Lisa Fischer is an American R&B vocalist and songwriter. She rose to fame in 1991 with her debut album So Intense, which produced the Grammy Award winning hit single "How Can I Ease the Pain". Known for her wide, high vocal range, Fischer has been recognized as one of the most successful session vocalists of the era. She has sung back-up for a number of famous artists, including Luther Vandross, and Tina Turner. She has been a touring backup featured singer alongside vocalist Bernard Fowler, touring with The Rolling Stones since 1989, and her popularity with the fans have brought her to routinely duet with Mick Jagger on several songs when performing onstage.
Fischer's career peaked with the 1991 release of "How Can I Ease the Pain" from her album So Intense, which reached number one on the R&B charts and won her a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1992. The album spawned three Top 20 R&B hits and peaked at #5 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #100 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Fischer stated that the reason she discontinued her career as a solo artist afterward was because she enjoyed being a backing singer much more than a solo artist.
