Lisa's father Charles Scribe, gave her a gift of the hand drum at a young age. Born and raised in Winnipeg, she is a performer in the Indigenous community and participated in local drumming circles. Her late grandfather Murdo Scribe, who told legends from Northern Manitoba, wanted to leave a legacy that reflects culture, identity and pride among the future generations. She wanted to follow in the steps of storytelling through music.  


The songs are sounds of the hand drum, shaker along with vocals of Indigenous song and melodies. The album Buffalo and Rabbits is a compilation of songs with a story line about a Rabbit named 'Wapos' and a Buffalo named 'Pison'. The music brings to life the animals who are on a journey of experience and growth, seeking the story of the Roundance as it was lost long ago. The album Buffalo and Rabbits earned a 2017 Indigenous Music Award Nomination for Best New Artist and Aboriginal Songwriter of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
