Recently, Lissy opened for Rosanne Cash. Lissy has already put together an E.P. album that has more of a traditional bluegrass sound. She plays the banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and Harmonica. Some songs don't require any instruments, just the sound of her captivating voice.

Biography

When Lissy Rosemont's side project "The Junior League Band" isn't touring, Lissy Rosemont is working on her solo career. Lissy has only been seriously pursuing her music career since 2006 when she traded her microscope for a microphone. Originally she planned to become a doctor. She attended Georgetown University where she earned a master's degree in physiology and biophysics. She had a fellowship at the National Institutes of Health working on breast cancer research, and was even accepted to medical school.

But her passion for music steered her down a different course, a course that was paved by her parents when she was just a kid. The Atlanta native grew up with many musical influences. From late at night when her parents would ask her to sing Hank Williams songs in her nightgown to the early morning when her mom would be playing hymns on the piano.

Lissy never thought she could make a full time career out of playing music, but she's having the time of her life playing in front of audiences around the country. She has no regrets, and hopes to keep singing, writing, and playing music.
