Hailing from Rock Island, IL, singer-songwriter Lissie Maurus has just shared her latest acoustic set, featuring three tracks off her latest album My Wild West. Lissie has always been keen to acknowledge and honor her upbringing.In addition to her midwest roots, the guitarist has also spent time in California (around a decade), from which she draws heavily for the tracks “Hollywood”, “Wild West”, and “Ojai”.
Maurus has recently moved back to her familiar midwest, settling in Iowa in what she describes as an idyllic, relaxing, country-style home. The acclaimed vocalist is eager to speak on these experiences separately and blend them together for future work. The stripped down yet accessible acoustic session can be viewed here. Stay tuned for future announcements regarding Lissie Maurus. The track “Don’t You Give Up On Me” can be streamed below.
