Lisa Carver was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and raised on the hymns of her gospel singing mother, and the traditional country music of her father. Her big brother, David, taught her three chords on the guitar when she was six years old, and sparked an interest in creating and writing her own songs. After moving to a remote wilderness island commune in Southeast Alaska with her family at the age of ten, her writing soul stepped up in the absence of TV and radio. She knew she wanted to move to Nashville, which she considered the songwriting mecca, to learn from her writing heroes and tribe. It was a long and colorful journey leading up to her first publishing deal with Sony/Big Alpha in 2000, and continues to be a road rife with challenges, and rich in rewards and experiences which have far surpassed anything she could have dreamed up on her little Alaskan island.
Besides playing shows and putting out her own artist projects, Carver has had cuts by other artists, ranging from Sugarland, Julie Roberts, Reba, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, and Jill Johnson, to Tanya Tucker. Her single with Sugarland, "Everyday America" was the theme song for Good Morning America as well. Carver has had songs placed in TV shows such as One Life To Live, Grey's Anatomy and Army Wives.
