More About Lisa Bouchelle:
Lisa Bouchelle is an artist on the move. Not only is her career on a strong upward spiral, but it seems she personally never stops moving, as she averages over 200 shows a year. She has toured and/or opened for artists such as Meat Loaf, Blues Traveler, Train, Ted Nugent, Bryan Adams, Don Felder of The Eagles, Ingrid Michaelson, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, The Wailers, and many others.

Lisa’s independent releases have reached #1 on two indie charts, and #4 on the college charts. And while she may still be an underground artist to many fans, she has the respect of her fellow musicians, as evidenced by the fact that her recordings have contributions from John Popper and Brendan Hill of Blues Traveler, Rob Hyman of The Hooters, the legendary David Bromberg, chart-topping World Music artist Erin Hill, guitarist Bobby Bandiera (Bon Jovi), violinist Lorenza Ponce (Sheryl Crow), and hit songwriters such as John Eddie (Kid Rock) and Glen Burtnik (Styx),
Lisa started singing at the age of four, because although her parents loved her deeply, the only time they would stop arguing was when little Lisa sang. So she sang every chance she got, feeling it was her job to keep harmony in the family. Now, after losing both her parents, she still sings every chance she gets, whether it be driving thousands of miles across the US on her own, which she’s done several times while doing solo tours, or playing in the train station for tips. In fact, she was interviewed on NPR Radio about her experiences “busking” in the Philadelphia train station.

Lisa also managed to find time to create and host the TV show “Rock Star Kitchen,” in which she schmoozes with platinum selling artists in her kitchen, talking about music and touring, while cooking up their favorite dishes. The show quickly became the top-rated original content show on The Comcast Network in the Philadelphia region, and is currently in talks for national and international syndication. Lisa also made an appearance on the hit TV show Gossip Girl, and had a starring role in an off-Broadway production. Read more about Bouchelle’s inspiring journey, here: ,
