PLUS a copy of the latest record "Why You Runnin'"
on either vinyl or CD (not sure yet)
Why You Runnin' is a five-song introduction to Lissie and pivots around her big, achingly raw and evocative voice. The songs range from the hand-clapping, foot-stomping spirited opener "Little Lovin'" (download here) to the poignant country cover "Wedding Bells" to the haunting, soulful '60s pop-esque ballads "Everywhere I Go" (download here) and "Here Before." These tracks were recorded at her current home in Ojai, CA, and at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC, with her friend Bill Reynolds (of Band of Horses, who also produced and plays bass on the songs alongside his bandmate Tyler Ramsey, who guests on guitar for some tracks).
The hymn-like "Oh Mississippi" was recorded with Ed Harcourt last fall,
when Lissie (originally from Rock Island, IL) was far from home in London, England.
