me sad
You left with no regrets
At least I'm not afraid
'Cause I still have my lemonade
Yeah, I still have my lemonade
Track Name: True Blue
I showed you my side and I waited for you ‘cause I
Wrote you so many times in my head and I
Calmly asked you was this really all your choice

I walked away
I never knew what you wanted and
All this time you left me wondering
If you saw me
At least I'll always be true blue
But what about you

I left for the sunny side and the sun was
Beaming down at me, but I still don't feel all right
Now can you tell me all the things you never said

I walked away
I never knew what you wanted and
All this time you left me wondering
If you saw me
At least I'll always be true blue
But what about you
Track Name: Indigo
Nothing to wish for
Nothing to die for
I thought I had it all
But now it's useless
And I'm faithless
Not feeling sorry at all
Would you mind, darling
Give me your hand please
I can't get enough
Perhaps, I'm awkward
Perhaps, I'm hopeless
I thought it was enough

Oh oh, feeling solo
Oh oh, you don't wanna know
Oh oh, I'm allowed to
Oh oh, feel blue

Don't wanna talk now
But I'm lonely
Just decide for me
Hide my thoughts and
Hide my memories
Do not ruin it for me
Now that I'm here
You're getting closer
We're getting closer again
Running faster
But it doesn't show
For whom am I doing this?

Oh oh, feeling solo
Oh oh, you don't wanna know
Oh oh, I'm allowed to
Oh oh, feel blue
Track Name: Happy Hollywood
It took so many hearts and souls
Though the good things happen on the west coast
Real estate is an important noun
Even though all there is to see is doubt

Can you save them, oh Hollywood?
They'll never be happy in Hollywood
Can you feel it, oh Hollywood?
They'll never be happy in Hollywood

Thousand statues and pavement stars
And all the fine wines they try so hard
You don't mean a thing after years of work
Yeah, you’re practically dead to the world

Can you save them, oh Hollywood?
They'll never be happy in Hollywood
Can you feel it, oh Hollywood?
They'll never be happy in Hollywood
Happy Hollywood
Happy Hollywood
Happy Hollywood
They'll never be happy in Hollywood
Track Name: I Didn't Wanna Meet You
I was fighting with bare hands
It was close to where you're standing
There's so much more that you don't know

So, ignore me
And I'll forget you
I never asked
For you to come back

Oh, I didn't wanna meet you
Oh, you let yourself go
Oh, I didn't wanna meet you
Oh, you let yourself go so

I never said I was scared
But you broke into my bedroom
And wrote me stupid poems, yeah I didn't care

So, you are here
And I am there
But there's no room
In my house for you

Oh, I didn't wanna meet you
Oh, you let yourself go
Oh, I didn't wanna meet you
Oh, you let yourself go so
Oh, I didn't wanna meet you
Oh, you let yourself go
Oh, I didn't wanna meet you
Oh, you let yourself go so
Track Name: Probably Not
I'll fight my sins and I thought about what you did
It seems far fetched, I know, no don't wanna come in
I didn't forget you and I didn't want to die
But I couldn't believe it when I saw you cry
Now call me again and come on to me
‘Cause I am lost in this saddened sea

But probably not if

I hear the birds sing their hymns
And it feels like I shouldn't go after it
But why? I said, why?
You said "you wouldn't understand me"
Well how could I, you never tell me anything
Why? I said, why?

I followed you into the awful darkness
Just didn't wanna go home and sleep in my bed
Now my thoughts are running even in my sleep
Everything turns black because I'm not free
Remind me again, how do things end?
You know all too well, that's not what I meant

But probably not if

I hear the birds sing their hymns
And it feels like I shouldn't go after it
But why? I said, why?
You said "you wouldn't understand me"
Well how could I, you never tell me anything
Why? I said, why?
Why? I said, why?
Track Name: Unparalleled
Unanswered questions and I didn't know what to say
Where did you go to, we only have lonely days
I needed a little confidence while speaking to you
I can't explain what I was going through when I saw you

Sleep tight they'll you but no can do
Goodbyes and new lives, who wants that so soon
If there's someone we all love so much
It's you, it's you, it's you, it's you
It's you, it's you, it's you

Needling my way to your house with the family
Unbeknownst to us, you changed and we all knew
No one like you, unparalleled and I held
Your hand for an hour and you knew exactly how I felt

Sleep tight they'll you but no can do
Goodbyes and new lives, who wants that so soon
If there's someone we all love so much
It's you, it's you, it's you, it's you
It's you, it's you, it's you
Track Name: Mustache and Glasses
I know it sounds crazy but I just want you to know
That I always speak so highly of you even though you don't
And I love your mustache and you look so good with your glasses on
And I love the way you talk and how you sing your little song

All my life I've been waiting for you
All this time I've been feeling kinda blue
Not so long ago you changed the morning after
The day I saw me in you

The color of your eyes is green and it makes me want to see
The way you look at the world and whether you ever feel free
And I love your dark blonde hair and your colorful clothes
And I love your husky voice and your introverted soul

All my life I've been waiting for you
All this time I've been feeling kinda blue
Not so long ago you changed the morning after
The day I saw me in you

All my life I've been waiting for you
All this time I've been feeling kinda blue
Not so long ago you changed the morning after
The day I saw me in you
Not so long ago you changed the morning after
The day I saw me in you
Track Name: Lānai
So long to your unfulfilled dream although you did pencil it in a long time ago, so I
Showed up at your house, your mother let me in and I accidentally stumbled upon your farewell
Note, I would not have guessed that you would skip town so fast without so much as a personal
Goodbye, this is not all right, no it makes me feel uptight

So long my friend
So long fella

I'll usher them to the next room
We'll make sure that it's all set and done
You don't have to hide anymore
I'll make sure you're not gonna soar
I'll make sure you're not gonna soar

People say that misery loves company so here I am standing on your lānai trying to save your life
Whilst I enjoy the colorful Chrysanthemums in your backyard I do so love this place, though it
Is empty without you, I'm quite sure that you're just tangled up with your new girlfriend
Let me know how things are going, so let me go now

So long surfer boy
So long California

I'll usher them to the next room
We'll make sure that it's all set and done
You don't have to hide anymore
I'll make sure you're not gonna soar
I'll make sure you're not gonna soar
And I don't need you to remind me
That you faded into oblivion
I just really feel adrift
'Cause you didn't look back and left
'Cause you didn't look back and left

Straight to bed without love
You went astray 'cause you're not home
I wanted you to stay until the end
So long my friend

You're crying, you're just one of a kind
Everything is fine by me, it's all right
You didn't make unnecessary waves
You knew exactly what I was about to say
You knew exactly what I was about to say

All along
All alone
All along
All alone
