Lisa Anderson’s silly, fierce, perky, and passionate indie-pop reflects the struggles and joys of embracing all life has to offer – the dark, the blissful, and the grey in between.
Anderson has captivated audiences around the world with her “beautiful and powerful voice,” as described by Pablo Garcinuño of Spain’s Los 4 Palos Blog. Her self-titled debut album was sponsored and promoted by Spain’s nation-wide radio network Los 40 Principales. She has performed in Spain, France, Italy, the Czech Republic, and Canada.
Since returning to Calgary in 2015, Anderson won an honourable mention at the 2015 Calgary Folk Festival song writing competition for her song “Beautiful Night” and has received praise from the local community. “She is a total package entertainer,” says Lisa Dodd, CCMA award winner. She regularly performs around Canada and is will be releasing her second album “A Hundred Lives” in September 2017.
