LISSA LAURIA BIO

Unique, stunning and innovative - those are just a few words that describes "Lissa" - one of the hottest young female singer/rapper/songwriters in Los Angeles today. Known in music circles on both coasts as "Miss Liss", she has performed on some impressive venue stages.

Lissa Lauria is New York born and raised and spends nearly every waking moment listening to, composing and recording music. Growing up only minutes from Manhattan which is such a musical melting pot, Lissa has come to love all kinds of music whether it's Pop, Hip Hop, Rock, Reggae, African, Jazz or Opera. But as a young girl she never believed that she could become a part of this industry she loved so much and express herself vocally even though that was the dream of her heart.

Lissa is no stranger to the stage. From the tiny age of 3 years old, she was part of NYC theatrical productions: Annie, Diary of Anne Frank and many other plays included Lissa as part of their cast. Soon she transitioned into independent films and commercials as well as spending every waking moment in dancing, acting and vocal classes.

By the time Lissa was 15, she and her family knew that the west coast was calling her. Almost overnight, they left their lives that they'd known and ventured to the west coast. And from the moment she arrived, she worked with many music producers in pursuit of the sound that was ultimately hers.

At the young age of 17, Lissa opened for the Jonas Brothers along with the Stained Pink Band in Atlanta, Georgia. Performing 4 of her original songs, Lissa got the bug to an even greater degree and knew from that moment, she was destined for the stage and show business would be her life. Her mantra echos some of what 50 Cent says, "I'll make it or die trying."

Quickly, booking agents from NY to L.A. started banging on Lissa's door after seeing her undeniable talent and she began performing in some infamous venues such as: The Knitting Factory, Universal Citywalk, Stardust and The Bitter End NYC amongst others. She also stretched her wings in the acting arena and has booked commercials, TV pilots and films, one of which is currently playing on Starz and Encore, "All Ages Night."

Lissa's most recent accomplishment is her newest single, "Famous" which she penned with Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum songwriting and producing team, The Jackie Boyz. The song has seen remarkable success being picked up by independent radio stations across the country who answered requests for it to be played. Most recently, the song was added to a feature film which will have its international distribution summer of 2011.

With a powerful work ethic and a strong, persistent drive, Lissa is determined to make her mark in the entertainment industry.
