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!
