Bio

There’s an unlikeness to Sydney Artist Lisa Caruso that left a mark on avid listeners after
the success of her first releases. With an utterly unique vocal that bleeds honesty and
conviction, Lisa’s songs scream empathetic feelings. Fronting a band full of guts, expect
boldness in heart on sleeve lyrics and arrangements nostalgic of the 60’s and 90’s indie
eras.
Teaming up with guitarist Benjamin Fletcher (Sarah Blasko, Marina and the Diamonds) on
production first in the UK and then in OZ has actualised Lisa’s desire to create authentic
music. Since impressing Australian audiences with brooding track ‘Shake Baby Shake’ in
November last year, the song about invisible illness has raised eyebrows, earning its way
onto popular American NBC series ‘Good Girls’. Attaining praise from larger audiences
around the world, Lisa accelerated at full speed with single number two, revealing a
raucous attitude in ‘A Holiday’.
With plenty more to come, this next release is being described as ‘disrobed and romantic’.
Unveiling another layer of her work, ‘Borrow my Body’ is a ‘smooth ride’, as suggested by
producer Ben. A shimmering peek into what else can be expected from this charming
songstress’ long awaited debut album, due out later this year.

Searching, slow burning material by Lisa. It's worth spending some time with.

Big fan of temptation and futile liaisons... other people's obviously, hey I'm not a masochist. You've captured that sweet ecstasy well Lisa. The awesome howl slightly overshadows the underlying vocals, otherwise I'm there howling with you and desperately trying to stay on key.

My favourite song of yours yet. It's nicely put together but has a loose spirit that's really endearing. Can't wait to hear the record.
