Lisa Forkish


Soulful, dynamic lady a cappella.

From 2012-2015, The Riveters was one of the most exciting vocal groups to hit the a cappella scene. Based out of Oakland, CA, The Riveters had their live debut at the first annual SheSings Women's A Cappella Festival in 2013 and were very well received. In September 2013, The Riveters were nominated for an A Cappella Community Award in the category of "Favorite Newcomer Group" and one of their singers/arrangers, Lisa Forkish, was nominated for "Favorite Arranger." In addition to receiving praise from the a cappella community, U.K. soul artist Laura Mvula shared The Riveters' cover of her song "She" and exclaimed, "Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh wow!" The Riveters CD "She Don't Stop" was released in December 2014 and is available for digital download on iTunes and on Loudr.

Coming from various high school, collegiate and pro groups including 'Til Dawn, Vocal Rush Divisi, Noteworthy, Ro Sham Bo and The Backbeats, this fierce fivesome is armed and ready to bring their fresh, soulful sound into the world. Collectively, members of The Riveters have won a CARA Award for "Best Soloist," lead groups to win the ICCA/ICHSA Finals, competed on The Sing-Off, recorded vocals for Karaoke Revolution and Guitar Hero, and co-founded the Women's A Cappella Association. Outside of The Riveters and a cappella, these five vocalists perform in the realms of jazz, soul, progressive rock, folk and R&B, but describe their "Riveters" sound as soulful and dynamic.
