Our featured artiste of the week is Lisa. Lisa spent half of her life living overseas as a diplomat’s daugther. At the age of 12, she was introduced to the world of music and began her first step as a musician. While showing excellent abilities in her studies, Lisa participated in school bands, showing everything she had of her own musical talent. While a high-school student in Poland, Lisa was also awarded the first prize in the International Youth Music Festival held in Switzerland.
Lisa strengthed her stand as a vocalist while singing in a band during her college years at Hong-Ik University. She applied for an internet song festival with a home-recorded demo album she had made in high school and her talent was recognized by local producers, who then aided her into officially debuting into the Korean pop music scene.
Lisa has released three solo albums and also sang duet with other singers like Hwan Hee and Lee Seung Chul. The title song "I am Drawing" of her recently-released 3rd album "Featherlight" became her first top-20 hit, despite Lisa not having come out to perform on music shows.
