Still working on that hot first release.



Although blues has been a big influence in Lisa Scherma’s writing, it is obvious she has been inspired by many different styles of music in that her body of work also includes country, folk, rock, jazz, gospel, Americana and acoustic ballads. Feeling it would stifle her creativity, Lisa likes to refer to herself as “genre-non-specific”. In this way, she explains, she can write as the inspiration comes without having to adhere to any particular format or expectation. In her words, “Just because I haven’t written a reggae song yet, doesn’t mean I won’t!”

With powerful, emotion-filled vocals, her eclectic style has been compared to the likes of Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt, and Trisha Yearwood.  She considers herself a musical storyteller and believes the most important thing is to tell the story right; musically, vocally and emotionally.  

 Now living in Staten Island, New York, with her husband and daughter, in 2013, Lisa was recognized as a noted Staten Island Blues Musician and inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.  She has been performing in the tristate area most recently as a full band with exceptional musicians, lead guitarist Guy Michetti, bassist, Gardy Louis and drummer, Mike Kane.
