Born in Colorado Springs (CO), Lisa Marie Simmons now has her home base on the coast of Italy’s beautiful Lake Garda, Simmons collaboratively leads two different ensembles – the neo-folk-soul band Hippie Tendencies and spoken-word-jazz project NoteSpeak – with keyboardist, arranger, and songwriter Marco Cremaschini, each deeply but differently informed by Simmons’ own struggles and triumphs. 
NoteSpeak explores creative paths established by such artists as The Last Poets, Gil Scott-Heron, and Brian Jackson, constantly shifting from style to style yet keeping a consistent, deep groove. Simmons' delivery connects Nina Simone to Jill Scott, obliterating the line between vocalist and poetess.
In 2017, Simmons returned to Boulder for NoteSpeak’s US debut, a free concert performance at the third annual ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival. In 2018, she was an invited speaker at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Conference on World Affairs, and NoteSpeak was nominated in the Spoken Word category for the global 2018 Independent Music Awards. Marco, Lisa and their band debuted NoteSpeak in Europe in November 2019 at the Prague International Jazz Festival hosted by the Reduta Jazz Club and in India on the Jaipur Music Stage in January 2020.
