Prolific New Zealand born entertainer and musician Lisa Jayne has been charming audiences across national and international stages performing her extensive repertoire of songs.
Lisa Jayne has worked as a professional singer and pianist with residencies in Japan, Denmark, America, the UK, New Zealand and her current home base- Melbourne, Australia. She’s also a very talented multi instrumentalist and has played in bands for Tim Finn, Greg Johnson, Pete Murray, Julia Deans and was the official accompanist for X Factor.
Lisa has the unique ability to adapt to any occasion, whether it’s background piano/vocals, jazz standards, songs from the sixties to the pop hits today – there’s nothing Lisa Jayne can’t play.
Although very capable of ambient background music and is an award winning composer, her ‘party trick’ is taking requests and being able to play literally any song she’s heard before – and even offers a ‘piano karaoke’ option where YOU sing.
Creatively insatiable, the last few years has seen Lisa finding time in between writing and composing her own music, arranging and performing her songs for Symphony Orchestras and opening for the likes of John Mayer, Jools Holland, Simply Red, Suzanne Vega and Paul Weller with her own material (under ‘Lisa Crawley’), to co-write a cabaret show with Bullet Heart Club, titled ‘Elizabeth’, and is back after recording in Canada and the USA (with Grammy nominated producer Rob Kleiner) to her home town of Auckland to star in the Tony Award winning musical ‘Once’.
Whether it’s easy listening background music to set the scene, or upbeat piano based sing alongs, Lisa Jayne is guaranteed to be the perfect entertainment for any occasion.
