Lisa Biales (pronounced Be-Alice) sings from the heart and writes playful music about the simple things in life. She weaves a down home blues vernacular with finger style guitar to create songs that feel like they have been around forever. Her new CD "Just Like Honey" showcases the gift Lisa has for writing a great song, and for making the ones she covers all her own.
