Best New Solo Artist 2010 – Paste Magazine

‘puts all of her talents on the table: a powerhouse voice that skips from airy and beautiful to booming and whipping in an instant; a knack for upfront classic-rock melodies; frank, lovelorn and universally relatable lyrics; and some great, cutting guitar work’ – Relix

Lissie has announced a headline show in Whelans on Thursday December 3rd. Tickets €18 including booking fee go on sale this Friday, August 28th, at 9am from Ticketmaster. *Over 18s show.

‘When I’m Alone’

‘Pursuit of Happiness’ (Kid Cudi Cover – Live at Great Escape Festival)

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 of 2009 by Paste Magazine. Lissie’s full-length debut, Catching A Tiger, co-produced by Reynolds and Jacquire King (Kings of Leon) was released in 2010. Paste Magazine named her Best New Solo Artist, VH1 tapped her as a “You Oughta Know” artist, she received a Q Awards nomination for Best Breakthrough Artist and iTunes UK chose “When I’m Alone,” as their song of the year 2010. Scads of festival performances, television appearances and film/TV song placements followed. Along the way, Lissie also released a live CD/DVD of her sold-out show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush, and racked up more than five million cumulative views for her live videos of songs like Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit Of Happiness” and Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” – songs that appear on her five-song 2011 EP Covered Up With Flowers.

Back to Forever, the follow-up to Lissie’s 2010 debut, was produced by Garret “Jacknife” Lee (R.E.M., Snow Patrol, Silversun Pickups). Rolling Stone noted, “the singer-songwriter bares her soul even more” while Relix marveled at the way she “puts all of her talents on the table: a powerhouse voice that skips from airy and beautiful to booming and whipping in an instant; a knack for upfront classic-rock melodies; frank, lovelorn and universally relatable lyrics; and some great, cutting guitar work.”

Last year Lissie released her new covers EP, ‘Cryin’ To You’, featuring stunning re-worked versions of Danzig’s ‘Mother’, One Direction’s ‘Story of My Life’, Judas Priest’s ‘Electric Eye’, Drake’s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ and Bob Dylan’s ‘To Ramona’. Lissie’s exhilarating cover of ‘Mother’, taken from the EP, was synced to the trailer of the blockbuster video game ‘Evolve’, and scored over 10 million views in under two weeks on YouTube.

Lissie will be releasing her third album in early 2016.
