Bio

Prolific New Zealand born multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Lisa Crawley grew up teaching the other kids in her class how to play the recorder. Three EP’s and two albums later, she’s charming audiences across national and international stages performing her extensive repertoire of original music. 

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 for the songwriters residency at the prestigious Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, where singles ‘Wedding Band’, 'Baby It's Fine' and ‘You Got Me’ were created.

Creatively insatiable, the last few years has seen Crawley finding time in between writing and composing her own music, arranging and performing her own songs for Symphony Orchestras and opening for the likes of Suzanne Vega, John Mayer, Jools Holland, Paul Weller, Simply Red, Kimbra, Marlon Williams to name a few.

Whilst working towards her third full length album in Los Angeles with Grammy Nominated producer Rob Kleiner (Sia, The Weekend, LP), Lisa will be starring as 'GIRL' in the award winning musical 'Once', beginning June 2019.

Lisa Crawley is truly a songwriter to watch. Her unique approach to writing and performing allows her to charm pop 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.

"With its Julia Jacklin-esque softness and its raw, somewhat haunting emotiveness, Baby It's Fine is exactly in-line with the rise of emotional pop à la Billie Eilish - although in a more guitar-soaked fashion compared to Eilish's pop-rooted sound - so it'll be super interesting to see where Crawley goes from here in what's bound to be a very, very bright future." - Pilerats.
