American singer-songwriter Lisa Doscher performs uplifting, soul-folk with stomping rhythms and lush harmonies using her live looper. Her nature-themed lyrics and soundscapes invite you to reconnect to the world through your senses, while her ability to lead the whole room in song will make you feel part of something special, singing or clapping along, leaving you uplifted.
"A voice like Joni Mitchell."
-Will Gompertz, BBC Radio Oxford
Lisa began writing songs and performing with her sister when she was 20. Early influences were the Indigo Girls and Ani DiFranco. Her career was a winding road as she travelled and worked as both a teacher and energy healing practitioner, which inspired her songwriting. Lisa honed her craft while singing with Olympia's Daughters, a women's a cappella ensemble, and later with the New Hampshire Master Chorale. Her travels took her to Georgia (southern USA) where she had the privilege of singing impromptu a cappella with local old-time Gospel singers, as well as singing for a short time with the legendary Albany Civil Rights Freedom Singers led by Rutha Harris.
Lisa released her first full-length album, 'Return Home' in 2014, which was the gathering of 15 years of writing and learning. In 2015 she started a choir, 'Voices of the Vale,' to fulfil her longing to sing in community. After having a baby and playing occasional gigs for a few years, Lisa found herself in lockdown in 2020 getting back to performing, now online, and rekindling her love of songwriting and connecting with people through song. Her songwriting shifted to a more multi-layered a cappella style and she began using a live looper to create harmonic soundscapes. She also wrote and released an album of musical meditations in 2021 called 'Tuning In'.
At present, Lisa is excited to be out gigging again and bringing an exciting new approach which encompasses her love of harmony, introspective songwriting and the transformative power of people being in a room singing and creating together. She is currently working on new songs and getting ready for her 'ENOUGH' tour, which will be just Lisa, her guitar and looper, crafting an immersive and creative experience that will be empowering for listeners and hopefully inspire them to believe in themselves and their ability to transform the world by using their gifts and becoming themselves.
