On April 28, the Living Arts Centre presents: Ms. Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton in Hammerson Hall.
Unlike many other backup singers profiled in Morgan Neville’s 2013 Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom,
Lisa Fischer did not yearn to be a lead singer despite her immense vocal talent. It isn’t surprising though that she became one of the film’s breakout stars, and has been touring with her new band, Grand Baton.
After singing background for icons such as the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, and Nine Inch
Nails, Lisa Fischer ignites her passionate, masterful voice with a fusion of African, Middle Eastern and Caribbean rhythms,
psychedelic soul, and progressive rock. Her years influenced by atmospheric rock are apparent, and with the help of her three-piece band, Ms. Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton work through arrangements of classic jazz, pop and rock tunes with refreshing new twists and turns.
