Lisa Dotolo was born and raised in Westerly, Rhode Island and is a graduate of Providence College. She has since moved to Nashville, TN from Rochester, N.Y. to pursue her singing career and gift of music. Lisa is working to have an international music career and to share her talent with the world.
Lisa started her singing career at the age of 3 in the church with her mother Sandra, cantering the Catholic mass as well as singing in the local church folk group. Lisa also started to write songs as a young girl and continues to write many different styles of music.
As a young girl, she acted in several community theatre productions in upstate New York as well as school musicals and dramas both in high school and college. Her love for the stage and acting is as passionate as her love for live musical performance. She hopes to one day pursue her love for the theatre, on Broadway and produce as well as act in a musical she has already begun to write and record.
Currently, Lisa performs in coffee shops, festivals, nursing homes, Churches and acoustic clubs in Nashville and across the country.
Influenced by Olivia Newton John, Sarah Mclachlin, Jewel, Natalie Merchant, Shania Twain, Eva Cassidy and Madonna, her monthly shows at Cafe Coco`s continue to draw a large crowd while maintaining an intimate setting; a venue Lisa enjoys most.
