Background:

Lisa Sanders grew up in Philadelphia. “My earliest memories about music,” she says, “begin with my mom bringing home a hi-fi and 45 [rpm] records, mostly Motown.” After moving with her family to San Diego, she began writing commercial jingles in L.A., where she was approached to write songs for the Jacksons, though that group’s recording and touring plans never materialized.

After early open-mike performances at Java Joe’s and the Metaphor Cafe, she was signed in 1998 by MCA Records. Her debut album Isn’t Life Fine was produced by Steve Poltz.

In early 2013, she appeared on a new CD called Angel Songs, a charity album recorded to raise funds for Newtown, CT victims that also includes locals Randi Driscoll and Tim Flannery.
