Recently returned from Paris, where she sang for the last 5 months, she sings timeless standards from the 40's and 50's. She has been described as a glass of Champagne, cool, refreshing and mildly intoxicating.
Lisa Lindsley may be a latecomer to singing jazz, but her love for the genre shows up in the way she sings a song. Her years as a professional actress, lends itself to the emotional connection of a song. She toured extensively with The Imagination Company, a professional theatre company based in LA for 10 years before settling down in the Bay Area where she now sings jazz with a twist, and records Voice Over for video games, as well as radio and TV commercials.
"One of my passions is to record Voice Over, or VO as we in the industry call it. Princess Leia was a favorite of mine to record for Mr. Lucas, I also loved Banana Republic, Safeway weekly ads and Saroka for League of Legends (“Yes, that is a horn on my head!”) Other fun VO’s have included, District 9, Salt, Murder She Wrote, and Disney’s Pixie Hollow. I record for clients all over the world"
