Lisa Barbuscia, also known as Lisa B., was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She studied music and dance from an early age, graduating from the prestigious High School of Music and the Performing Arts (made famous by the movie 'Fame'). At 15, her exotic looks (a blend of Puerto Rican, Italian and Irish roots) got her noticed by a modeling agent and in no time at all she was whisked away to London where she found success as an International Model.
While living in London, she continued pursuing her musical aspirations. Together with her then boyfriend Ben Volpelliere from 'Curiosity Killed the Cat', they wrote and recorded songs, which secured her a deal with London Records/ Polygram. She also secured a publishing deal with Warner Chapell Music, which soon brought her to Los Angeles to collaborate with other song writers, and where she would embark on a budding acting career. When not in front of the camera, Lisa enjoys being behind the camera. Her interest in photography and writing has led her to contribute to peoplenews.com as well as other magazine publications. Lisa is an active Animal and Human Rights Supporter, campaigning for charities including the International Fund for Animal Welfare (for which she is the UK spokeswoman) and UNICEF.
