“Going to a Lisa Henry jazz session is like spending an evening with a good friend. Henry’s stage presence makes you feel that you’ve known her for years. She is completely at home and on stage.”

–Mary Lusk
The Manhattan Mercury

“Lisa Henry is held in high regard as a performer, music educator and jazz clinician. Her professional acumen is an asset to any music festival or music education setting.”

–Scott Prebys, Chairman
Department of Music, University of Mary

“She is beaming, radiant, and she has the presence of all great jazz singers. Her voice is warm and deep, her presence undeniable.”

Express de Madagascar

“What strikes you immediately is Henry’s sound: solid but sly, clear but oh-so expressive. There’s always a smile lurking at the edges of her voice.”

Chris Shull
Midwest Jazz

“Lisa Henry has what it takes to get the attention of an audience. Lisa’s rich voice and cool phraseology will soak into your soul.”
