Lissie: Billboard Tastemakers / US Tour Dates
Rock Island, IL-native, Lissie, has been a slow burn on the US music scene. Her debut LP, Catching A Tiger, was released almost one month ago and has found placement on all the major media outlets. Critics are confused albeit highly intrigued -- the record is a mix off old, introspective, highly-angelic ballads and fresh, new, well-crafted mainstream pop songs. We aren't that confused though. We're one hundred percent on board with all that Lissie touches. While Tiger wasn't the record we expected after our introduction via her EP, Why You Runnin (which has sold almost 40K copies according to Neilsen Soundscan,) we are nonetheless thrilled to watch this campagin take off. What's missing right now? Lissie -- she is touring in the UK. What are we pumped for? Her US tour kicking off on Oct. 6 in LA. Meanwhile, you will need to satisfy your desires via this fantastic Billboard Tatsemakers piece. Dig "Bully" above. Follow the Billboard link for two more Lissie live videos.
