Alt-Folk Powerhouse Lissie Premiers New Video, Sun Keeps Risin’

Vocal powerhouse Lissie has teamed up with HelloGiggles to premiere her new acoustic video for “Sun Keeps Risin’.” “Sun Keeps Risin'” officially released on Lissie’s new album, My Wild West, in February via Lionboy Records and Thirty Tigers in the US and Cooking Vinyl in the UK. Her most personal album to date, My Wild West is a fitting tribute to Lissie’s life in California, from her arrival as a fresh-faced singer-songwriter to now, leaving for the Midwest wiser and more self-assured. My Wild West represents both a new beginning and a return to Lissie’s Midwestern roots. Watch “Sun Keeps Risin'” on HelloGiggles, here.

Lissie also recently teamed up with Glamour magazine to premiere her music video for “Daughters,” which features footage from several “charity: water” projects from around the world. Lissie partnered with “ charity: water” in support of International Women’s Day to raise awareness surrounding the non-profit’s mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Watch the video on Glamour here.

Lissie’s two previous albums, 2010’s Catching a Tiger and 2013’s Back to Forever, both scored in the Top 20 of the U.K. charts and Top 5 in Norway, the former going gold in both countries. Stateside, the two releases hit the Top 5 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, peaked at #5 and #11, respectively, on the U.S. Folk tally and went Top 40 on the Indie chart. Her songs have been licensed for countless films and TV shows, and topped numerous Best Of polls. ‘The Longest Road,’ a song she wrote with DJ Morgan Page was subsequently remixed by Deadmau5 and nominated for a ‘Best Remixed Record’ Grammy.

With a career that has seen her open for renowned artist Lenny Kravitz (an early supporter), Tom Petty and was asked to perform at Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s wedding, Lissie has had a wealth of incredible experiences that have made her the confident and determined artist she is today. As she moves on to the next journey, she says, “I feel I’m in a really good place. In fact, I’m already planning a follow-up album, My Mild Midwest.”

My Wild West is now available on Lissie’s Official Merch Store, as well as on iTunes, Amazon & Spotify.

Hello, my name is Arlene Allen, and I love all things nerd: genre tv and movies, books, loud rock and roll music, kittens, conventions, books, graphic novels and superheroes, RPG and tabletop games, and did I say books? Oh, yes. I spent 25 years as a librarian (nerd) mainly working with youth (creating nerds), a number of years as a teacher (more nerd indoctrination). I have my own spawn, leveled up to 22 and my partner in nerdiness. As a nerdy writer, I have found a home at Talk Nerdy With Us.
