Lissy Trullie is more than just another pretty face

Yes, she happened to be the personally chosen model for the new clothing lines of both Chloe Sevigny and Oscar De La Renta’s son, Moses De La Renta.

But lean, angular beauty Lissy Trullie is more than just another pretty face. She’s also an up-and-coming rocker on the New York scene, and one of our favorite new artists, with a great EP under her belt, “Self-Taught Learner.” And on March 6, she’ll finally stake her national-stage claim with a self-titled debut album on the chic Wichita imprint overseas, and Downtown in the states.

Trullie has been writing songs since age 11, in bands since 14. But her full-lengther was produced by top-flight talents John Hill (M.I.A., Shakira, Santigold) and TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, and recorded at their separate studios in Los Angeles.

“I write so I can find something new and hopefully keep growing,” she says. “This was the first time I got into a real studio with real producers, and by the end of the recording process I wound up with what I wanted from the very start — to make music that evolved.”

You can stream or download the set’s first single “Madeleine” at www.rcrdlbl.com, or keep up with her conquest of 2012 at www.trullie.com.

It will definitely be her year.
