The ‘Carving Canyons’ album is a fresh chapter in an already impressive career that also opens up endless possibilities for what’s to come. Produced by Curt Schneider (Patti Smyth, Lucero) and recorded in Nashville, ‘Carving Canyons’ focuses upon finding an inner strength to face the uncertainties of the future, to main hope to battle personal and social adversity - no matter how tough those challenges appear to be. The album’s single ‘Night Moves’ was playlisted at Radio 2, while her other recent tracks including ‘Flowers’ and ‘Sad’ picked up attention from Clash, The Independent and MTV.
Lissie’s storied career took off with 2010’s ‘Catching A Tiger’, which was certified Gold in the UK, while her other three studio albums have all reached the UK Top 20. Her previous album, 2018’s ‘Castles’, was her highest charting record to date when it debuted at #9. 2021 saw Lissie reflect on her journey so far with the release of an Anniversary Edition of ‘Catching A Tiger’ and the ‘Watch Over Me (Early Works 2002-2009)’ compilation.
Her other experiences include appearances on the TV shows Twin Peaks’ and ‘Loudermilk’; co-owning Otts Pops Indie Pop, a music-themed popcorn company; and managing and conserving the 45-acre site that she lives on in north-east Iowa.
