Lish has been singing professionally in Detroit for over ten years. In addition to her vocal ability, her live performance is dynamic and energetic, as she has been performing in both musical and dramatic productions since childhood. Her experience includes musical theatre, classical choral training and dance.
Lish has had the pleasure of performing many different genres of music – from 50’s to alternative rock to R&B to movie soundtracks. Her versatility and technique have allowed her to perform a variety of styles and venues including: The National Anthem as a three part harmony, a cappela arrangement at semi-pro baseball games and syndicated horse races to Las Vegas; back-up singing for recording artists such as Johnny Preston; an acoustic act; rockin’ original act at bars, clubs and festivals; 50’s and 80’s throwback including costumes and high-energy, choreographed shows; live in-studio radio spots; studio recording and musical theatre.
All of these pieces come together when she is on stage to produce a truly entertaining and aesthetically pleasing experience for all those who are watching and listening.
