Lisa Barrett

 Hi, I'm Lisa Barrett, and I am a Singer/Songwriter from Western New York. I began songwriting about 2 years ago because our family suffered a traumatic loss. My almost 2 yr old nephew, Austin, lost his battle with cancer. If you've never experienced it, there is no greater pain than the loss of a child. I was looking at his picture one day, and I said out loud, “I can almost feel your touch when you look at me. “ It was that moment that I began writing WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME.
