Lisa Kirchner is a singer, songwriter and actress who performs an eclectic, multi-lingual repertoire that includes jazz standards from The Great American Songbook, French and Brazilian classics, folk, theatre and art songs as well as her own lyrics and music. “My father, a contemporary classical composer, conductor and pianist, took me to see Ray Charles, played and analyzed Duke Ellington songs with me, and pointed out the brilliance of a young guitarist named Jimi Hendrix, as we discussed Mozart, Bach and Schoenberg. My mother was a coloratura soprano who had performed classical lieder and show tunes in New York supper clubs”. A singer of remarkable versatility, Lisa’s musical journey has led her from classical piano, operetta and folk songs to cabaret and musical theatre on and off Broadway to a brand of ambient jazz as eclectic as her musical background.
