Lisa Fischer

This is a singer I must have heard lots of times, but not by name. I came across her in the film ’20 Feet from Stardom’, a documentary about backup singers.

Lisa has been a back-up singer for Sting, Luther Vandross, Tina Turner and many more. She toured with The Rolling Stones from 1989 to 2015.

Her career peaked with the 1991 release of ‘How Can I Ease the Pain’ from her album ‘So Intense’, which reached number one on the R&B charts and won her a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1992.

On her own, she is as good, if not better than many in the Soul/R&B music genre.
