Lisa Fischer is stepping into the spotlight at last. After four decades of singing background for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, and Nine Inch Nails, Fischer is finally offering her own humble, heartfelt song, accompanied by her inventive new band Grand Baton. The breakout success of the Oscar-winning documentary, Twenty Feet from Stardom altered the course of her musical journey. Featuring clips of Fischer’s 1991 GRAMMY winning R&B hit, ‘How Can I Ease The Pain’ and her legendary duet with Mick Jagger on ‘Gimme Shelter,’ and glowing testimonials from famous colleagues like Sting, Patti Austin, and Chris Botti, the film showcased her virtuosity and vulnerability, earned her a second GRAMMY Award, and left audiences eager to see and hear more.
‘It’s an exciting new chapter for an artist who had early career success but eschewed the trappings of celebrity in favor of making honest music every night. Ms. Lisa Fischer is on a creative journey, destination unknown.’ – Broadway World
