Over the May bank holiday as there is little else to do, we curled up on the sofa with our comfy warm layers on, listening to American California-based indie folk artist Lissie.
Let us give you a brief overview of why we love this flaxen-singer-songwriter lovechild so much.
Lissie. A no nonsense woman, she sings with a power that will make you stop what you are doing and listen. Her voice will pleasantly surprise you as you encounter interjections of dusky melodies that bring rest to the soul. That is, until you are gently awakened again by occasional yee-ha twangs and croaks. A raw talent and superb song-writing. What could be better?
We spotted Lissie in her latest commercial project with Twinings for their TV advert aired in March, which features her cover of Fleetwood Mac’s song Go Your Own Way.
Since then we’ve been enjoying all of Lissie’s music, including Everywhere I go, which suits our mood just right today. Note her adherence to wearing no make-up – what a natural beauty she is.

Lissie’s next live performance in the UK will be at Boardmasters Festival in Newquay on August 11.
