Lissie grew up in Rock Island, Illinois, near the Mississippi River, speaking her mind and writing songs from an early age.
For Lissie, her past is something still very much alive and open to interpretation. With the release of "When I'm Alone: The Piano Retrospective," featuring lush arrangements of Lissie's best-loved, most career-defining tunes along with 2 cover songs, the singer is poised to show listeners that her past is hardly static, that the songs she wrote nearly 10 years ago are still fresh and vibrant, evoking feelings old and new.
From the title track, Lissie's voice is moving, breathing with all the strength it had when the original version dropped in 2010, but with a new sort of power behind it - to the of Fleetwood Mac's hit, 'Dreams,' you get the sense that Lissie is writing a love letter to her past. And it's not sad or nostalgic at all, but mature, grown-up, looking backward and forward simultaneously.
