Elisabeth Maurus (born 21 November 1982), known by her stage name Lissie, is an American folk rock artist. She released her debut EP, “Why You Runnin’”, in November 2009. Her debut album, Catching a Tiger, was released in June 2010.

Lissie is from along the banks of the Mississippi, Rock Island, Illinois. Why You Runnin’ - the Fat Possum released & Bill Reynolds (Band Of Horses) produced - EP released in the US late last year, earned the young singer high praise, with coverage in Bust, Filter, Marie Claire, Nylon, and Under The Radar to name but a few. In addition to the recent ‘Best of What’s Next’ profile in Paste, the Boston Globe included her in their ‘Names To Know’ in 2010 feature, declaring she is “…not so much a soul singer as she is an incredibly soulful Americana artist who finds the sepia-toned sweet spot between Neko Case, Laura Marling, and the Shangri-Las.” Comparisons such as these and with other luminaries like Stevie Nicks & Chrissie Hynde may already be coming thick and fast, but in 2010 you’ll have a chance to discover who Lissie really is for yourselves; an artist as relevant to the present day as at peace with the artistry of the last four decades.

Recorded mostly in Nashville late last year with Jacquire King (Kings of Leon), as well as further sessions with Bill Reynolds and Ed Harcourt, Lissie’s debut album which will follow this summer is packed full of surprises. « hide
