Lissie? Urgh. For me, it's a name that conjures up an image of some English Sloanie flashing a bit of Daddies bonus pay about the place and wangling a record deal in the process. The truth is far more appealing.
For one, she's not from England, hailing instead from the American Midwest. More importantly however, it's clear she's a grafter. Having opened for Lenny Kravitz way back in early '08, it's only now, nearly three years down the line, that she's released her debut album Catching a Tiger, getting the worldwide recognition she deserves with her powerful brand of husky voiced folk rock.
Having toured America extensively, Lissie will be playing dates throughout the U.K. and Europe right through November/December. For now, satisfy yourself with her fine cover of Metallica power-ballad classic Nothing Else Matters...and yes, that guy is playing the bass and precussion at the same time.
