G5CU is pleased to announce that our featured artist for the return of the G5CU Spotlite Series is celebrated Toronto singer/songwriter Lisa Banton
Born and raised in Toronto, Lisa Banton is an artist from a city that boasts some of the world’s greatest talents. Inspired by her father, Caribbean Gospel singer George Banton, Lisa grew up listening to R&B greats such as Toni Braxton, Lauryn Hill, Kelly Price, Faith Evans and Mary J Blige. Currently, she draws inspiration from Fantasia, Ledisi and Jazmine Sullivan, all the while remaining focused on developing her craft as a songwriter making her delivery as a performer believable and authentic.
Lisa may be in the early stages of her career, but having worked with producer Herb Middleton (SWV, Mary J Blige, Faith Evans, Kelly Price) and performing in both Toronto (Gift of Music, opening for Glenn Lewis) and NYC (SOUL FACTORY), she has already received high praises from industry influencers.
