Lisa is equally at home performing rock, soul, folk/celtic, progressive, blues or jazz.

Lisa’s beautiful vocals and songwriting skills brought her to the attention of Warner Chappell and UK music producer Pete Waterman, as the lead vocalist in all-girl rock band “Arcana”, The band were invited to record a demo at one of his studios.

Lisa then became the lead singer of an all-girl rock/metal covers band “The Playgirls” playing at various rock and biker festivals across the UK.

A few years later Lisa wrote & recorded songs for her own ep, “Windows of the Soul” which was then showcased on Londons premier talk radio station LBC , attracting a fantastic public response.

During this time Lisa was also singing and touring with the legendary rhythm & blues singer Clarence Tex Walker (The Drifters & The Coasters) & she also headed a folk/pop band called “Wildwood”.

It was hearing Windows of the Soul that brought Lisa to the attention of Ian Jones of Karnataka & record producer Steve Evans. She was asked to join a new rock/celtic/ambient project Chasing The Monsoon with Steve, Ian & guitarist Ian Simmons & she helped write & record the vocals for this album, which blends world music rhythms, ambient soundscapes with rock and celtic influences. The album is available to purchase now from Amazon  and via the band website.

Ian Jones meanwhile, also asked Lisa to join “Karnataka” as lead vocalist, which she did for five years, writing & performing all the vocals on the award winning Karnataka album “The Gathering Light” which received an amazing response and some fantastic reviews. Lisa’s performance on the album earned her two nominations for best female vocalist at the Classic Rock Society awards.

After five years with the band, Lisa decided in May 2010 that it was time to leave Karnataka. She has moved ahead to provide her unique style of vocals and songwriting talents for several different TV & film score companies and for other musicians around the world.

The award winning Karnataka album “The Gathering Light”, co-written & recorded by Lisa, is still available to buy at Amazon.

 

Lisa’s next project was not long in coming – In late 2010 she began work with multi-instrumentalist Dave John Ross, creating “Lirium” a musical project combining a tapestry of multi-layered soundscapes and ethereal harmonies drawing influences from many genres without limitations, which gathered a huge interest in the USA.
