Lissie Maurus is probably about 40 years behind the times. She produces a smokey 70s alt-country which instantly catches your ear. Hailing from the banks of the Mississippi, her debut release, Why You Runnin', release in the US brought her to the attention of several publications and garnered much critical praise. While comparisons with the like of Stevie Nicks and Chrissie Hynde are bound to be made, her début album due this summer is set to show that she has her own distinct place.
