Lisa Richard

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.

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 worked​ ​along​side Hal​ ​Bruce​ ​to​ ​produce ​her​ ​debut​ ​EP​ ​'Tangled​ ​Up,' which​ ​was​ ​released​ ​on​ ​January​ ​29th,​ ​2017. The title track of the EP was nominated for Southern Rock Song of the Year at the 2017 Josie Music Awards. While in Nashville for the Josie Awards, she had the opportunity to perform a cover of 'Jolene' with Vince Gill and The Time Jumpers (the video of which has reached approximately 125,000 people on social media). The music video for 'Fisherman's Daughter' was featured at both the 2017 & 2018 New Brunswick Film Festival and is in regular rotation on the Eastlink Network, reaching all of Atlantic Canada.
