Background

Lissie was born and raised in Rock Island, Illinois, USA - her father is a physician and her mother is an interior designer. She was interested in singing and music from an early age. She played the title role of the musical Annie at the age of nine. “In high school it seems like everyone has more drama than any other time in their life. So that was the time in my life where I really leaned on music as a way to stay sane” she said in an interview.

In her senior year of high school, Lissie was expelled over, what she described, as “something stupid that did, but it was sort of like the culmination of just a lot of negative things that had happened”. She got her degree at an alternative outreach center. She spent two years at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, during which time she would open for musicians who visited the city. She collaborated with DJ Harry of Sci Fidelity Records on the song “All My Life”, which featured on television shows House, The O.C.
