Elizabeth Maurus( aka Lissie)

Elizabeth Maurus, otherwise known as lissie is an American folk rock artist desending from Rock Island, Illinois. In 2007 she produced a four song EP, and soon after she started to gain a critical following after receiving much valued airplay on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" in America. In early 2008 she was invited on tour by Lenny Kravitz on his "Love Revolution Tour" after he discovered her my space page. In early 2010 Lissie toured the Uk with Ohio born singer/songwriter Joshua Radin and soon after she signed with Sony Music UK's Columbia Records. Her debut album "Catching a Tiger" was releashed on the 21st of June 2010 and recieved rave reviews, especially her second single, "When I'm alone",which was chosen by Itunes UK as their song of 2010.  With her star on the rise both nationally and internationally she has recieved much support throughout Europe, America and Australia. Lissie was also featured on numerous tracks on Snow Patrols album "Fallen Empires" which was releashed at the end of 2011.She is currently playing gigs throughout America, and is again returning to "Coachella" festival in California on the 15th and 22nd of April. She will also be returning to the UK in August to play many festivals including Boardmasters and V festival. For anyone who wants to learn more about Lissie she has her own website at: www.lissie.com. One thing for sure is that I am most definitely a lissie fan, and I predict her second album to be even more of a success!!!
