With a voice described as both ferocious and sweet and a percussive guitar style, Lisa Richards writes songs of longing, loss, love and hope, borrowing from the traditions of folk, blues and jazz while carving out her own musical corner of the world. 

"Lisa Richards is a power pack and full-on surprise package. A singer songwriter on top of her game, captured the full attention of the audience. You could hear the hearts beating and the feet keeping time."  Michael Fine Troubadour Folk Club Australia

"A captivating performer with a sly wit and an uncanny ability to touch every heart in the room while giving the intellect something to chew on. A songwriter's songwriter!"  Peter Cutler, Fiddlers Crossing California
