Lise – Music Performance
Lise’s spontaneous writing style reflects her day to day life thoughts, interactions, experiences and imaginations, while also laying out all of her emotions and feelings for all to see. Her vision is to musically capture pieces of a picture in hopes that when you eventually put everything together you’ll get a glimpse of what’s actually going on inside her head, and maybe see what makes Lise… Lise.
“So at the end of the day I make music to figure out more about myself and to figure out… who am I?”
Erin Pettifor (she/her) – Stigma, Pistol & Style Clown Show
