Offering a versatile repertoire in English, Portuguese and Spanish; jazz vocalist Lisa Andrea Torres a San Francisco Bay Area native, has been performing in the Bay Area, Miami, Brazil, Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, the Philippines, and Mexico for the past 25 years, five of which were spent in Rio and São Paulo, Brazil. Expressing warmth and versatility, Lisa’s vocal style and musical arrangements combine elements of contemporary jazz, Latin jazz, and Brazilian bossa nova and samba. During and while living/performing in Brazil and Miami for over thirteen years, she began singing on the Asia circuit doing 4 month-contracts in nightclubs and hotels.
Since 2010, Lisa has been appearing regularly at local venues, blending the richness and diversity of North and South American music with many of the top Bay Area straight-ahead jazz, Latin Jazz and Brazilian Jazz musicians.
Innovative and rhythmic, Lisa’s debut CD The Seventh Sense produced and recorded in Miami, offers a fresh take on classics like Burt Bacharach’s “The Look of Love”, Brazilian composer Jorge Benjor’s “Mas Que Nada”, and Milton Nascimento’s “Nada Será Como Antes”. These standards along with her original compositions, create a ‘chill-out’ blend of rhythm, lyric, and style.
