Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton


Co-star of the Oscar-winning documentary "20 Feet from Stardom," Fischer has been one of the music industryís most in-demand vocalists for three decades and counting. Hers is the unforgettable wail "Rape! Murder! It's just a shot away!" on the Stones' original 1969 recording of "Gimme Shelter," a refrain long ago inscribed in the annals of American music. From singing backup for Tina Turner, Luther Vandross and Chaka Khan, to releasing a Grammy-winning solo album, to performing regularly with The Rolling Stones since the early 90s, Fischer uses her dazzling range to convey infinite emotion. She has found ideal co-conspirators in Grand Baton. Their fusion of African, Middle Eastern and Caribbean rhythms, psychedelic soul and progressive rock unleashes Fischerís flexibility and freedom of expression.
