Lisa’s commercially released albums and singles have received critical acclaim and ‘Round Magazine says of her latest album I’ll Waltz Before I Go, "Nearly every track is a standout…This is a stunner of an album.” John Sobel of Blog Critics says “Lisa Brigantino is what you’d call a complete musician—a superb multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and not least, rocker. Brigantino brings to her songwriting that real sense of melody that so many putative writers lack.”
Lisa was an original member of Lez Zeppelin, the world’s first all girl Led Zeppelin tribute band and toured internationally with the band playing bass, bass pedals, mandolin and keyboards and doing backing vocals at A list venues and festivals around the world including Bonnaroo (US), Rock am Ring/Rock am Park (Germany), Download (UK).
