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.

Lia Ices On So You Think You Can Dance

 

The music of Lia Ices has been used for several contemporary dances, and the acclaimed dance competition So You Think You Can Dance used Lia’s song “Grown Unknown” for the opening number of their second-to-final show of this year’s season.

The Wall Street Journal wrote:

“Grown Unknown” by Lia Ices is the song for the opening group dance. There’s a lot of clapping for rhythm, a big red rose in the middle and all the dancers are in white. It’s very pretty. And cool music. The rose ascends to heaven at the end and confetti falls to the stage. This might be the first time all season I run to iTunes to buy a song I heard on this show.”
