A Light From The Other Side is the new album from Australian singer-songwriter, Lisa Richards, who has developed her very own brand of jazz infused folk, with a few hints of blues and roots music too.
Growing up in North Queensland, Australia, was difficult for Lisa; her Mother who was formerly a concert pianist, had moved there for her Father and thus Lisa’s childhood became a turbulent time. Alcohol and substance abuse were issues from a young age, but Lisa eventually fled her troubles to the city where she would pursue a career in music.

Lisa’s travels and experiences have woven a rich tapestry of musical styles into her own work, resulting in the artist she is today. As a result, her eclectic, yet endearing sound has seen her compared with the likes of Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen, Amy Winehouse and even Ella Fitzgerald.
Despite this, Lisa has been gifted with a voice like no one else’s that will immediately stop you in your tracks the first time you hear it; it’s truly like nothing else.
A Light From The Other Side is out now and was produced with the help of renowned singer-songwriter/producer, Greg J. Walker.
