    With a fan base growing by the minute, a voice that has critics crowning her the next Stevie Nicks, and more stage presence than an entire 30-piece marching band, Lissie has practically got "rock star" tattooed across her forehead. Plus, there's also that cover she did of Kid Cudi's "Pursuit Of Happiness" that totally blew our minds and won us over...for life.

    Having released her second album, Back to Forever, this past October, the Ojai-based singer just finished an extensive international tour.
