Showcasing how disco, soul and Motown hits are meant to sound, Byron Bay songstress Lisa Hunt is returning to Far North Queensland this March to help celebrate 20 years of at The Reef Hotel Casino. The versatile performer, whose party interpreations of iconic classics always bring audiences to their feet, has consistently packed the house since she started appearing on the Vertigo stage almost a decade ago. There is no doubt that her 2016 return promises to be no different!

With a repetoire that includes hits from the lines of Aretha Franklin, The Jacksons, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, as well as a swag of Motwon greats, so its not suprising that the upcoming nights in Cairns are highly anticiapted by music fans. Lisa’s vibrancy as an artist has seen her trek the globe and perform at some of the most coveted venues and festivals in Australia. Starting the early days of her career in the great African American gospel church tradition in New York, Lisa discovered the power of soulful singing and has gone on to share the stage with some of the world’s greats.

She has an enviable list of admirers, from Eric Clapton, Dionne Warwick, Brian May, Randy Crawford, to Andrea Bocelli – all have been impressed with Lisa’s versatility and immense vocal ability. She’s also performed and toured with the likes of Ronan Keating, Macy Gray, Mousse T, Delores O’Riordan (Cranberries) and Tina Arena.

In Australia, she’s shared the studio with Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Darren Percival, Jon Stevens and Midnight Oil. Her other international recording credits include sessions with famed producers Jellybean Benitez (Madonna), Toni C (Whitney), Frank Farion (LaBouche) and The Berman Brothers (Amber, Ultra Nate) to name a few. Her vocals can also be heard on several top 10 dance tracks around Europe including being ‘the voice’ of Lovestation (UK), Club X (Germany) and D1 (USA).
Internationally, Lisa has songs on numerous compilation albums. Her debut release, A Little Piece of Magic, was released through record giant Universal/Polydor.

She was also on the chart topping Lovestation’s Soulstation CD. Embracing both sides of the spectrum, Lisa also independently released Can You Feel It on an indie label. She has also been credited for her work with American soundtrack compositions for shows such as HBO’s Subway Stories and Goodnight Moon, to name a few. She’s also appeared as an actress on several off-Broadway musicals such as Dreamgirls and Ballad for Bimshire. In Australia, she’s also put together her own production of The Roots Of My Soul.

While she now calls Australia home, Lisa Hunt spends her year touring the globe. Her return to The Reef Hotel Casino always holds a special place in this incredible performer’s heart and celebrating with the venue will be special indeed. Don’t miss your chance to see this enigmatic performer live in concert and capture a little bit of soul! These two nights promise to be a party not to forget.
