When Lisa Haley’s soaring, compelling “cornbread” voice holds court in the "One World Swamp", worlds collide! A Blue Fiddle Records recording artist with six albums to her credit, including GRAMMY-Nominated "King Cake," Lisa’s compelling songs, boundless energy and blue violin “Louie” have made this fourth-generation "Fiddlist" an ambassador for her modern-day style of “Americana Cajun/Zydeco.”

Bringing progressive Louisiana music to a worldwide audience reaches far beyond a career playing solely traditional genre. The protégé of legendary Cajun accordionist Joe Simien of Lawtelle, Louisiana, Lisa has recorded and/or toured with Sir George Martin (Beatles producer), multi-Grammy winner/producer KebMo', Grammy-winning artists Queen Ida, Al Rapone, Rockin' Sydney ("Don't Mess with My Toot-toot",) Randy Newman, Lyle Lovett, Taj Mahal, John Hiatt, Brian Setzer, Dave Koz, and a host of others.

Her All-Star band “the Zydekats” includes: Skip Edwards, accordion/keyboards (Dwight Yoakam/Johnny Rivers); Chuck Alvarez, guitar (Tim Weisberg); Andy Anders, bass (Cajun accordionist Joe Simien); and New Orleans native Maria Martinez, drums (Rita Coolidge/Johnny Paycheck/Barry White.)

Born to Southern parents displaced after WWII, Lisa moved to California as a child for her mother’s health, A descendant of Francis Scott Key and F. Scott Fitzgerald, she was music director for Emmy-winning "Late Mr. Pete Show," and has also acted in "The Beverly Hillbillies Movie" (Jim Varney); "Man in the Moon" (Jim Carey); "Red Dragon" (Sir Anthony Hopkins); on NBC-TV show "Las Vegas" performing her Zydeco and playing with the legendary Little Richard, and others.

Her violin is prominent in "The Waterboy" (Adam Sandler), "The Grave" (Anthony Michael Hall), and HBO's "Mr. Atlas" (features her critically acclaimed song "Always Be Your Guide", a contender for the ending song in "Lord of the Rings III".) Her songs "Louisiana" and “Reggie Alligator” were recently featured on KNBC-TV and BBC-1. She has performed for Hollywood Bowl Summersounds.

Lisa stands out as the most energetic violinist/vocalist in America today. Igniting the spirits of Cajun/Zydeco, Americana, Christian, Jazz, Rock, and Folk fans, she performs worldwide with her All-Star band.
