Biography

Brooklyn, NY-based pianist, singer, and songwriter Lia Ices was born and raised in Connecticut, where she began playing piano at the age of five, although she didn’t discover her penchant for songwriting until years later while studying at N.Y.U.‘s famed Tisch School of the Arts’ Experimental Theater Wing. Sounding a bit like Tori Amos in a Cat Power world, Ices quickly captured attention in the area, eventually releasing the eight-song album Necima in 2008 with Nicolas Vernhes’ Rare Book Room Records. The pop songstress caught a break in 2010, signing onto indie label Jagjaguwar and beginning work on her second album. The album, Grown Unknown, was released in 2011 and featured a guest performance from Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.
