She "gloriously sings her heart out and reveals a piece of her soul every night," according to the Rolling Stones Fanzine. The New York times calls her "a star.. earthy and emotive."
Lisa is featured in the Oscar-winning documentary feature 20 Feet From Stardom, which turns the spotlight on the backup singers behind some of the musical legends of our time. Huffpost reports that "it's clear that Lisa Fischer is deeply and internally in love with the act of singing, utterly and blissfully present in the welling up of each note, in the zone of the sublime."
