Corporate life as a financial analyst never really worked for Lisa. Writing memorable hooks is what really
suits her spirit. In fact, writing memorable hooks is partly a result of writing songs from elementary school
days, which is exactly what Lisa Cruz did. Then, like now, Lisa had the instinctive desire and ability to express
matters of a young girlís life in the form of music, writing songs and giving meaning to innocent matters. Her
instrument of choice back then, was the drums. She excelled in many forms of this instrument in her early years
as a musician and well into her teens and throughout high school. While her drum set went with her to Eugene,
Oregon where she attended college, it stayed primarily in storage while Lisa participated in college life.
Although she didnít play the drums much, music was still at the center of what Lisa enjoyed and she remained
loyal to the dream of pursuing music. After graduating, moving back to Denver, Colorado and finishing her Masterís
Degree in Finance and Accounting, she enrolled in classical guitar and theory classes and began practicing as much
as her busy schedule working full time as a financial analyst and later a teacher, would allow. The guitar became
her songwriting partner and the two were inseparable. However, her most notable musical attribute is of course her
voice. Thereís sweetness in it thatís hard to find as she expresses tender subtleties of lifeís circumstances in
the lyrics she writes. She has written all of the songs on her CD. Lisa continues to excel in the field she has
longed to find her in, and has realized an early and persistent dream.
