    Lisa Sheldon’s covers of songs have always shown her gift for discovering something new in the familiar. It was a small step from there to finding her own songwriting voice. She writes about the “wild ride” of life with keen insight and playful humor, serving up truth with a wry wink of the eye.  Please share in her story songs and then, the open mic!
