We're thrilled to have Lisa Faye on board as Vocal Coach for our FREE Musical Theatre workshop at The Lights on Saturday 17th September.
From her early beginnings performing around the Northern Club Circuit fronting several bands Lisa Faye has packed a lot into her short career so far. Her story sounds all so familiar with that of fellow Yorkshire singer Jane McDonald with whom Lisa Faye teamed up back in 1997 to record an uptempo version of the famous Chess hit, ´I Know Him So Well´ which went on to give Lisa and Jane their first No1 hit in America!
With a wealth of performing experience she began training with local dance and drama groups back home in Rotherham, South Yorkshire before heading for London to attend the famous, “BRIT School” and then onto The Royal Academy of Music, in London, studying Music Theatre with Mary Hammond.
Lisa’s singing has led her to work with a diverse range of artists such as Mike Batt, The Commitments , Tony Hadley and Charlotte Church to name but a few. She has also worked for the world renowned record companies, “Music Factory”, the Jive Bunny Creators, appearing in videos, on “Top of the Pops”, and as a session singer for ‘Going For A Song’.
Back in 2005 she performed in her own creation ‘Dinner With A Diva’ at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival which was based on her experiences as a singer on a cruise-ship.
in 2009 Lisa produced and performed other new shows, ‘Diva’s – The Concert’ and ‘Musical - The Concert’, then in August 2010 she performed her show, ‘Streisand – The Concert’ at Edinburgh Festival Fringe to sell out audiences and returned with a 5* review.
February 2011 and Lisa Faye made her solo debut in London’s West End with her own show, ‘Streisand – The Main Event‘ at Trafalgar Studios, Whitehall, London. The show was on for 3 consecutive Saturdays at the start of this year and has led to the show going on a tour of the UK later this year!
When not performing Lisa Faye manages a very successful and rewarding teaching business sharing her knowledge of voice and piano with budding “stars of tomorrow”.
