"Full of charisma and vitality, its a blazing start for the young singer-song writer" (ADS Records)
Lisa released her debut EP “Free Spirits” in April 2017 to great reviews, much radio play, comparisons to Suzanne Vega and Kirsty MacColl, appearances on STV, the Janice Forsyth Show, BBC at the Fringe and a Celtic FM Showcase alongside Rab Noakes and Findlay Napier. In 2017 Lisa won Renfrewshire Live and Unsigned, a nomination for Radio Wigwam Best Female, was a Salute Music UK finalist and a runner up in the Radio Clyde Jim Diamond Award. Lisa releases new music in 2018. On her 18th birthday in February 2018, she headlined King Tuts for the Salute UK hometown gig.
"If you plot the graph where pop and country meets, you find some brilliant singer songwriters. Think Taylor Swift, think Suzanne Vega, think Sheryl Crow, now think Lisa Kowalski" (Third Class Ticket Radio).
