Album: Lia Ices to collab with Bon Iver on sophomore LP
Brooklyn-based singer and pianist Lia Ices returns with ‘Grown Unknown’, another stunning album of quirky pop beauties.
Lia is a scholarly trained, honing her skills at NYU’s Tisch School for Experimental Theatre. There she shed classicism and found her voice – a captivating, aching alto able to flit gracefully between sultry, come-hither coos and emotive yelps. Lia Ices’ emotionally driven and experimental pop music is both avant-garde and timeless.
Following her sublime 2008 debut ‘Necima’, her latest offering ‘Grown Unknown’ is a transcending album of growth and progression, showcasing what she’s really capable of. The album also features a guest appearance from Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. The magic generated by Ices’ and Vernon’s voices together is quite simply a powerful thing.
