An Intimate COVID-19 safe solo concert with Australian Singer and Songwriter Lisa Richards. She will be performing songs from her new album "I Got A Story" releasing on 13 November 2020.
Shortly before the world slowed right down, Australian singer and songwriter Lisa Richards recorded her seventh independent album “I Got A Story” in New York City.
Lisa says, "The world is a cornucopia of stories, waiting to be told. The personal and the universal, the visible and the invisible. That's what humans have always done, collected and told stories".
She’s doing a short run of solo shows in 2020, with each show having a very limited number of tickets due to current health and safety regulations.
Lisa Richards bends the traditions of folk, blues and jazz while carving out her own musical corner of the world.
She has a life story that could easily grace the silver screen, from Acapella busking in Kings Cross, Sydney, to hanging out with Debbie Harry at SXSW, playing CBGB’s in NYC as well as living in both New York City and Austin Texas for many years, before returning home to Australia in 2014.
Lisa's songs have appeared on compilations, sharing the track list with heavyweights including Adele, Nina Simone and Corinne Bailey Rae.
The album was recorded in NYC in 2019 with the support of an ArtsACT grant.
