Catching a tiger

by Lissie.

This time I'm gonna write about my latest favourite CD.

 LISSIE - CATCHING A TIGER

Amazon was right - this artist is really something for my music taste.
For me, she is THE newcomer of the year... yes, before Ellie Goulding, sorry. I love Ellie but this girl rocks. American country girl from the Mississippi, Lissie impressed me not only with her gorgeous rough voice but also with her music talent. Her songs mostly start a bit slower but rock at the end. And I love it when she is playing and singing fast. 11 songs full of passion and honesty. Something that is really needed in those times when we are overflooded by wannabe-sexy musicvideos and stupid lyrics like "Give it to me, baby like boom, boom, boom, What I want, want, want is what you want, want, want" (Rihanna girl, who is writing that crap for you??)


Lissie seems to be a girl you can steal horses with. And she is showing us unknown possibilities. What I mean? Well, first I have to admit, I like the Gaga-Music, but what Lissie made out of "Bad Romance" is stunning!
Have a listen yourself:


And here is a gorgeous live version of her single "When I'm alone". She totally rocks live. Damn I can only tell it by the videos I've seen yet... hope she'll be playing live here in austria this winter.


I love to drive my car while listening to her. Perfect soundtrack for a roadtrip.
Lissie gets 5/5 tigers :-)

Wishing you a great weekend!
Love,
Melanie

Lissie is awesome! I have never heard of her before and I actually love her kind of folk/country music. I am totally off to find some of her stuff to buy! I do a meme on Tuesdays called Tunes I Like Tuesday. Have a stop by tomorrow and check it out. I love finding new music. Thanks!

Stopping by from SITS and now following you!

WOW, she IS amazing! Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to listen to more.

I'm stopping by from SITS. I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e. I love your blog so far, so I just became your newest Follower.

I also wanted to give you a few suggestions since you are looking for a new blog design. You really should check out The Cutest Blog On The Block, Allie Brown Layouts or Graphic Designs by Traci. I got my main layout from 'Allie Brown Layouts' several months ago and I have really enjoyed it. However, recently I decided that I wanted to dress it up a little and make it more my own. That's where 'Graphic Designs by Traci' came in. Traci is one of my sweet, sweet friends I met online. Her main blog is Ordinary Inspirations. She helped me by sprucing up my original header, toolbar, button and sidebar headings. Then she created a custom signature for me. She can do anything from a complete makeover from scratch to just 'a la carte' items like buttons, toolbars, siggys, etc. Her prices are very reasonable and I am absolutely thrilled with the results!!

Good luck with your design however you go about it. ;0) I can't wait to see the results!!

In the meantime, I would love for you to come visit my blog and follow me, too, if you like what you see. See you soon!

HAPPY LABOR DAY!

Blessings,
