lisa & tony

Lisa & Tony met at a rally against woodchipping, got married at a blockade and had their honeymoon in a tree sit.

The music of Lisa & Tony is an original acoustic mix of folk, hip hop and reggae with a big sound, in their ecclectic hipopolitical style.

"It's like folk hip hop," said old time friend of the band Andy O'Phee.

They have supported Dana Lyons (Cows with Guns), played The Tilba Festival, supported Charlie McMahon and gone live to air on 2EAR FM.

Lisa plays acoustic guitar, stomp box, ukelele, tambourine, keyboards and vocals, quite often at the same time, and Tony plays bass.

Lisa has played with Rory McLeod, Shane Howard, Kev Carmody to name a few and jammed with The Tiddahs, JigZag, Pennelope Swales, Veren Grigorov (Fourplay and now Arabesk), Charlie McMahon, Greg Sheehan and countless others. She has played venues such as The Phonecian Club, The Annandale, The Sando and The Espy.

Tony is well known as a poet and a forest activist. He also plays Celtic Harp and ukelele.

Lisa attributes their success to date to Stompy, the third member of the band.
"Stompy does all the work, he doesnt argue and doesnt want paying - he is truly altruistic," she said.
"I do it for the love of it...and the sex," said Stompy.
