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.

In 2017, Lisa released ‘Wedding Band’, recorded by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Leonard Cohen) at the prestigious Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity where Crawley participated in an artists residency working with an all star grammy nominated faculty in Canada. The song gained heavy rotation on RRR and community radio around Australia and New Zealand.

Prior to ‘Wedding Band’, Melbourne based Crawley released EP ‘Up In The Air’ with the title track becoming a finalist in the 2016 Vanda and Young Competition, which Lisa arranged and performed with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra. 2017

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, Simply Red as well as locals David Bridie and Holly Throsby.

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.
