Lisa Tomlins


Over the last three and a half decades, Lisa Tomlins (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Toa) has established herself as one of the most versatile vocalists in the local music scene.

In that time, the Upper Hutt-based stage singer, studio recording artist, mentor, and vocal coach has fronted the Wellington disco-house-dub trio Ebb and sung with a who’s who of Aotearoa New Zealand bands, including Fat Freddy’s Drop, TrinityRoots, Little Bushman, The Recloose Live Band, Lord Echo, and L.A.B. “When you hire me, what you get is reliability,” she says. It’s a humble statement from an enduring talent with far, far more to offer to the world.
