Lisa Ramey ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT
NYC-based Lisa Ramey is a multitalented singer-songwriter & recording artist whose voice defies categorization. She exudes gritty soul and passion, a funk-meets-r&b vibe that emphatically captures her St. Louis roots.
Growing up in St. Louis, and performing since the age of nine, Ramey performed 11 consecutive seasons at The Muny, America's oldest and largest outdoor theater. Since moving to New York City, Ramey fronted a wildly popular funk-soul band (SugarBad), has graced Broadway stages, toured the world with Cirque du Soleil as the Soul Singer in KOOZA, and had her television debut singing backup on HBO's original series, VINYL.
Ramey was invited to audition for Season 16 of NBC's The Voice. On its season premiere, Lisa joined EGOT and multi-platinum recording artist John Legend's team and advanced to the Playoff Rounds (Top 24, Legend's top 6) of the show. Her rendition of "The Weight" by The Band debuted at #64 on Apple Music's R&B Charts where she trended to a top 25 song within the first 24 hours of its release. Due to her popularity on the show, she took the stage on the finale to sing in an all-female "super group" of fan favorites from Season 16. In July of 2019, NBC's Songland requested Ramey cover "Hurt Me", originally performed by Meghan Trainor.
In July, 2019, Lisa was named one of Soho House New York's featured recording artists and was given the opportunity to perform for members and guests as a part of their monthly "House Session" program, to a packed house in the House's famed "Vinyl Room". In August she played the DO|AC's Atlantic City Boardwalk Summer Series and travelled to Canada as the solo act of a charity concert. After a busy September of private shows and fashion week events, she will sing at the iconic Joe's Pub at The Public Theater in October.
In addition to her regular gigs, Lisa hosts NBC's The Voice monthly NYC Open Mic at Rockwood Music Hall.
She is currently working on a full album to accompany her EP, "I Am... Lisa Ramey" available on all platforms.
