Hailing from Rock Island, Illinois, Lissie nabbed herself acclaim from Bust, Filter, Marie Claire, Nylon, and Under The Radar for her Why You Runnin’ EP, released late last year. A debut for Lissie, Why You Runnin’ was produced by Band of Horses’ Bill Reynolds and recorded with Jacquire King who’s worked with Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon, and Norah Hones.
Lissie posted up her cover of Lady GaGa’s eminent “Bad Romance” on her YouTube channel last week, it’s everything I needed to hear to know that I will be a long-time Lissie fan and patiently waiting for the release of her debut LP, whenever it may come. Download the cover below (via):
