How Lisa Lockland-Bell found her voice
Once warned that she wouldn’t make it to her 50th birthday, world-class vocalist and coach Lisa Lockland-Bell is looking forward to reaching the milestone age this year.
A two-time cancer survivor, the disease was Lisa’s wake-up call as a mother of two.
Lisa is now thriving as the founder of Logan Performance Studios in Loganholme, where she runs elite vocal training, leadership, and personal development programs.
“Logan is an extraordinary melting pot of culture, and I couldn’t believe how much talent there was in this area.”— Lisa Lockland-Bell
Her successful business is the integration of two worlds: the physical and internal voice.
‘I studied the physical voice for more than 40 years but what kept me going when I had cancer was my internal guidance system,’ Lisa says.
‘I realised that people have to know who they are and what their legacy will be – that’s what it means to really own your voice and be empowered.
‘Now I finally feel completely aligned with my purpose.’
Sheldon Riley, who will represent Australia at this year’s Eurovision, is her most recent success story.
‘I could sense Sheldon was extraordinary as soon as I met him, but we continued to work on his energy and stage presence,’ she says.
‘My goal is to reflect the potential that lies within everyone.’
Lisa was particularly intrigued by the potential she found in the City of Logan.
‘Logan is an extraordinary melting pot of culture, and I couldn’t believe how much talent there was in this area,’ she says.
‘I wanted to bring my studio into this area for Logan kids and it found us at the right place and right time.’
