Lisa Hunt began singing in that great African American tradition, the gospel church, which establishd the foundation of her soulful singing style. She went on to study voice at The City College of New York (BFA).
Lisa’s studio credits include sessions with famed producers Jellybean Benitez (Madonna), Toni C (Whitney), Frank Farion (LaBouche, Milli Vanilli), The Berman Brothers (Amber, Ultra Nate), and many more. She can be heard in several top 10 dance tracks across the European continent, including her presence as “the voice” of Lovestation (UK), Club X (Germany), and D1 (USA).
In Italy she’s been the featured vocalist on both tour and recordings of Zucchero Sugar Fornaciari for over 15 years. She has worked with a range of artists, from Pavarotti to Ray Charles. (Check her out on “Pavarotti and Friends”.) She has also shared the stage with such musical greats such Eric Clapton, James Brown, Dionne Warwick, Brian May, Randy Crawford, Joe Cocker, Miles Davis, and Andrea Bocelli.
In Australia Lisa has toured and recorded with Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Radio Freedom, and Johny (B. Good) Johnson. Lisa fondly recalls being invited onstage to sing for 50,000 people with Midnight Oil.
Lisa’s debut album was “A Little Piece Of Magic” for Polygram. She has had her songs included on numerous compilations around the globe, as singer and as songwriter, with sales exceeding a million records. That might seem strange to learn about someone you may never have heard, but that’s just global showbiz!
