Born in Melbourne in 1969, Lisa discovered her passion for music at an early age. Encouraged by her musical family, she began piano lessons at the age of six. At the age of eight she gave her first solo performance to an audience of 400 people ‚Ä for an eight year old, this was a very important experience. From here on Lisa knew that her life would be music!
Today, wherever she performs, she dazzles her audience. Although only 164cm tall, Lisa has a big voice which covers 3 Octaves. Additionally she is a trained pianist, actress and dancer. Following her comprehensive training at the ‚ÄúAustralian College of Entertainers‚ÄĚ, Lisa worked in Television, Film and Theatre. To name a few examples, she performed in the musical ‚ÄúCinderella‚ÄĚ, was a member of the well known ‚ÄúSwing Sisters Trio‚ÄĚ, was a regular guest on the Television show ‚ÄúGood Morning Australia‚ÄĚ and was also active as a singer/pianist in the renowned hotels of Melbourne. In 1994 Lisa travelled extensively on cruise ships presenting her own solo show. In 1995 she released her first CD with the Title ‚ÄúDon‚Äôt Let Go‚ÄĚ featuring a number of her own compositions.
It's Time is most definitely an album for the twenty-first century that will find appeal across gender, geography, and musical genre. Lisa's voice delivers every nuance and the members of her band make sure what she says is underlined but not overshadowed by the power of their own talent.
