CD of the Week: Catching a Tiger

Last year Lissie released the critically acclaimed E.P. Why You Runnin'. Recorded with Band of Horses' bassist Bill Reynolds, the Illinois-based country folk singer established herself as an artist to watch. Her full-length debut Catching a Tiger fulfills the promise. 

Tracks such as "In Sleep" showcase her guitar chops while "Stranger" could be a b-side from a 60's girl group. 
With admirers that include Katy Perry and David Lynch, Lissie is poised for a major breakthrough.

Lissie performs at the 
9:30 Club on Wednesday, October 20.
