Lovin' for Lissie

I can't remember how or when I first heard of Lissie, but somehow her music managed its way onto my iPod and became my pleasant surprise as it snuck into rotation during my early morning train ride. Her voice has officially become the theme of my commute, rocking me slowly in and out of consciousness in perfect rythym with the train. Regardless of the specifics of your commute, I guarantee you will find some place in your day in which Lissie's melodies fit your mood. Her sound is organic and honest; her voice is powerful but soothing. I instantly picture this midwest-turned-LA girl laying in a field, surrounded by sunflowers. I am totally aware that this post is quickly turning into my "hippie" moment, but I promise you'll get it when you give her music a listen.

As for my favorites, I am obsessed with "Little Lovin'" and "Everywhere I Go." Check out her MySpace page and let me know what you think of this fresh-faced girl next door...
