Lisa O’Neill – Nice, Nearly Perfect

Lisa O’Neill’s music is an eclectic blend of dreamy folk, subdued country and silky smooth vocals resulting in a style that is distinctly her own. With influences ranging from Hope Sandoval, Aimee Mann, Cowboy Junkies and Cat Power, Lisa arranges melodic and nostalgic songs that explore the complexities of life and relationships. In short, it’s music to think and relax to.

From her childhood spent stumbling through rural bliss around a small town in Northern Ireland to her family’s move to Vancouver Island where she spent a knockabout adolescence, Lisa O’ Neill stumbled into the world of music at age 17 after learning three chords on a hand-me-down guitar.

Since moving to Vancouver in 2000, Lisa has spent the last 9 years honing her talents through open-mics, collaborating with musicians from Vancouver and abroad and promoting other artists by hosting singer-songwriter events. With an inner propensity towards perfectionism, the road has sometimes been rocky with several detours along the way but her innate drive towards music has always brought her back on track. From:
