Lisa Forkish (she/they) is a queer singer-songwriter, community-builder, artivist, song-healer, and self-described “Love Warrior,” infusing all she creates with fierce authenticity and heart. Raised on unceded Kalapuya land (Eugene, OR) among majestic Douglas firs and her motherʻs baby grand piano, Lisa finds magic in that which is unseen but deeply heard and felt.
For the past two decades, Lisa has been using song as both an expressive art and a tool for building connection; their music weaves together lush, dissonant vocal harmonies with honest, life-affirming lyrics to create a musical landscape that nourishes the ears and the soul. Lisa has released four albums of original music, and their latest record is a one-human, all-vocal EP titled “Love Warrior,” featuring seven original songs in musical celebration of the human spirit.
For Lisa, teaching and facilitating music spaces is much more than a job: it is a sacred calling. Whether it be at a festival with hundreds of participants, diving deep with 12 singers, or finding tenderness in a 1:1 session, Lisa shows up with warmth, grace and humor. Lisa has been at the musical helm of six different vocal groups over the past 20 years, and is a sought-after ensemble coach and clinician. She is the creator and facilitator of WeSing Circles, an intergenerational community singing into the movement for our collective liberation. From 2011-2020, Lisa was on faculty at Oakland School for the Arts where she founded and directed five-time national champion high school a cappella group, Vocal Rush; known for their uplifting performances and commitment to music for social change, they were named one of the “YBCA 100” alongside artivists Janelle Monae and Tarana Burke.
Lisaʻs ultimate aim in life is to utilize music for personal and collective healing and liberation. Lisa is currently a settler on occupied Kānaka Maoli land along the Hāmākua Coast of Hawaiʻi Island where she lives with her beloved Andrea, three cats, and a fruit orchard.
