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.
- "Little Lovin'"
- "Wedding Bells"
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. The EP is scheduled for release on Nov. 10.
