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 May 2019, Lisa was asked by NBC to be the host of The Voice's monthly NYC Open Mic at Rockwood Music Hall. Since her time on the series, Lisa was named one of Soho House New York's featured recording artists, playing a sold out crowd in the famed Vinyl Room; she headlined the DO|AC's Atlantic City Boardwalk Summer Series, sold out an 1000+ capacity amphitheater for a Canadian charity concert, was a guest to some of NYFW's S/S '19 high profile events, sang at the iconic Joe's Pub at The Public Theater, in December, shared a stage with Ms. Lauryn Hill in The Mothers Ball, at NYC's The Javits Center sponsored by iHeartRadio, and rang in 2020 headlining for The McKittrick Hotel.
Her debut album SURRENDER will release March 27th, 2020 to accompany her EP "I Am... Lisa Ramey", currently available on all platforms. Her full album and upcoming single can be previewed, below.
