Now residing in California, Lissie has been pouring every ounce of love into her musical productions. Her EP Why You Runnin' was produced by friend Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses bassist), and introduced listeners to Lissie's ability to paint painstaking emotion, reflection and maturity. Her full-length debut, Catching a Tiger, is no different.
Though she shifts between upbeat spirited tunes to soft-spoken country, fringes of '60s soul and subtle pop smarts, her characteristically sweet and rustic billowing seamlessly threads each track together. Catching a Tiger is strong, bluesy, and sensual. Perhaps BBC Music reviewer Mike Diver said it best--"[Lissie] sounds like one of the greatest female vocalists of a generation, arguably without even really trying."
