Lissie has confirmed a headline show at London’s ICA on July 27th .It comes hot on the heels of her already sold out show at London’s Bush Hall later this month and the release of her highly anticipated debut album ‘Catching A Tiger’ on June 21st on Columbia Records.
Her current single ‘When I’m Alone’, also release on June 21st is playlisted by Radio 1, 2, Absolute, Xfm, Bauer network & Q radio and being spun frequently elsewhere across the nation’s airwaves, radio 2 have also awarded ‘Catching A Tiger’ their coveted Album Of The Week. Lissie’s recent sessions for radio 1’s Rob Da Bank and Dermot O’Leary for radio 2 both showcasing the depth of quality of her voice, and giving listeners a glimpse into the captivating artist behind the songs. In a year dominated thus far by stylistic female artists – Lissie stands out notably from the crowd; there is nothing whipped or spun, styled or shaped about her, her performances are both refreshing and honest and individually unique.
Recorded in Nashville late last year with Jacquire King (Kings of Leon) & additional songs with Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses), ‘Catching A Tiger’ is packed full of surprises. For starters there is a voice that crackles with the influence of the blues as much as it does with say folk music, and a range and delivery that could put most rock singers to shame. Then more importantly there are the songs; where wonderfully brooding & emotionally charged stories mix with a magical warmth that feels as at home blasting out of a radio today as it does driving across the desert with the wind in your hair.
