“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…but she also can cut loose and funk with fierceness and rock with abandon,” raves MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE. Band members are: LISA FISCHER (vocals), JC MAILLARD (guitar), THIERRY ARPINO (percussion/drums) and RICHIE GOODS (bass).
After four decades of featured background singing with icons like Luther Vandross, The Rolling Stones, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, and Nine Inch Nails, 2x-GRAMMY® Award-Winning Artist MS. LISA FISCHER takes center stage with her own humble, heartfelt song. The 2013 "Best Documentary" Oscar-Winning film, Twenty Feet from Stardom, altered the course of Lisa's musical journey, telling her story, with clips of her legendary duets with Sting and with Mick Jagger on "Gimme Shelter." The film left audiences eager to see and hear more, so Lisa took the chance to set out on her own, reinventing classic songs with her co-conspirators JC Maillard & Grand Baton. Their organic fusion of Caribbean psychedelic soul and jazzy progressive rock ignited Lisa's flexibility & freedom of expression, awakening her lifelong desire to make music that heals but still rocks the house. Previously, she joined the Rolling Stones for their 1989 Steel Wheels tour & continued to grace their stage for the next 26 years.
