Lissie [Old Queen's Head - 18th May]

lissie_(c)_andrew_calder

Lissie from Rock Island, Illinois is due to become a much better known name when her debut album is released in June. It’s her voice that makes her stand out. Having grown up with country music, I was taken aback by her soulful distinctive tone, that wouldn’t be out of place at the Grand Ole Opry and so my favourite track by her by a mile is Oh Missisippi, a real gem, takes me back to Ohio River Boat Song by Palace Brothers if anyone remembers that old classic. Looks like she’s going to crossover way beyond the world of country/folk fans doing just fine in the rock/pop zone.

Before she hits the big time, a great opportunity to see her play a small venue, she’s at the Old Queen’s Head in Islington on Tuesday 18th May.

Tickets available here.
