Got a new favorite rock chick to date in the person of LISSIE (born Elisabeth Maurus, 1982 in Rock Island, Illinois). I've been following her for a few months now after discovering her fantastic song covers from Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Kid Cudi among others. Since releasing her debut EP "Why You Runnin" last year and her first full length debut album "Catching A Tiger" last June, Lissie has been on the elevator up to stardom...She won the acclaim of new fans everywhere after performing shows with Lenny Kravitz, Joshua Radin and at the SXSW festival.
Lissie really is one hell of a talented artist, and there is no reason not to be acquianted with her by now.
Check out her awesome covers below:
HELLO (Lionel Richie cover) excellent job on this...lissie nailed it!
BAD ROMANCE (Lady Gaga cover) the most awarded song at the 2010 VMA, this is totally what this song should sound like
NOTHING ELSE MATTERS (Metallica cover) Lissie is the Cover Master...amazing!!!
STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN (Led Zeppelin cover) i thought no female could cover this but Lissie did. And she did it bloody brilliantly!!
