The concert is part of the on-going Split Level Concert Series which highlights critically acclaimed singer-songwriters in a uniquely intimate setting. Luke Elliot will open the show.

As host of Rock Star Kitchen, which airs weekly on The Comcast Network and in syndication throughout the US, Lisa has talked music and sung with Foreigner, Eddie Money, Lita Ford, John Popper, Chubby Checker, Gary US Bonds, Cy Curnin of The Fixx, Night Ranger, and Corey Glover of Living Colour.

Her style has been compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Jason Mraz, but what sets her music apart is an edge reminiscent of classic artists such as Neil Young and Tom Petty.

Folk-rocker Luke Elliot will open the show. Elliot's music has been steadily gaining attention since his debut EP, Death of a Widow, was released by Yerbird Records in 2010. The EP gained him a dedicated fan base that followed him through a circuit of venues across the Northeast. The music, comprised of an eclectic mix of genres and ideas, has gained him critical acclaim as an artist to pay attention to. Luke's latest EP, Provisions, was released in June 2014.

Upcoming Split Level Concerts include Susan Werner on January 9th at UCPAC's Hamilton Stage, Milton on January 24th at The Loft at UCPAC, Natalia Zukerman on February 7th at The Loft at UCPAC, and Sloan Wainwright on February 21st at The Loft at UCPAC.
