Lisa Fischer is a powerhouse performer who can
make time stand still.

The unexpected breakout star of the Oscar Winning documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom (2013), Fischer’s original break came working with R&B legend Luther Vandross. After four decades as one of the world’s most indemand backup singers, bringing raw soul to the likes of The Rolling Stones, Nine Inch Nails, Tina Turner and Beyoncé,  Fischer has made centre stage undeniably and rightfully her own.

Drawing from an eclectic palette of influences, Fischer joins forces with Caribbean jazz rock fusion band Grand Baton to transform soulful originals, recast rock anthems from her tours with the Stones and Turner, and put her stamp on the likes of Led Zeppelin and Little Willie John.

A spellbinding artist with monumental range and versatility, ‘if transcendence were a musical genre, Lisa Fischer would be its Queen’ (Pop Matters).
