More Cowbell would love to send one of our lucky readers and a friend to check out this up and coming songwriter at the Triple Rock next Wednesday (January 13th). Lissie recently finished up an opening slot for Ray Lamontagne and is generating quite a bit of excitement.
Singer-songwriter Lissie Maurus was born and raised in eastern Illinois, right beside the Mississippi River. The nature-loving, solitude-seeking Midwesterner began writing music in high school and quickly began performing at coffee shops and open mics.
Now residing in California, Maurus is about to release her debut, the Why You Runnin’ EP, which provides a five-song introduction to her bluesy folk. Shifting from upbeat tunes to soft-spoken country, hints of ’60s soul and subtle pop, Maurus’ sweet and rustic voice ties each track together seamlessly.
To enter to win, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and phone number with the subject ‘Lissie Contest’ by Monday, January 11th at Noon.
Watch Lissie cover Bob Dylan’s ‘Ramona’
