Lisa Michelle is a singer, songwriter and actor from Toronto. Born and raised in Mississauga, she's been performing for audiences since she was 6 years old - from piano & dance recitals to church solos, high school plays and community theatre musicals in her teens. But it was the emergence of the "Neo Soul" movement in the late 90s that inspired her to find her own voice and sound. Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and D'Angelo are just some of the artists whose poetic, jazz-infused soul music encouraged her to stop singing... and SANG!
Between 2009 and 2012 she co-wrote, recorded and independently released 3 R&B albums and had over 100 live performances in the city of Toronto. Her band was given featured performance spots for Canadian Music Week, Irie Music Fest (in Dundas Square) and the Montreal Jazz Festival. Songs from her albums Love Lessons, Rebound & This Moment can be heard on CBC Radio, CHRY FM and are available on iTunes.
Lisa Michelle's love for R&B and Neo Soul music runs deep, but it's not an exclusive affair. As a multi-disciplinary artist, she's also an actor on TV, Film, commercials and frequents the stage as a musical theatre performer.
