Bruised one minute, defiant the next
Newcomers Of 2010 - Lissie

Back in March of this year, Clash was following Lissie’s trail around the myriad venues of South By South West, the new music conference/festival in Austin, Texas. Having been impressed by what we’d heard before embarking on the adventure, by its end we were truly smitten - the rest of the world fell under her spell following the release of her debut, ‘Catching A Tiger’ in June. Breathtaking sultry vocals adorn countrified pop that extols her upbringing on the banks of the Mississippi. She can bruised one minute then defiant the next; the album’s emotions are naked and enthralling, and it’s all down to her voice. The fragility of ‘Bully’ and the echoing humility of ‘Everywhere I Go’ sees Lissie at her emotive best. If only ‘Catching A Tiger’ hadn’t been a debut, Lissie would find herself in the upper reaches of this year’s album chart.

Did You Know? Instead of using a guitar pick, Lissie puts superglue on the nail of her forefinger to strengthen it before every gig.
