LeBlanc composed her first pieces around the age of fourteen. LeBlanc was recognized as an outstanding guitarist and a promising singer-songwriter when she won the Festival international de la chanson de Granby in September 2010. This juried award brought her to the attention of the country's francophone media. She has also played at the 2011 Coup de cœur francophone, at the FrancoFolies of Montreal and at the Festival d'Été de Québec.
The majority of Lisa LeBlanc's first album was written in downtown Rosaireville, in Granby during her studies at l'École nationale de la chanson as well as in Montreal, where she was living. Released in March on Bonsound Records, the album was recorded by Louis-Jean Cormier (Karkwa) at Studio Piccolo.
Lisa's self-titled album Lisa LeBlanc was released in 2012. It has been certified platinum by Music Canada for shipping 80,000 copies.
