Lisa Mathews

  • About the Artist:

    Lisa Mathews’ music career started in front of a big mirror in the basement of her house in Queens, New York. She learned all the songs in The Sound of Music, danced and lip-synced to Prince’s “Little Red Corvette,” played Fleetwood Mac on her Fender Rhodes. A native New Yorker, she headed down to Baltimore in 1987 to sing in an alt-rock band called Beyond Words. That band morphed into Love Riot in 1994, and the band release three amazing alt-Americana albums and appeared as themselves on the NBC-TV hit Homicide - Life On the Streets. In 2000, Lisa became a mom and shifted focus to babies and younger audiences with Milkshake. Milkshake has been featured on PBS KIDS, Nick Jr., and Discovery Kids and recorded five award-winning albums for kids, including 2010's Grammy-nominated Great Day CD. Nowadays, Lisa keeps busy doing voiceovers, hosting Young At Heart on 89.7 WTMD, playing with Milkshake and working as a Wolf Trap-trained teaching artist in Maryland, Virginia and DC schools.
