THERE is no excuse not to head out to Cafe D'Bar to see Lissy Stanton perform on Sunday.

The Banora Point artist has been producing her own original tracks for 10 years and loves being a full-time musician.

Stanton is classically trained in jazz on the piano.

"But I don't write in traditional jazz," she said.

"Someone recently described my music as electrified folk with jazz, pop and rock influences."

And she's not lying.

Last year she was nominated in five different categories at the Musical Song Writers awards.

Her latest album The Lissy Stanton Band was released last year and by the end of 2013 she's hoping to have another record out.

She's also planning to head to Canada this year to play in festivals over there.

"Canada's always appealed to me musically," Stanton said.

"Sarah McLachlan runs a festival there predominantly for woman. Go the girls."

To check her out in an intimate performance head to Cafe D'Bar at 4pm on Sunday.
