Woody Lissauer is a musician and producer, best known for his work with Cubic Feet. Born July 9, 1959 in Baltimore, Maryland, Lissauer was deeply involved in music from an early age. He played in a number bands in school, warmed up for Steppenwolf while still a teenager, and graduated with a degree in music composition from Towson University. He immediately joined The Gordon Michael's Band on A&M Records.
Pursuing a life on the road he traveled with Strangelove, Cinematrix (Chrysalis Records),Multiplex, Crack the Sky (Lifesong Records) and many others throughout the 1980s. Vigil producer Sam Praeger introduced Lissauer to Baltimore socialite Mark Davison and they formed alternative-rock group Cubic Feet. Cubic Feet released Across the River featuring The Weathergirls in 1988 with the backing of Warner Music's publishing arm, Warner Chappell. The band produced three more CDs, Passenger in Time, Inside Rail and Superconnector, all produced by Romantics producer and Procol Harum keyboardist Peter Solley. Weathering the vicissitudes of band life, Lissauer's club work bounced from group to group playing a variety of instruments during the industry downsizing of the 1990s until he settled into solo work and a popular duo with Chris Noyes. This formed the germ of his series of solo CDs featuring Noyes, his sister Kate Lissauer, a well-known English banjo/fiddler in the Appalachian style and others. His self-titled first CD (2004) produced the radio single 'Roses' and a noted version of the old English ballad John Barleycorn. His second solo CD, War and the World (2006) is known for the single 'Shred' and an unusual remake of Jefferson Airplane's Somebody to Love. He has also produced CDs for numerous artists at his studio in Baltimore.
