Lisa Jayne Strong

Lisa was volunteered for a Christmas solo by her friends at Primary school and hasn’t stopped singing since. Lisa discovered a passion for musicals during her time at the Royal Hospital School gaining top marks in dramatic art and performed as Tallulah in Bugsy Malone and the title role of Iolanthe in the Gilbert and Sullivan show. Lisa has sung in many prestigious concerts during her choral career such as the Royal Albert hall, St Pauls Cathedral and St Marks Basilica in Venice. Lisa moved away from her firm choral grounding to experiment in several rock and acoustic bands before finding a genre she felt passion for; Jazz. She has performed her style of funky Jazz standards with the John Allan Trio for 15 years and more recently guests as the singer for a local Big Band. Lisa sings locally in pubs and clubs as well as bringing a smile and love of music to residential homes in the local area. Lisa plays guitar and can often be found at local open mic nights. She is currently working on further musical projects channelling her inner Shirley Bassey. Lisa has been influenced by many artists including Madonna , Eva Cassidy, Tori Amos and Ella Fitzgerald.
