Lisa Gallant Seal, a Maine native, first picked up the guitar at the age of eleven. Inheriting a love for lyrical expression and music from both parents she started playing guitar and writing songs at a young age. Growing up in a troubled home, the artist used her ability to write her feelings as a coping tool. "I realized my ability to put words to music when I was around fourteen and it helped me cope, it helped me feel", shares the artist, "I could share what I was going through with songs. It felt safer somehow, than talking face to face. Others would identify and a connection was made."
Living several years battling alcoholism, in 1988 Lisa found sobriety with the help of Alcoholic's Anonymous. Leaving the bars and night club gigs behind her, she began sharing her original songs on street corners and local coffee houses. The artist quickly developed a following, founded a band, (The Brotherhood Dogs) and thus began her singer/songwriter career taking her to the infamous "Bitter End" in NYC and other original clubs, attracting some music industry interest (1994 - 2000).
After accepting Jesus Christ it didn't take long for her to feel the calling out of the secular music scene and into the Contemporary Christian Music genre. "I have never felt so right in music like I do when I am singing the songs about my relationship with Jesus", says the artist, "and there is the extra blessing of being able to give the back story on these songs ... every song has an intimate story".
As a Christian artist Gallant Seal pays it forward, the things the Lord has done for her she strives to give back with a childlike excitement. Lisa continues, "I can tell about my relationship with Jesus through songs and reveal His unfailing love and the power to transform our lives; to me, there is nothing more satisfying than that."
