Lissie: Tonight at Webster Hall

One of the fastest rising stars out there right now, Rock Island, Illinois' Lissie has been all over the press of late, including this rag. She remains one of the most striking talents we've seen (and spoken with) in recent memory. Her EP Why You Runnin' (out now on Fat Possum) gives merely a glimpse as to the many facets Lissie offers. You need to see her live (tonight) to get a true sense of the powerful voice, commanding stage presence, and finely wrought songwriting. Check out her recent session with Baeble Music above, and go see her tonight. Seriously, do it. She opens for City and Colour.
