Biography

Drawing a parallel between Lia Ices and Pink Floyd is much easier than anticipated -- they share a love for space that is both palpable and patient. If you've been curious about a starting point with her, please start here. The A-side originally appeared on MOJO Magazine's tribute to Pink Floyd's mighty Wish You Were Here. Lia's take on the title track soars high and quickly ... Read more in Amazon's Lia Ices Store

Editorial Reviews

Lia Ices' emotionally driven and experimental pop music is both avant-garde and timeless. A natural yet refined grace permeates her work. Ices' voice floats and flutters around you, like the leaves from trees on a fleeting fall day, and the instrumentation matches that subtle dynamism. Grown Unknown is a walk in the park on a day of carnival, the most beautiful day so far this year. Appearing as a guest vocalist for "Daphne," the only duet on the album, is Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, Creative and Made for Winter January 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Probably part of some arts scene in some arts city somewhere in the U.S., singer/songwriter Lia Ices' webpage is stocked with great pieces of unique work. Songs, videos, photographs, artwork - you name it. At first, for me, the draw was Dylan Eastgaard's tasteful video for an older Ices track called "You Will." The subtle winter-friendly style of the video and song sucked me in, demanding that I look closer at this very feminine songwriter who, if I'm being honest, makes a kind of music that I very rarely listen to. Next came the video for "Half Life," directed by Simone Montemurno and Joana Bovay and also not included on Ices' latest release, Grown Unknown. Damn good. Great, even. I had to look even closer.

Ices, a striking artist who looks like a mix between a young Alanis Morissette and Joanna Newsom and sings a bit like a more delicate version of Basia Bulat, released Necima recently before signing with Jagjaguwar, who are just now releasing her first internationally distributed record, the above mentioned Grown Unknown. The initial word that came to mind while first working my way through the record's nine-song, 38-minute playlist is elegant, Ices coming off like a new age Joni Mitchell. A new age Joni, that is, if Joni floated on clouds and never befriended a slew of jazz players. Best described as an avant garde pop singer with a sultry, silencing croon, Ices (who is actually part of the forever booming Brooklyn arts scene) makes the kind of puzzle piece girl pop that fans of Kate Bush, Tiny Vipers and Tori Amos - and even more accessible artists like Feist and Bulat - should flip for.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of best albums of 2011 January 25, 2011
By Lyn1979
Format:MP3 Music
A record that unfolds and grows in intensity over repeated listens. In my opinion a definite nominee for album of the year for 2011.

She is a great singer, the songs were amazing. Her singing style makes all of songs sound too similar but it isn't annoying. Buy it

Ambient, complex, lenifiant, this music relaxes and gives a very good mood.
I bet it will be a blockbuster in a few months.

5.0 out of 5 stars endlessly listenable February 13, 2012
By D. orr
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is one of those albums that I can't get enough of. Amazing combination of talent, mood and accessibility. She manages to walk that line between making music sound fresh and slightly experimental while not being overly complex or egotistical.
