four new and previously unreleased compositions.  The month before, movie

France, and CMJ in New York,
later this year Lissy Trullie will enter the studio with producer Bernard
Butler to begin work on her full-length debut, which will be released on Downtown
in early 2010.


This past February, after a year of building up a fan-base by playing gigs
around New York,  Trullie released the EP
on Brooklyn based indie label American Myth to
critical acclaim. She also toured extensively and hit the late night talk-show
circuit. The new songs added to the original EP include the original
compositions “Don’t To Do”, “You Bleed You”, “Hold
Your Head”, and a duet cover of Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend”
recorded with Adam Green.
