Lisa Rabél began playing the guitar when she was 9 years old. Later she successfully studied classical guitar at the Vienna Konservatorium.

Due to her keen interest in Spanish music Lisa attended flamenco classes in Spain with musicians such as Paco Peña and Pedro Soler.

Lisa has also spent a year in Mexico to study singing and to involve herself more intensively with Latin American music. After her return to Austria she had the opportunity to hold solo concerts as well as making performances on radio and television. Inspired by her time in Mexiko Lisa began to compose her own work.

She continued to study singing with Susanne Amberg Schneeweis who not only assisted her in perfecting her breathing technique but also helped her to develop a clear, strong, expressive singing voice.

Since 2000 Lisa has extended her repertoire with swing and jazz songs.
