When Lisa sings, her voice carries us to a soundscaped garden where she soulfully unveils messages that are fresh and ripe with wisdom, fantasy and possibility. It's crystal-clear that this 4-octave beauty settles for nothing less than giving the best of herself to her music.
Lisa's journey to uncovering her true musical self began with longtime friend and musical partner, Thomas Linsk. Lisa, a classically-trained vocalist, and Tom, a studied jazz pianist, blended their distinctly different backgrounds with a common goal in mind - to break into the Chicago's nightlife. Youthful, driven and dedicated, the duo traded their social lives for many-a-late-night shows in smoky clubs and Hotels, eventually emerging as one of the hottest shows in Chicago. Lisa's vision for all that was possible grew with the show's success. Still deeply committed to the Tom & Lisa show
In LA, Lisa collaborated with Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo)
Growing up, Lisa and her family lived a simple life. The family of seven shared a two-bedroom, one bathroom home across from Midway Airport in Chicago. Sure, Lisa remembers the occasional clamor over the bathroom, but mostly, she recalls the real, raw "connection" she had with her family. "People and relationships are what ground me - they are the true inspiration for my music," she acknowledges. This simple truth, the idea that sometimes less is more, is what guided Lisa back to Chicago, where she currently lives with her husband & biggest fan, Perry, and surrounds herself with people and relationships that truly inspire her.
Now a new chapter begins, drawing on her influences and wealth of life experiences Lisa is embarking on her maiden voyage as a solo artist combined with the talents of friend and mentor Grammy award winner singer/songwriter (Eye of the Tiger, The Search is Over, Vehicle), Lisa is about to release the CD of her life. The self titled, Peterik produced disc will be released worldwide (May 2010) including future standard Roses for No Reason , Come Dancing , as well as an adult contemporary cover of one of Jim's chestnuts, Hold On Loosely. "This album draws from and expands on the work I did on Jim Peterik's Lifeforce
"My hope is that people will see themselves in my music…. see that there's more out there… uncover the truth in their soul…" Passion with purpose. That's Lisa McClowry.
