“her best as well as her most mature work yet.” – Forbes
“The country-flecked instrumental is carried by a resolute marching pulse and steady guitar chords, providing a perfect spotlight for Lissie’s fervent vocal performance” – Under The Radar

Midwestern artist Lissie is a multi-talented tour de force who released her new Americana-tinged indie folk album Carving Canyons today, September 16 via Lionboy Records. Early singles “Flowers,” “Night Moves” and “Sad” received acclaim spanning MTV, No Depression, FLOOD, Under The Radar, Northern Transmissions, Women That Rock, Women of Americana and much more. Earlier this week she unleashed an optimistic new single “Chasing The Sun”.

Lissie appeared in the TV shows Twin Peaks & Loudermilk. She co-owns a pop music genre themed popcorn company Otts Pops Indie Pop as well as living on, managing & conserving 45 acres in NE Iowa. The twelve song collection is a sonic comfort as it simultaneously charts the ripples caused by heartbreak and loneliness as well as what happens when the soul perseveres amidst pain. Fans will have a chance to experience Lissie’s captivating live show on her extensive North American tour which will make stops in NYC, Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia, Iowa City, DC and more.

Produced by Curt Schneider (Patty Smyth, Lucero), Carving Canyons is about looking within while dealing with the uncertainty of the future—finding hope in personal and worldly adversity, no matter what the forecast might say. Inspired by her incredible intergenerational female friend group and the nature that surrounded her, Lissie traveled to Nashville and co-wrote much of the album with a majority of female-identifying songwriters—including Bre Kennedy, Madi Diaz, Morgan Nagler, Natalie Hemby, Kate York, and Sarah Buxton—who also contribute additional vocals throughout the album. Carving Canyons is another step in an impressive career that opens up endless possibilities for what’s to come.
