Before ever releasing her debut EP Why You Runnin’ in 2009 under the eponymous-inspired moniker “Lissie,” Elisabeth Maurus began her musical journey early in her life.
Influenced by her mother and grandfather, Maurus grew up taking voice lessons and secured the lead role in the musical “Annie” at the age of nine. During high school, she learned how to play guitar and began writing songs to cope with her typical teenage growing pains.
After a semester abroad studying in Paris, Maurus moved to Los Angeles to follow her dream of playing music professionally and signed with Sony Music UK’s Columbia Records prior to dropping her first full-length record Catching a Tiger in 2010. Since then, the folk-rock artist has released two more studio albums — 2013’s Back to Forever and My Wild West earlier this year — and used her music to help fund-raise for orphanages in Haiti and ALS research.
With opening support from singer-songwriter Skrizzly Adams, Lissie will headline Slim’s in SF this Wednesday. Tickets are available for $21, or you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.
