With a back catalogue that boasts two albums and three EPs, coupled with countless collaborations, tours, television appearances and acclaimed music-based projects, Lisa Crawley has well and truly earned her reputation as one of Australasia s most well-respected musicians.

Melbourne based Crawley has recently released her EP Up In The Air featuring single Up In The Air was a finalist in the Vanda and Young Competition. Up In The Air (produced by Ryan Ritchie) builds on the retro vibe of sophmore album All In My Head showcasing a singer-songwriter who has found her place in a dreamy, melodic pop world, with an edgy darkness.

The EP rounds off an exciting year in which Crawley performed at Canadian Music Week in Toronto as part of the Australian line up. She has played a string of shows in Los Angeles and won the LA-based songwriting game show Top Tune a game show where songwriters are given a title and have 17 minutes to write a song. Judges on the show include Ray Parker Jnr and Van Dyke Parkes.

She is of course, no stranger to touring, having travelled the length and breadth of Australia/ NZ as a solo artist and in support of big names in music like Paul Weller, Jools Holland, John Mayer and David Bridie.

2016 began with performances of original songs with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra and an extensive tour opening for Simply Red. Lisa has travelled the world getting by on a song, quite literally. Performances have taken place in Japan, London, SXSW, Canadian Music Week, Australia, China and Denmark to name a few.

Lisa Crawley is truly a songwriter to watch. Her unique approach to writing and performing allows her to charm jazz loving audiences one minute, and command indie credibility the next; her undeniably catchy tunes are bound to stick with even the most casual of listeners.
