Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton

Grammy Award winner LISA FISCHER is a singer known for her wide, high-reaching vocal range. She has been on all tours with the Rolling Stones as a back-up singer since 1989, and she has also toured with Sting, Chris Botti, and Nine Inch Nails. While her duet with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter” has millions of views on YouTube, her name has not appeared on the marquee with these world famous artists. You may have seen her featured in Morgan Neville’s Oscar winning and Grammy winning documentary film Twenty Feet from Stardom, along with many other top session and backup singers like Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, and Patti Austin, who are “the greatest artists you’ve never heard of” (but whose voices are instantly recognizable). In the wake of the movie’s critical and popular success, Lisa has relaunched her solo career. She’s on to a new leg of her journey, destined for centre stage.
