Lisa Christian

WHEN: May 22 - Dec 18
PRICE: Free admission.
DETAILS:
Lisa Christian has spent the past decade playing her clever songs, lush vocal skills, phenomenal guitar talent, and witty stage repartee as a full-time nightclub musician throughout the southeastern United States. Her music is influenced by the soul she grew up listening to in Philadelphia, home of music legends Gamble and Huff, Teddy Pendergrass, Hall and Oates, and Todd Rundgren. Lisa picked up her first guitar at age 11 and was fronting a garage band by the time she was 12. Now a successful solo artist based on the Gulf Coast, Lisa is the classic decade-long overnight success story.  In a time where so much music is artificially produced, she is a throwback to a long-gone era of singers and musicians who got on stage and worked and sweated over every note, every night, without the crutch of backing tracks or pitch-correction devices. It’s just Lisa Christian, in total control of her voice and instrument.
