Lisa Forkish

VOCALIST - COMPOSER - ARRANGER - EDUCATOR

"This is an artist whose work is diverse and genuine" Mercury News

"Lisa's voice is one of a handful over the past couple years that immediately drops into the memorable category. Soulful. Great phrasing and tone that has massive crossover potential." - Critical Jazz

"With an artist as wide-ranging and prolific as Forkish, it can be hard to put into words exactly what her music sounds like, but one thing is for sure, Forkish is intent on delivering a story that blends traditional swing, ballads and classic soul." -  Jazz Times

"Lisa Forkish has one of the most engaging voices I have heard in a long time -- it is romantic, good humored and achingly sad, depending on the song" The Borderland U.K.

"Memorable melodies, emotionally satisfying chord changes -- very sophisticated music." - Ted Myers, A&R at Icon Music
