“Lisa Brigantino is what you’d call a complete musician-a superb multi-instumentalist, singer/songwriter, and not least, rocker. Brigantino brings to her songwriting that real sense of melody that so many putative writers lack…”
– Jon Sobel, Blog Critics
Award-winning singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Lisa Brigantino is an engaging performer whose eclectic approach to songwriting spans groove, topic and genre - from Folk and Rock to Blues, Americana, Old-Time, Country and more.
Lisa also has a vast repertoire of cover songs spanning many decades and genres. She is at home in front of audiences of any size - from a handful of folks at an intimate house concert or party to thousands of people on a festival stage.
Lisa can perform as a soloist but can also be joined by her sister Lori Brigantino for musical performances. Their set up is easy with 2 vocals and various acoustic instruments - guitar, ukulele, banjo, accordion, percussion.
Lisa's latest album, I’ll Waltz Before I Go, was co-produced and arranged by Brigantino and husband Thomas Millioto, and was recorded and mixed by Millioto. With a majority of the instruments played by Brigantino, the arrangements show her versatility as an artist; ranging from mellow vocals and finger picked acoustic guitar, to full band arrangements with Brigantino deftly handling guitars, bass, keyboards, accordion, mandolin, and more. ‘Round Magazine says “It’s hard to find an album with more variety than I’ll Waltz Before I Go…Brigantino’s voice itself is something truly special. It combines the brightness and clarity of a precocious twenty-something, with all the range and control of a woman with decades of practice under her belt….Nearly every track is a standout…This is a stunner of an album.”
Lisa performs regularly at a variety of venues and has appeared at a number of well-known music festivals including The Florida Music Festival, Maplewoodstock, The Rockland-Bergen Music Festival, The Pleasantville Music Festival, The Black Potatoe Festival.
