Folk rocker Lissie grew up in Rock Island, Illinois, near the Mississippi River, speaking her mind and writing songs from an early age. Fans first fell in love with her sun-and-tequila-soaked voice from her five-song EP Why You Runnin’, produced by Bill Reynolds of Band of Horses, which was ranked among the Eight Most Auspicious Musical Debuts by Paste. Lissie’s full- length debut, Catching A Tiger was released in 2010. Paste Magazine named her Best New Solo Artist, VH1 tapped her as a “You Oughta Know” artist and she received a Q Awards nomination for Best Breakthrough Artist. Scads of festival performances, tour dates, television appearances and film/TV song placements followed.
Back to Forever, the album after Lissie’s 2010 debut, was followed by My Wild West in 2016 which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and Top 10 on the Independent Album chart. After releasing her stunning album ‘Castles’ in 2018, which became her first UK #10 album and debuted at #11 on the Current Alternative Albums chart in the U.S, Lissie returned earlier in 2019 with ‘When I’m Alone: The Piano Retrospective’- an evocative collection reinterpreting songs from her first decade in music. Most recently Lissie released her gorgeous new covers EP Thank You To The Flowers, a collection of stunning covers of songs by female artists that Lissie admires. The EP follows her other popular covers, including ‘Go Your Own Way’ and ‘Dreams’ by Fleetwood Mac,’ Bad Romance’ by Lady Gaga, ‘Pursuit Of Happiness’ by Kid Cudi and ‘Nothing Else Matters’ by Metallica, which have collectively amassed 57 million streams and counting.
