From being named on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of Top 25 Women in Creativity to having collaborations alongside global megastars like Kanye West, Chance the Rapper, DJ Khaled, Divine, and Badshah on Grammy Winning and Emmy Nominated projects, Lisa Mishra is a rising sensation - and a force to be reckoned with in the Indian and international music industry. A singer-songwriter by heart, Lisa has captured hearts around the world with not only her captivating voice but her unique musical blend which infuses elements of Western pop and R&B with traditional Indian melodies. Over the years, Lisa has carefully crafted this signature sound that fans know and love.
The Odisha-born and Chicago raised singer first started being noticed for her sheer talent on YouTube, where she would frequently upload cover versions of her favorite songs. She was soon approached to lend her vocals on Chance The Rapper’s track “All We Got” from his Grammy Winning album ‘Coloring Book’. This was only the beginning for Mishra: it was not long before she made her Bollywood debut, shooting to unprecedented levels of fame with the reprise version of ‘Tarefaan’ from the movie Veere Di Wedding.
Following her breakthrough success in the Indian music scene, Lisa moved to India and continued to impress with a broad repertoire that ranged from major Bollywood tracks to independent music. From collaborating with composer-singer Vishal Mishra for her first single, “Sajna Ve,” under Universal Music India’s VYRL Originals, to multiple features in film tracks like ‘The Wakhra Song’ from the ‘Judgementall Hai Kya,’ ‘Nadaaniyaan’ from ‘The Sky is Pink,’ ‘Chandigarh Mein’ from ‘Good Newwz,’ ‘Nain Ta Heere’ from JugJugg Jeeyo, and ‘Coka 2.0’ from ‘Liger’, she has done it all.
Lisa has also collaborated with Divine on his track ‘Rider’ and has co-written the track ‘The Power of Dreams’ with Badshah.
Now, with a series of lauded independent singles like ‘Nai Chaida,’ ‘Running Back to You’ and ‘Koi Nahi’ under her belt - and a new era of collaborations and releases being unveiled - Lisa Mishra is on an undeniable upward trajectory that vows to cement her status in the global music scene.
