Lisa Thorson Website Header Image


Welcome to the website of Lisa Thorson, a Boston-based jazz vocalist, actress, and music educator. She has performed at jazz clubs, on radio, on stage, in film, and on television for over thirty five years. In addition, she has toured throughout the U.S., Canada, and Italy as a concert artist and jazz vocal clinician and released six jazz recordings as a leader. Legendary jazz vocalist Sheila Jordan calls Lisa “one of the most exciting jazz singers on the scene today”.


“A gifted improviser of the most musical kind. She doesn’t sing songs. She sings music … the best jazz singer I have heard in years.”
- Chuck Graham, Tucson Citizen



On July 29th, The Lisa Thorson Quartet will take the stage at the Boomtown Summer Arts Festival in Cambridge, MA. This FREE show starts at 7:00pm in the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center. For tickets and more information, click here. We hope to see you there!
