GRAMMY Nominated for "Best Zydeco or Cajun Album," Lisa Haley stands out among the finest violinists and vocalists in contemporary music today.

Her electric-blue violin "Louie," soulful songwriting, boundless energy and All-Star band "The Zydekats" are irreversibly compelling!

Bringing modern Zydeco/Cajun to a worldwide audience reaches far beyond a career playing solely traditional genre.

Lisa has worked with Sir George Martin (Beatles producer), multi-Grammy winner/producer Keb Mo', Brian Setzer, John Hiatt, and a host of others.

Her violin is prominent in movies such as "The Waterboy" (Adam Sandler), "The Grave" (Anthony Michael Hall), and HBO’s "Mr. Atlas".

She supports educational "Artist in Residence" programs, and performs worldwide over 150 days a year.

Lisa and her band are endorsed by Realist pickups, Barcus-Berry, Yamaha, Peavey, JBL, Korg, QSC, BBE, Drum Workshop, Paiste, ProTec cases, ProCo cables, and Thomastik strings.
