LISSIE ‘WHY YOU RUNNIN’ EP OUT NOVEMBER 10TH ON FAT POSSUM RECORDS

Lissie, a young songwriter from Rock Island, IL, will release a new EP, Why You Runnin’, November 10th, 2009 on Fat Possum Records.

Why You Runnin’ is a five-song introduction to Lissie and pivots around her big, achingly raw and evocative voice. The songs range from the­­­ hand-clapping, foot-stomping spirited opener “Little Lovin'” to the poignant country cover “Wedding Bells” to the haunting, soulful ’60s pop-esque ballads “Everywhere I Go” and “Here Before”. These tracks were recorded at her current home in Ojai, CA, and at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC, with her friend Bill Reynolds (of Band of Horses, who also produced and plays bass on the songs alongside his bandmate Tyler Ramsey, who guests on guitar for some tracks). The hymn-like “Oh Mississippi” was recorded with Ed Harcourt last fall, when Lissie was far from home in London, England.
