Lissie:: Why You Runnin’ EP; Denver tonight w/ Ray LaMontagne

Lissie_EPCover_loLissie’s new five song EP, Why You Runnin’, may take the prize for best short work of the year as each track gracefully finds its own oxygen. Talk of Georgia pine, Mississippi moonshine, and other terrestrial element ensues on opener “Little Lovin,” an uplifting call done in rich soulful voice and warming reverb. The reverential piano expression of “Oh Mississippi” may be the constant of Why You Runnin’s abounding rural backdrop though that is surely subjective.  Excellent. Lissie brings her Midwestern earth and air gospel to the stage as opener for the Denver and LA spots on Ray LaMontagne’s tour.
