Somewhere in Southern California involving leopard, fake fur, co-dependent band members and the beach, there’s a blonde who makes music. Now working as a solo artist, singer and songwriter Lisa Monroe’s love of melody is apparent in songs that combine lush layers and pop hooks, some with electronic beats. Growing up in a musical family Lisa’s approach to writing is pretty effortless, but as a producer, she admits she can be a bit obsessive.
Forming her first band while working as an actor, Lisa’s music has earned favorable reviews in magazines like Buzz, “We like that kind of confident attitude – especially when it’s backed up by good musicianship, deep, intelligent lyrics, and songs that are simultaneously retro and contemporary”.
Lisa has collaborated on projects with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, Wayne Hussey of The Mission UK, and an emerging hip hop artist, among others, and likes working in different musical genres.
Having played extensive live shows, including the El Rey in Los Angeles, Lisa is currently writing new songs for a follow-up to her self-produced EP HEART GOES BOOM, set for release soon. Her music has been featured and is in rotation on radio stations around the world. Lisa is based in Los Angeles.
