Praise for Virgin Tracks…

  • “Richard is more than a theatrical singer… with a range from shy girl-next-door to lusty, hard-hearted mama.”

    — Bill Kohlhaase, Los Angeles Times
  • “…her inner fire and flawless vocal technique are exceptional, along with her fine understanding of how to make a ballad into a piece of acting. She knows how to slide off a plaintive note with subdued passion and just the right moments to open up and wail.”

    — T.H. McCulloh, Los Angeles Times
  • “Richard is a wonderful new find, possessing a lovely voice…”

    — Rob Stevens, It’s Showtime!
  • “Richard can wring emotion from the most stoic among us.”

    — Kristina Mannion, Backstage West
  • “Lisa Richard pumps in sex appeal and comic flair…”

    — Robert Koehler, Los Angeles Times
  • “Richard is more than a theatrical singer working with a fine sense of pitch and tones that range from shy, girl-next-door to lusty, hard-hearted mama.”

    — Bill Kohlhaase, Los Angeles Times
  • “So in your face, she’s practically in your lap as she rocks the room!”

    — The Village Voice, New York City
  • “Pipes to rival any of the legendary belters of the Great White Way but Richard can also deftly handle a quiet ballad signaling the arrival of a superb new talent. She is a star in hiding, ready to come out of her bursting-at-the-hinges artistic closet at a moment’s notice. Perhaps that moment has come.”

    — Travis Michael Holder, Entertainment Today, Los Angeles
  • “Lisa is a singular and outstanding talent. Her performance is consistently inventive, often hilarious, always joyous, and not to be missed.”

    — Faith Prince, Tony Award winning actress, Guys andDolls
  • “Lisa Richard has a beautiful voice, great taste, and the ability to cut right to the heart of a lyric.”

    — David Zippel, Tony Award winning lyricist, City of Angels
  • “… she belts, soothes, teases, and convinces you she is born to sing.”

    — Melinda Schupmann, Showmag.com
  • “Lisa has a big, brassy voice out of the old belters school of musical theater, and her album is ”What I love to hear is the daring woman — sure and in command — standing out front with the big band boys in back! Or the woman alone, singing soulfully with little accompaniment — totally exposed. That is hot. That is talent. And that is Lisa.” Equally bold and brassy … while Lisa can belt with the best of them, it is on her quiet numbers that she really shines.”

    — Jonathan Frank, Talkin’ Broadway
  • “Lisa Richard has a divine and luxurious voice. She is ruthlessly talented!”

    — Marvin Laird, composer, Ruthless! The Musical
  • “Los Angeles’ singing sensation …”

    — New York Newsday
  • “Richard can wring emotion from the most stoic among us.”

    — Kristina Mannion, Backstage West
  • “Richard is a wonderful new find, possessing a lovely voice …”

    — Rob Stevens, It’s Showtime!
  • “Lisa Richard has a voice as warm as honey, as hot as the tropics, as heartfelt as a first love. She sings pop, jazz, blues, showtunes … you name it, she sings it. A song flows out of her as naturally as breathing falls out of the rest of us. She sings from the inside out (no pun intended), and touches us without our understanding how or why. All we know is, we want to hear more.”

    — Adryan Russ, composer/lyricist, Inside Out
  • “I will tell you now that this gal is awesome!”

    — Stu Hamstra, Cabaret Hotline
