Lisa Ramey Early Life
Lisa began singing since she was nine. She spent five years fronting Sugarbad, a New York funk-soul group that toured Italy and played at the Lincoln Center and the Rockwood Music Hall. They released a pair of EPs during Lisa’s time with the group , “The First Cut” in 2013 and “Up in the Clouds” in 2015.
However, Lisa said she wanted to be her own artist, so she started writing “sexy feel-good pop songs with a heavy ’90s R&B influence” for her debut solo project. That landed as a five-song EP, “I Am … Lisa Ramey” in October, around the same time her Voice audition aired.

During her season 15 audition, Lisa sang “Beautiful Trauma” by Pink. But she failed to turn a chair. By that time, Adam Levine’s team was already full and so was the comeback stage.
She took that setback in stride, writing on Facebook: “My dreams are coming true! I got to sing for soooo many ppl watchin @nbcthevoice last night!!! So the chairs didn’t turn … it sucks, but i’m extremely happy. I tried my best and had an incredible time performing for @kellyclarkson @iamjhud @adamlevine and @blakeshelton.”
About returning to The Voice, Lisa said; “It was easier in the sense that I had already had the worst outcome so there wasn’t much to fear. At the same time, it was harder because I had to be better than I was before to hopefully turn a chair. Both times I was super freaked out!!”
With a chair turn coming so late, Lisa told Voice Views, “I try VERY HARD not to pay attention to those chairs. I aim to focus on my performance and the energy of the crowd. I love getting caught up in a song. But it took forever for a chair turn. It took so long that I didn’t think I got a turn. I had given up and was accepting my sad fait when BOOM! I see John’s face looking at my face. I was shocked! I’ll never forget that moment.”
She also said that she was happy with the outcome; ” If I had to do it all over again, public humiliation and all, I would to get to Team Legend. He is the perfect coach. He seems to have his foot in just about every aspect of the entertainment world. John has the most incredible energy and vibe. He makes me want to be the greatest singer in the world. He really believes in his team and it feels awesome knowing this. He is immeasurable. I didn’t expect him to glow — hahaha, I swear the man glows. He’s that person you just want to stand close to in hopes to catch some of that good energy. I’m beyond grateful and so HAPPY!!!!”
She has since advanced to top 24 on The Voice.
