Daily Dose Pick: Lissie

Rootsy California singer/songwriter Lissie caught the public ear with her heartfelt covers of Lady Gaga, Kid Cudi, and Metallica, but her debut album shows she’s just as captivating with her own songs.

Catching a Tiger features a lively blend of rock, country, and classic pop, often reminiscent of Stevie Nicks-fronted Fleetwood Mac, and always anchored by Lissie’s stunningly soulful vocals. The sensibilities are retro, to be sure, equally mining ’70s and ’80s West Coast tropes — but always with enough sincerity to leave little doubt about Lissie’s earth-bound authenticity.
