Having now decamped to the UK from her home base in Ojai, California for the foreseeable future, Lissie continues to tread the boards across the nation‘s live venues. Having recently completed a series of dates as special guest to Joshua Radin, City & Colour and Local Natives and a headline tour of the UK with Alan Pownall, Lissie’s program of touring has included a sold out show at London’s ICA and seen Lissie winning the hearts of many with her four triumphant Glastonbury appearances and slots at Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park, Oxegen, T in The Park & Latitude, V festival, iTunes festival, Summer Sundae, Secret Garden Party, & Cambridge Folk Festival with Bestival still to come, alongside headline dates in the US and at the Austin City Limits festival.
Hot on the heels of the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Catching A Tiger’, Lissie returns with a new single ‘Cuckoo’ on August 30th through Columbia Records. Already fast becoming a live favourite, Cuckoo looks set to continue what has already been an action packed year for her.
It has already been a whirlwind few months for this mesmerizing new artist from Rock Island, Illinois with a list of highlights as long as her arm including; her performing on Later with Jools Holland, GMTV & BBC Breakfast News, dueting onstage with Ellie Goulding, triumphantly winning over the SXSW festival with an unfathomable 10 shows in 4 days, championed by as broad a media spectrum as you could possibly imagine – from single of the week in TheSun, raved about by US gossip mogul Perez Hilton (who witnessed one of her Austin SXSW performances and has swooned over her voice ever since), and praised by the likes of Q, Clash, Uncut, The Sun, Sunday Times, Big Issue, Daily Mirror and playlisted across UK radio to name but a few places. She recently performed, jammed and recorded as part of the week-long Communion event alongside members of Mumford & Sons, Keane and a variety of others atLondon’s Flowerpot to rapturous response; the fruits of these sessions will be released later this year.
Online she has picked up well in excess of 4.5 million plays on YouTube as fans have discovered her charms, alongside some spectacular cover versions, that began with her take on Metallica’s ‘Nothing Else Matters’ for the Dermot session and has since taken in Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ & Kid Cudi’s ‘Pursuit Of Happiness’ along the way to rave response, showing the versatility and depth of that voice that has also seen her pick up praise and support from a broad range of artists, from Courtney Love, Katy Perry, Mumford & Sons, Mark Ronson to Ellie Goulding.
