Darke County Center for the Arts will close its current Coffeehouse Series season on Thursday, April 12 at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville with a performance by singer/songwriter Lisa Biales. “Lisa's crystal pure voice is pure joy to listen to,” said Keith Rawlins, DCCA Artistic Director. “She can and does sing everything, and sings it all incredibly well,” Rawlins continued. The concert by Lisa Biales (pronounced Be-Alice) begins at 7 p.m.

According to Rawlins, Lisa grew up in a musical family, and began singing at a very early age. Her mother was an accomplished actress and singer whose talents and instruction inspired Lisa's love of singing. Her father fronted a Dixieland Band which featured Lisa as a songstress when she was only sixteen. In addition to the four albums of music recorded as part of the award-winning duo Prairie Orchid, Lisa has released five solo albums with a sixth recording, Just Like Honey, set for release in June. An artist whose concerts include songs ranging from great American standards to traditional folk to blues and jazz, Lisa is said to also charm audiences with her friendly demeanor and delightful stories.

DCCA's Coffeehouse Series features high-quality professional artists in an inviting social setting where food and drink are also available for purchase. The Coffeehouse performances are sponsored by Tom and Julie Graber, Steve and Eileen Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. Additionally, DCCA receives support from the Ohio Arts Council, which helped fund this concert with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Tickets for the Lisa Biales performance cost $10, and may be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or If any remain by showtime, tickets will also be available at the door.
