Lisa’s first contribution to the Naked sound was “You are Love” by Lovetronic and after many collaborations with Naked artists and producers - Blue Six, Central Living, Petalpusher, Aquanote - she signed as a solo artist in 2001. Her debut single for Naked Music was the worldwide underground classic “Always”.
Lisa has received rave reviews and features in The New York Times, CMJ, Muzik, URB, The Canadian National Post, Billboard, XLR8R and many others. She has also performed live on The David Letterman Show as a backing vocalist for Jewel. Madonna paid tribute to “Always” in Rolling Stones and proclaimed Lisa to be “So Cool!”
Throughout her career, she's played and recorded in a diverse range of musical styles, ranging from deep house, avant-garde hip-hop, trip-hop, acoustic soul and drum and bass. She also performed live at the Prohibited Beatz party with Nerve, a fusion band led by drummer/producer Jojo Mayer where Takuya Nakamura (Organic Grooves/Ism), Tim Lefevbre and DJ Swingsett also appeared. Lisa has also collaborated with Itaal Shur, Lucy Woodward & Mark Anthony Jones.
Over the last three years Lisa has performed live throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and the US with label-mate Miguel Migs, as well as working on her debut solo album with producers Eric Stamile (Speakeasy), Jay Denes (Blue Six) and co-writer Dave Warrin. This is scheduled to be released the summer of 2005. She is currently putting together a live outfit called Pedal Pusher with Miguel Migs for touring next year, but will continue to do her live PAs with Miguel as well.
There are many new projects and collaborations in store for Lisa over the next few years. Much, much more music to come.
