LIA ICES

True to the ever-present dichotomies that serve as a source of inspiration for her, Lia Ices' emotionally driven and experimental pop music is both avant-garde and timeless. A natural yet refined grace permeates her work: she is a piano herself. Dancing on a finely crafted line between the percussive qualities of her instrument, and the melodic elements within the rhythm of her voice, Ices' music reveals itself as epiphany. With such overt elegance as if from a bygone era, listening to her songs inspires a psychic time slip, and its hard to know if you're wading in the warmest of memories or awed by the invention and glow of new surroundings.

Watch A Beautiful Lia Ices Live Version of “Daphne”

Lia Ices performed with her band in the UK at the Green Man Festival back in August, and they recorded a “Green Man Session” of her song “Daphne” that will really blow your socks off. The accompaniment is scaled back, letting Lia’s voice become the main instrument on stage. Lia Ices’s album Grown Unknown was named by Boston Globe‘s James Reed as his 9th favorite record of the year.
