Lisbee Stainton

Lisbee Stainton

At the age of eighteen Lisbee was the first unsigned artist to play London's O2 Arena. Soon after, 6Music’s Tom Robinson discovered her song Red, and his support subsequently led to a further four of her tracks being play listed by BBC Radio 2.

Since then she has toured the UK and Europe, both as a headline act and a support, with artists such as Joan Armatrading, Seth Lakeman, Paul Carrack, Gretchen Peters, Fisherman’s Friends and Paul Brady.

After supporting Seth Lakeman around Germany he asked Lisbee to join his band, and she subsequently played banjo, harmonium and backing vocals in his band for four years.

As a songwriter, Lisbee has co-written with songwriters in the UK such as Ivor Novello nominee Charlie Dore, Eleanor McEvoy, Tom Robinson and Ian Brown, as well as Nashville songwriters, such as Blue Miller, Lamont ‘Logic’ Coleman and BMG writer Tebey Ottoh.
