Lisa Engelken Quartet
Jazz, Brazilian & Beyond
“She is an utter original. Blessed with superlative power, control and range. Engelken can, as mood requires, be as soft as dew or as intense as a sleet storm; her interpretive instincts are astounding.”
- Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
LISA ENGELKEN is a vervy and fearless vocalist, composer and arranger with a daunting stage presence. Classically and theatrically trained, this Kansas-born straight shooter wields an acrobatic three-octave range that alternately locomotes and floats through tunes. Lisa electrifies audiences with an intensity that has garnered her comparisons to Evel Kneivel, Janis Joplin & even a roaring Harley Davidson.
