Prolific New Zealand born, now LA based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Lisa Crawley grew up teaching the other kids in her class how to play the recorder. Three EP’s, two albums and numerous singles later, she’s charming audiences across national and international stages performing her extensive repertoire of original music. Together with her natural ear for music and a refreshingly honest onstage presence, she produces heartfelt, authentic pop songs.
The push and pull of her musical vision has taken her the world over, seeing her grace stages in the UK, Asia, USA, Europe, SXSW, Canadian Music Week, and was selected twice for the songwriters residency at the prestigious Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Three times nominated for the Silver Scroll award, the talented writer has been heard across the world on various movies, commercials and television shows – most recently on US TV shows ‘Stumptown’, ‘Proven Innocent’ and award winning film ‘WARU’.
Creatively insatiable, the last few years has seen Crawley finding time in between writing and composing her own music (recent singles include ‘Show You What Love Is‘ and Tragedy Boy’), arranging and performing her own songs for Symphony Orchestras and opening for the likes of Suzanne Vega, John Mayer, Jools Holland, Paul Weller, to name a few. A natural collaborator, Lisa has worked on projects with Tim Finn, Greg Johnson, Hugo Race and created her original show ‘Elizabeth’ with Bullet Heart Club (Daffodils),
Recently signed to ‘Think Music’ licensing company and now based in Los Angeles, Lisa has been writing and recording new material and recently returned to New Zealand to star as ‘GIRL’ in the Tony Award winning musical ‘Once’, gaining rave reviews.
