Ms. Lisa Fischer is stepping into the spotlight at last. After four decades of singing background for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa is finally offering her own humble, heartfelt songs.
Lisa Fischer and her band first set out on tour in 2014, with no product to sell, no recordings or video to help book or promote shows, no t-shirts. Despite all that, based on reputation alone, they were invited to play in clubs, at the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals, and at concert halls all over the globe. Along the way, they won accolades from critics, devotion from fans, and — always – invitations to return soon. Their music is an organic gumbo of progressive rock, psychedelic soul, and African, Middle Eastern, Caribbean rhythms and classical influences. In performance, they re-invent songs by Led Zeppelin, Amy Grant, Little Willie John, and The Rolling Stones as well as Fletcher’s originals. After decades bringing raw soul to the stage for The Rolling Stones, Sting, Luther Vandross, Tina Turner, and Nine Inch Nails, she is emerging as the most inventive and heartfelt interpreter of classic rock songs working today. Fletcher won her first GRAMMY for “How Can I Ease the Pain,” from her 1991 album So Intense. The Oscar-winning 2013 documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom changed the course of Fletcher’s musical journey. Featuring clips of her legendary duet with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter” and glowing testimonials from famous colleagues, the film showcased her virtuosity and vulnerability, earned her a second GRAMMY, 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. She often mixes styles in the same song, sometimes in the same vocal line. 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
