Lisa Banks

Lisa Banks is an extraordinary talent – a captivating singer and songwriter, melodeon and flute player.

Originally from Cannock Chase in the West Midlands, Lisa has been a regular performer on the folk circuit as a highly sought after musician and singer in various line-ups and collaborations, as well as performing solo.

Lisa has always written and following a chance meeting with Annson Records producer Dawson Smith, she was offered the chance to record her songs and work with some top musicians. The resulting album, ‘From Flora With Love’, was a revelation. It perfectly captures her highly individual style that comes from many of her songs being written on melodeon, giving them a distinctive air. It is however her wonderful singing voice that always shines through, being so rich and fresh that it is at times mesmerising. All the songs have a lyrical depth and strong melodies that sometimes mask some dark goings-on. Lisa is also a superb flute player, which is put to good use on some well chosen traditional tunes that also grace this all round wonderful album.
