As featured in the Oscar and GRAMMY winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom, Ms. Lisa Fischer stepped out from behind the backing mic to take centre stage. Two GRAMMY wins later, while still extensively touring with The Rolling Stones for nearly 30 years (yes, she passionately belts it out in a legendary duet with Mick Jagger on Gimme Shelter), Fischer and her band Grand Baton have been gaining a reputation internationally for their dynamic live performances.
Their music is an organic gumbo of progressive rock, psychedelic soul, R&B and African, Middle Eastern, Caribbean rhythms and classical influences. In performance, they re-invent songs by Led Zeppelin, Little Willie John, and of course The Rolling Stones as well as originals. After decades of also lending her vocal mastery to collaborations, recordings and tours with Sting, Chris Botti, Tina Turner, Yo Yo Ma, Nine Inch Nails, Luther Vandross and many more, Ms. Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton have emerged as the most inventive and heartfelt interpreter of classic rock songs working today.
