Grammy Award-winning singer with a powerhouse voice.
The Oscar-winning 2013 documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom changed the course of Lisa Fischer’s musical journey. Lisa is a musical legend. Until the documentary, she had never put her own band together, but had toured with Luther Vandross, The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner and Sting. Now, after years of supporting other artists, electrifying the world’s largest arenas with the power of her voice, Lisa Fischer has finally taken centre stage.
With her band Grand Baton, Lisa now performs worldwide. 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 Lisa’s originals, including her 1991 Grammy Award- winning single, How Can I Ease the Pain. Lisa received a second Grammy for Twenty Feet from Stardom, which showcased her virtuosity and vulnerability as a backing singer and featured clips of her legendary duet with Mick Jagger on Gimme Shelter and glowing testimonials from famous colleagues.
A versatile performer, Lisa has worked in theatre and has recently expanded her repertoire to include work with concert pianist Lang Lang and with previous Festival artists Alonzo King LINES Ballet and Yo-Yo Ma.
