Not only a blues shouter in the tradition of Big Joe Turner and Wynonie Harris, this Boston native carries on the sweet gospel soul of Sam Cooke, the yearning of Hank Williams, and the boisterous, cartoonish fun of Louis Jordan. From jump-swing to swamp boogie, hill country blues to funky New Orleans grooves, her deep husky vocals express an unmistakeable joy.
Lisa Marie tells her audience that "joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin." This woman is a storyteller, with a gift that allows you to fall deeply in love with a song - sometimes one you may have heard before, but never have you heard it done quite like this... Innovative, creative vocal and musical arrangements that put a new twist on every story.
