Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Lisa Crawley is most at home behind the piano, whether she’s performing in music venues, jazz lounges, hotel lobbies or on national television. Together with her natural ear for music and a refreshingly honest onstage presence, she produces heartfelt, authentic pop songs.
