Powerful, legendary vocal
Lisa Fischer is stepping into the spotlight at last. After four decades of singing background for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa is finally offering her own humble, heartfelt song, accompanied by her inventive new band, Grand Baton. The breakout success of the Oscar-winning documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom (2013) altered the course of Lisa’s musical journey.
Featuring clips of Lisa’s 1991 Grammy-winning R&B hit “How Can I Ease The Pain” and her legendary duet with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter,” and glowing testimonials from famous colleagues like Sting, Patti Austin, and Chris Botti, the film showcased her virtuosity and vulnerability, earned her a second Grammy award. Lisa’s vocal range is legendary, but her greatest gift is the ability to reach the hearts of her listeners.
