Lissie Announces February/March Tour Dates

On the heels of her recent tour with City and Colour, Lissie has announced new tour dates in February and March. She will travel to London this week for two shows – including a performance at the HMV Next Big Thing Festival – before returning home to headline two of her own gigs, on Valentine’s Day at Muddy Waters in Santa Barbara, CA, and on February 16th at the Hotel Café in Los Angeles, CA. Lissie will then head out to sea to perform on the Cayamo 2010: A Journey Through Song cruise from February 21st – 26th alongside Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett, among others. Beginning March 11th, she will tour in support of The Low Anthem en route to SXSW. Lissie is also now confirmed to perform on select dates of the Lilith Fair tour later this year.

Lissie’s Why You Runnin’ EP was released November 10, 2009 on Fat Possum Records and has been earning the young singer high praise, with coverage in Bust, Filter, Marie Claire, Nylon, and Under The Radar, among others. 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.”

Her live shows have been drawing acclaim, too, with Soundcheck Magazine‘s blog writing, “The first time I heard Lissie on Minneapolis’ ‘The Current’ I had only one reaction: this is the breakout artist of 2010, I’m calling it now. Seeing her perform live at Central Presbyterian Church in Austin, TX merely confirmed this assumption. Lissie, standing like a dirty angel under the cross performing…singing, wailing, about angels following her home – pretty freakin epic if you ask me.”
