Lisa Cowell as A Psalmist, Teacher, Recording Artist, Follower of Christ, and Unashamed.
Lisa Cowell is a Christian singer, songwriter, poet, and gospel rapper. Being multi-racial and growing up in the inner city caused her to acquire a multi-cultural taste for music. Growing up, she was exposed to the sounds of the Delphonics, Heatwave, Earth Wind and Fire, Rick James and the similar sounds of the ’70s and ’80s through her parents. As a teenager, she was heavily influenced by artists like Run DMC, Slick Rick, and Salt N Pepa. So much so, she began to write my own raps in the eighth grade.
At 16, she discovered her singing and songwriting ability through an aspiring musician whom she met in her neighborhood. She learned how to play the piano through a friend whose dad made her take lessons. She would take the lessons and teach Lisa what she learned.
And then, at the age of 24, she met God. Her whole life was changed- including her music. It was as if God took over and every musical skill Lisa had became dedicated to God. A lot has happened in the last 20 years. She was a pastor’s wife and a praise and worship leader. She obtained two degrees: a BS in Communication from the University of Hartford, and a BA in Psychology from New England College in New Hampshire. In 2002, Lisa formed a group called Born Again, which was made up of her and another young Lady named Courtney Rohan. Their sound was sweet melodic harmonies to gospel lyrics. We put out one self- titled album comprised of 10 tracks. Lisa wrote and co-produced every song. Due to the needs of a fast-growing congregation, and Courtney moving away, the album was never released.
Lisa is still singing and writing. In 2018, She released an EP entitled: While I’m Waiting. It is available on her website, iTunes, and other music outlets. She has an impressive sized catalog of music that is anointed with crossover ability. Lisa sound is an eclectic hodgepodge of harmonies, melodies, baselines, catchy hooks, and spiritual lyrics. As a whole, it is simply the result of her journey in this life so far.
She loves the Lord and His Gospel (The Good News) and it is her hope to reach ALL of mankind through music, both the saved and the unsaved, the churched and the “unchurched,” so that the great commission (as recorded in Matthew 28:16-20) can be fulfilled.
Lisa is married and currently live in Bloomfield, Connecticut.
