"Why do such sweet faced girls write such dark foreboding songs", writes Dallas Observer critic, Darryl Smyers of Lisa Warner's music. Lisa's lyrics paint familiar pictures without sentiment or judgment. Her songs tell stories through the juxtapositon of old and new, good and bad, ugly and beautiful. Her country gothic tales bring the listener down an uncluttered trail of human frailty and strength. Rooted in a lifetime of listening to American country and roots music, Lisa has developed her own vocal style that ranges from lilting whispers to growling blues. John's guitar work is an excellent compliment to this duo's sound. Lisa plays acoustic rhythm while he adds rich textures on electric guitar as well as playing melodic slide. Lisa and John sing Everly Brothers style harmonies on both their covers and originals. Their influences range from obscure blues artists like Geechie Wylie to the intoxicating rhythms of Bo Diddley. Lisa is inspired by vocalists such as Norma Waterson and Hank Williams. Writers like Townes VanZandt and Gene Clark heavily influence this duo's style. Lisa and John live in Dallas and perform locally as well as traveling to festivals in the region. Lisa homeschools her children and pursues songwriting and performing in Dallas and throughout the surrounding areas.
