Ms. Lisa Fischer is stepping into the spotlight at last. After four decades of singing background vocals for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa 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 (2013) altered the course of Lisa’s musical journey. Featuring clips of Lisa’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. “Ms. Fischer has become the unexpected star of Mr. Neville’s film,” said the New York Times.

Lisa set out on tour with no recordings or video to help book and promote shows, headlining first in small clubs then at the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals, then at concert halls in major cities. In performance, she draws from an eclectic palette of influences, putting her stamp on Led Zeppelin and Little Willie John, recasting rock anthems from her tours with the Stones and Tina Turner. Grand Baton’s organic fusion of African, Middle Eastern, and Caribbean rhythms, psychedelic soul, and progressive rock ignites Lisa’s flexibility.
