Country pop and laid back acoustic strumming from the sunkissed singer-songwriter.
Lissie's "Carving Canyons" finds the acclaimed singer-songwriter digging deep to carry on through life's many uncertainties. The singer-songwriter's fifth album is her most personal expression yet, with twelve songs that chart the ripples caused by heartbreak and loneliness as well as what happens when the soul perseveres amidst pain. "Carving Canyons" is as deeply felt as Lissie's music has ever been, with sumptuous production and indelible melodies that will surely stand the test of time.
"Carving Canyons" came about at Lissie's own pace, following tour outings behind 2018's "Castles" and the piano-based retrospective "When I'm Alone" from 2019. "It wasn't a time where I felt like I had a lot to say," she recalls, "and each record typically comes from a shift in my life where I need to share things."
As the Covid-19 pandemic spread across the world, Lissie was also dealing with an impactful breakup on her Iowa farm. "It was such a heavy time - not just for me but for the world, of course - and I needed love, support, and connection," she says. "Because there was so much isolation, it was an important period of time for me to explore some of my dark places and process it all."
