Her debut solo CD Obstacles followed in July 2010. The album revolves around the concept of challenges that we face in our journey through life, ranging from everyday highs and lows to personal relationships, to common fears like death and abandonment. Featuring guest appearances by Mick Moss and Lisa's younger sister Aoife, Obstacles highlights Lisa's affecting vocal work and subtly demonstrates her prog and jazz influences on its 11 well-crafted tracks. Lisa has tirelessly criss-crossed Europe on several tours, appearing at Castlefest, Wave Gotik Treffen, and as a featured opening act for the inaugural Marillion Weekend in May, 2011.
Her second album, Paramour, is scheduled for an autumn 2012 release. What people have said about Lisa's music and the Obstacles album: "Lisa has a voice that, for me, borders between Fiona Apple and Sarah McLaughlan...Deep, throaty vocals that twist and flip to delicacy when you're least expecting it. Simultaneously beautiful and haunting." Holly Pereira - The Sessions, 103.2 Dublin City FM "Lisa Cuthbert is a singer-pianist who writes intelligent songs that are melodically suited to her expressive voice. 'Burden' has tasty harmonies, with Cuthbert's voice echoing the quality of June Tabor and Maddy Prior" Jackie Hayden - Hot Press Magazine "When you put honesty and creativity together, it can only be beautiful."
