Lisa Richards www.lisarichardsmusic.com
With a voice described as both ferocious and sweet, and a percussive guitar style, Lisa Richards writes songs of longing, loss, love and hope. Songs steeped in musical expressiveness and lyrical succinctness, borrowing from the traditions of folk, blues and jazz with her feet firmly planted in her own musical corner of the world. Driven by a desire to be seen, to understand the world and the human condition and to share what she sees with others. She has busked acapella in Kings Cross, Sydney, hung out with Debbie Harry at SXSW in Austin, Texas, and played CBGB’s in NYC. She continued to move further and further afield, living in The USA for 22 years, before returning home to Australia many years later.
Lisa's songs have appeared on compilations, sharing the track list with heavyweights including Adele, Nina Simone and Corinne Bailey Rae. She’s performed at The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Merlefest, SXSW and CMJ. Lisa’s current album “I got a Story’ is her seventh album and was recorded in NYC as Covid-19 was arriving in the world at the end of 2020. 2022 will be the year of finally sharing these new songs as she plans a year of touring this album in Australia, as well as releasing a new album "Waiting to Fly" written and recorded during the vagaries of Lockdown. "Richards is a simple yet powerful songwriter who has beautifully encapsulated the intricacies of the human condition." Emily Ritchie The Australian
This is a performer we will support anywhere and everywhere, in the hopes that she will catch on here and all over the world." Bob Schetter and Marilyn Owen, venue hosts/bookers, Camarillo Cafe, California
