Elisabeth Maurus is known in music circles simply as Lissie, the singer songwriter born and raised in the Midwest. She knew at an early age that music was the clear choice for her moving forward in life. Catching a break as a chosen tour opener for Lenny Kravitz in 2008 led to recording her first full length album, Catching a Tiger (Columbia Records). Favorable reviews and touring in support of the album, mostly in Europe, helped Lissie build her fan base. In fact, she was featured on four songs from the most recent Snow Patrol album. Currently residing in the peaceful community of Ojai has helped maintain her small town roots. Lissie's sophomore full length, Back to Forever, was recently released to coincide with a late autumn tour. The album really highlights her vocal strength, while also showing her ability to play a guitar as well. Drawing on the past while looking to the future makes this a much more accessible album. This is a talented indie pop singer, maturing as a person as well as in her music.

The aforementioned tour stops here in San Diego at the House of Blues on Wednesday December 11. Be sure to arrive early for Nashville's Kopecky Family Band. This is an all ages show, tickets can be purchased here.
