Fischer’s name might not be familiar but if you listen closely, her voice is everywhere. From records by Luther Vandross, Billy Ocean, Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin and Alicia Keys, to live shows from Tina Turner, Chaka Khan and Dolly Parton, Fischer has provided the vocal backdrop and harmonies to some of best-known songs of the past four decades.
After four decades of singing background for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa Fischer is stepping into the spotlight!
Lisa is finally offering her own humble, heartfelt songs, accompanied by her inventive new band Grand Baton, whose organic fusion of African, Middle Eastern, and Caribbean rhythms, psychedelic soul, and progressive rock ignites her flexibility and freedom of expression!
It was the breakout success of the Oscar-winning documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom (2013) that altered the course of Lisa’s musical journey. Featuring clips of Lisa’s 1991 Grammy-winning R&B hit “How Can I Ease The Pain,” her legendary duet with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter,” and glowing testimonials from famous colleagues like Sting, Patti Austin, and Chris Botti, the film showcased her virtuosity and vulnerability, earned her a second Grammy award, and left audiences eager to see and hear more.
“Lisa Fischer in concert is addictive. Every performance is so enriching, so exciting, so transcendent that you want more. With remarkable vocal range and vocabulary, Fischer can sing soul, jazz, rock, gospel, pop, folk and classical with equal facility and authority…Her approach tends to be intimate, artful and almost meditative, accompanied by her interpretive dancing, but she also can cut loose and funk with fierceness and rock with abandon.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune, July 2016)
“The hair on the back of your neck stands up. The display of vocal magic was mesmerizing.”
- The Edmonton Sun
“[A] wondrous instrument that can seamlessly blend classical, jazz, soul, gospel, rock and folk.”
- Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Her glamorous-girl-next-door quality makes fans all over the world think she’s their own secret discovery.”
- Broadway World
