Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton

 

Lisa Fischer is best known for her Grammy award-winning, number 1 hit single, “How Can I Ease The Pain.” She also won the Grammy for “Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female,” an honor she shared with Patti LaBelle. She’s a legendary background singer, who’s been mentored by Luther Vandross and is cherished by Mick Jagger. Her career is captured in the 2013, Oscar-winning documentary, “2o Feet From Stardom.”

Grand Baton describes their genre as: Caribbean Beats & Heavy Rock / Dubstep / Noises / Bit-crushed Guitars

- “By any measure of talent and accomplishment, Lisa Fischer is a superstar. Yet, if you do not know her name, it’s likely because she has spent the vast majority of her professional career as a backup singer for Luther Vandross, the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti, and countless others. As one of the top session and backup singers, she’s featured in the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom and also celebrated for her live concert duets of “Gimme Shelter” with Mick Jagger, which have received millions of hits on YouTube. Her astonishing range, spot-on intonation, mastery of the stage, and infectious sweet smile make her the go-to singer for the likes of Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Beyoncé, Bobby McFerrin, Lou Reed, Dionne Warwick, and Aretha Franklin. After winning Grammy Awards for “Best Female R&B Performance” (1992) and “Best Music Film,” she is putting together her own band and claiming her well-deserved place center stage.” ums.org/performances
