New Treat #17: Lissie

I know my last post was about Lissie too but since finding her Daytrotter session, I can’t stop listening! And so I decided she deserved a spot as a new treat. Lissie, who is from Mississippi, Illinois, has a beautiful voice and quite alot of hype surrounding her at the moment. She reminds me of a mixture between an old country western singer and a 70’s rock chick. Lissie is releasing an EP on 5th April called ‘In Sleep’, there is a video of the title track below. Her album is expected to follow this summer and it will be interesting to see what direction she goes in as she seems to have such a range of influences. I just love her voice! She’s going on a UK tour, supporting Joshua Radin next month, the dates are below.

April 7th: Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms

April 8th: London Shepherds Bush Empire

April 10th: Nottingham Rescue Rooms

April 12th: Birmingham O2 Academy 2

On the post below there is a free mp3 of ‘Everywhere I Go’, one of the tracks from her daytrotter session, its my favourite of her songs! I’d also recommend Little Lovin’. If you would like a listen on myspace click here. Enjoy!
