Biography

“Bound for glory…an exquisite slice of traditional songwriting” – The Times

Lisbee Stainton, the London-based 22 year-old singer-songwriter known as, ‘The English Rose With The 8-String Guitar’, has been writing songs for almost 13 years. She graduated only last year from Goldsmiths University with a degree in Popular Music and already with her first album under her belt, ‘Firefly’, in which she collaborated with Guildford-based producer, Rain. You can find it on itunes or Amazon.

Lisbee originally launched her career four years ago, when she became the first unsigned singer-songwriter to play London’s O2 Arena, performing to a 30,000 strong audience. However, it was when BBC 6Music DJ Tom Robinson asked Lisbee for a copy of ‘Red’ after hearing it on Lisbee’s MySpace page that the ball really started rolling. Describing Lisbee on air as “a serious young talent”, it was Robinson’s subsequent support which led to her single, ‘Red’ eventually being playlisted at BBC Radio 2 in January 2009: only the third ever unsigned artist to be Radio 2 playlisted after Katy Melua and Eva Cassidy. Both of her next two singles, ‘Just Like Me’ and ‘Never Quite an Angel’ where subsequently play listed on Radio 2 as well. That support from Tom has continued ever since, with Lisbee returning to play a live session on Tom’s show in April 2009: in Tom’s words “Wow! Sensational! Absolutely Mint!’ The success of ‘Red’ subsequently saw Lisbee making numerous radio & TV appearances, including live sessions on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6music and BBC Hereford and Worcester, as well as being tipped in the press as ‘one to watch for 2010’.
