About

Attracted to jazz since birth, Keating has always resonated with music forged by earlier generations. Studying piano and voice privately with Art Ched, Chip Hand, Howlett Smitty Smith, Deborah Schulman and taking Master Classes with vocal luminaries, Seth Riggs and Mark Goodman, Keating has explored and refined her technique and phrasing on a quest to serve the music with emotion and the power of her own heart. 

After undergraduate work in theatre at UCLA, Keating began producing her own shows as well as working for the likes of Leiber and Stoller (Smokey Joe's CafĂ©, Is That All There Is, Bernie's Tune), Roseanne (The Roseanne Show) and director, Mel Shapiro. Collecting rave reviews and critic’s awards along the way, Keating has toured the Western United States, Mexico, played in NYC, Las Vegas and Paris as well as performing an extended run in Japan. Married to award-winning fine artist, Warren Keating, the couple now make their home in Santa Fe, New Mexico with their daughter, Lisette. 

A California native, Lisa founded EncinoMom.com in 2010. Located in the San Fernando Valley, Encino is a suburb of Los Angeles. The Keatings called the Valley home for more than 20 years. At EncinoMom.com, Lisa regularly hosts episodes of California Living, bringing the enjoyment of family life, travel and the California Lifestyle to the world.

A Studio Is A Studio

A snap during set up for rehearsal in my husband's art studio.



Here's a little live video from our show with Justin Bransford on bass and me and Jesse Vernier from Cords and Strings. This was our first outing on this material. Here I am dipping my toe in the waters of singing in Portuguese. I'm looking forward to exploring more lyrics in this poetic, liquid language of love. Enjoy, Lisa

Brazilian Exports

Here's a little sample from a LIVE set of Brazilian tunes we played at The Performance Space last week. I am loving working on this repetoire, so tender, sweet and sad with beautiful melodies and gentle rhythms. The sounds coming from Jesse Vernier's guitar are an inspiration. We've got some Portuguese tunes in the pipeline, too. 

Subtle, rich and romantic this is my first guitar/vocal duo endeavor. I hope you like this material on us. Jesse and I are looking to Samba our way into Summer offering private house concerts, gallery events and dinner music programs from LA to Santa Fe.
