Cat Cohen Alumni

Lisa graduated from the University of Virginia and worked for a top financial firm before pursuing a music career.  She worked in New York, London, and LA , but never lost her passion for music.  An epiphany during an emergency plane landing led her to pursue life as a singer-songwriter.  Her musical influences include Sarah MacLachlan, Tori Amos, Alanis Morissette and Natalie Merchant.  Lisa recently graduated from UCLA with a Master’s Degree in Social Work.  She hopes to bring positive change to families and children with her music.  The title of her record Attachment Theory was inspired by her work with women and kids in a domestic violence shelter.  Lisa has performed at LA venues including The Knitting Factory, Cat Club, Catalina Bar and Grill, The Gig, Westwood Brewing Company, Genghis Cohen, House of Blues and the Joint.
