Singer & Songwriter

Folk-rock artist Lissie -- her real name is Elisabeth Maurus -- was born in Illinois. At age 9, she played the title role of the musical Annie at her school. Nineteen years later, in 2010, Paste magazine called her the "best new solo artist" of the year. By then she had played as an opening act for Lenny Kravitz (and for other artists), recorded a Grammy-nominated track, released her EP "Why You Runnin'" and recorded her debut album, "Catching a Tiger."

Lissie has just finished recording new material and will release an EP the week after TEDGlobal, with a full-length album following in the fall.
