Hailing from New Mills, New Brunswick, Lisa Richard is a talented country
singer songwriter who blows away listeners with her powerful vocal range and true passion for music, and thus life. Her vocal stylings have been compared to the likes of Cher, Big Joe Turner and Tracy Chapman. And her genre range extends from rock to blues to country.
Lisa Richard began demonstrating her vocal talents at the bright young age of four. She immediately entered the music business by belting out ‘Ballroom Blitz’ for family and friends, charging a quarter per performance. By the time she found herself in university, she began a two-year stint singing harmonies and backup with local band Frank Perry’s Slice in Toronto at such notable venues as the Horseshoe Tavern, Lee’s Palace, and the Opera House. Eventually Lisa returned back east to settle in Halifax. It was not long before she was inspired by Theresa Melenfant and her powerhouse pipes. ~ Lisa Richard Facebook
