However, you have likely not heard it because of Lisa's long string of bad luck with labels and the industry. Her first album, ''On the Way Down From the Moon Palace'', was issued on her own label and therefore didn't win a wide audience but did convince Capitol Records to take a chance. However, just before the release of ''Happiness'', a reorganisation at Capitol axed the jobs of the executives who supported her and killed promotion. Lisa gained back the rights and moved to famous dream pop label Creator/FourADRecords. There, she remixed some of the tracks with 4AD's in-house producer John Fryer and put out two more well-received albums. However, 4AD's distribution deal with Creator/WarnerBrosRecords expired in 1998, meaning less resources to promote ''Slide''. That same year, Lisa was hired as backing vocalist for Music/TheSmashingPumpkins' upcoming tour, then fired on the day it was about to begin, and while touring by herself to promote ''Slide'' 4AD notified her that she'd be dropped from the label. She quit the music biz for 4 years, then returned only to have another critically-acclaimed album be released on a short-lived label and finally finding a more-or-less permanent home on Young God Records (signed personally by [[{{Swans}} Michael Gira]] because he was a fan of her music).

Starting with 1991, she has put out solo work that is innovative and extraordinary. Her music is [[DreamPop dream pop]][=/=][[BaroquePop baroque pop]] (specifically, the minimally-arranged melancholic ThisMortalCoil brand of dream pop) infused with [[AlternativeRock alternative]] darkness and some folk rock elements. Her songwriting is melancholy yet kooky at times.

Needless to say, all this label-hopping failed to grab a wide audience. [[NeedsMoreLove Perhaps this page will help.]]
