Lisa moved to Austin, Texas in August, 2005. She grew up in L.A., the daughter of Grammy winning bass player/arranger, Buddy Clark (of Supersax) and Carol Clark, who delightfully brainwashed Lisa with the Great American Songbook .
She was in a jazz vocal trio for many years which allowed her the privilege of traveling around the world and performing with The Duke Ellington Orchestra, Tex Beneke, and The Mambo Kings, to name a few. Lisa was hired by Bob Dorough to perform on the most recent School House Rock DVD for ABC/Disney, The Electoral College. She’s done theater, released two CDs...Blue Carousel and It’s A Good Day, has her own band, Lisa Clark’s Swingin’ Caravan; she also performs with the big bands The Austin Jazz Band, NAJO, and The Republic of Texas Big Band.
Lisa is the music director/soloist at The Austin Center for Spiritual Living and can be seen around town accompanying her vocals on piano publicly and in many senior living, skilled nursing, and memory care communities. Lisa writes a variety of styles of music…jazz, pop, inspirational, and children’s music.
She books herself directly in many of the memory care communities but some of these bookings are through the charitable organization,
Symphony of Soul. Lisa also does last wishes concerts for hospice patients through another charitable organization, Swan Songs and is so honored and proud to be affiliated with these two incredible non-profit organizations.
Due to the current Shelter in Place response to COVID19, public performances are not currently scheduled until further notice. Lisa is available for tele- and pre-recorded performances.
