Lissie: Lissie grew up in Rock Island, Illinois, near the Mississippi River, speaking her mind and writing songs from an early age. She will release her fourth studio album Castles on March 23. The new music follows the release of her 2016 album My Wild West, which received widespread critical praise. Written predominantly from Lissie’s new home in Northeast Iowa, Castles represents a spiritual as well as musical development. It’s a portrait of an artist who has always been on the move and is finally creating a sense of permanency—a chance to catch her breath and reflect. Of the record, Lissie says, “The album title Castles and the themes of the music itself suggest a striving and a heightened vantage point. I can stand above myself in the tower of my mind and reflect on my relationships and life. There is a maturity, experience and self-awareness to these songs that feel like a natural progression within the context of my work to date.” Amy Stroup: Amy Stroup's music is creating quite a buzz from Garrison Keilor's PHC name, " Top 20 Songwriter Under 30" to be selected as the " Local Lightning 100 on WRLT Nashville" and featured on NASHVILLE SUNDAY NIGHT, to have her songs placed in prominent scenes of Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, and more.
