Here's a short bio, adapted from her website:

When expelled from high school in her senior year, Lissie hit the road to create and perform music. She traveled solo around the country, singing wherever she happened to be.

"I played a lot of open mics in the towns I visited and in Fort Collins, Colorado where I went to college. I met other musicians. I would open for the traveling acts that came through town, like G. Love and Special Sauce and Ozomatli. I met DJ Harry and he liked my voice. We wrote a song together and it ended up on his album, ?Collison.? It was trip hop, different from the folksy acoustic songs I'd been writing. It opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me." The song, "All My Life" received a good deal of college and AAA radio airplay, and placements in the TV shows, ?The OC,? ?Veronica Mars,? ?House,? and ?Wildfire,? as well as in the documentary "Who Killed the Electric Car?"

Lissie spent a college semester studying in Paris. Her courses took a back seat to her love of performing. "I felt like I kept getting better- the responses were positive, overwhelming. I decided to quit school so I could pursue this way of life." Lissie moved from Paris to Los Angeles, where she hit the open mic circuit and quickly landed a gig at Genghis Cohen and was introduced to Guy Oseary, who invited her to perform during the clandestine wedding ceremony of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.

In 2007, Lissie produced an EP through her imprint label Lionboy Records. The four-song release has received national airplay and prominent film placement, as well as a national/international touring gigs with Lenny Kravitz and John Fogerty. Her hit song Longest Road (remixed by Morgan Page) is currently #4 on the UK Billboard Charts. She's currently in the studio with writing and recording her highly anticipated debut album due out in 2009 on Sony BMG UK.
