About Lisa O'Neill

Vancouver, Canada

Lisa O’Neill’s music is an eclectic blend of dreamy folk, subdued country and silky smooth vocals resulting in a style that is distinctly her own. With influences ranging from Hope Sandoval, Aimee Mann, Cowboy Junkies and Cat Power, Lisa arranges melodic and nostalgic songs that explore the complexities of life and relationships. In short, it’s music to think and relax to. From her childhood spent stumbling through rural bliss around a small town in Northern Ireland to her family’s move to Vancouver Island where she spent a knockabout adolescence, Lisa O’ Neill stumbled into the world of music at age 17 after learning three chords on a hand-me-down guitar. Since moving to Vancouver in 2000, Lisa has spent the last 9 years honing her talents through open-mics, collaborating with musicians from Vancouver and abroad and promoting other artists by hosting singer-songwriter events. With an inner propensity towards perfectionism, the road has sometimes been rocky with several detours along the way but her innate drive towards music has always brought her back on track. Getting back on track is exactly what Lisa did in late 2007. She paired up with guitar player and previous band-mate Jesse Waldman and met drummer Nick Stecz at their mutual place of work. In Waldman’s East Vancouver studio Red Light Sound the trio worked on what would become “Partner”, a collection of ten songs illuminated through Waldman’s engineering and production. The album also includes some of Vancouver’s finest musicians: Jen Lewin, Kim Koch, Tim Tweedale and Toronto’s Michael Liston. Central to the album’s sound is a passion for infusing an idyllic world of serenity with the somber tones of reality. The result is a sophisticated mix balancing the hypnotic with the sensual, distilled into a tonic for whatever ails you.
