Lia Ices’ Mythological Music.

Lia Ices is a singer-songwriter from New York with a singular vocal style, melodies that linger and lyrics that provoke. I saw her last night at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia and just finished a late morning Echoes session with the singer-songwriter at The Music Centre in Exton, PA.   Both were fantastic and I can’t wait for you to hear her Echoes Living Room Concert.  Her sophomore album, Grown Unknown, joins Agnes Obel‘s Philharmonics as one of the most compelling and distinctive song cycles of 2011.

Lia Ices and Echoes John Diliberto

Many of her songs merge lost love, mythological figures and nature metaphors.  You can see a couple of them here.  Lia Ices and her band are currently  on tour.  Lia Ices’ Echoes performance and interview should run late April and early May.  Meanwhile, watch & listen:

    Both Lia and Agnes have similar styles. Each has a haunting, hypnotic voice that is beautiful to listen to and yet somewhat disturbing and melancholy at the same time. They remind me a bit of Regina Spektor. I hope to hear more of them on Echoes.
