Story by Jack Foley

ACCLAIMED singer/songwriter Joshua Radin and hotly tipped singer Lissie are the next artists to grace the stage of the Hard Rock Cafe in London as part of the Hard Rock Presents Absolute Radio Sessions series of shows.

On Tuesday, May 4, 2010, Radin will perform tracks from his new album, Simple Times, which has received great reviews in UK music press.

Ellen DeGeneres and Miley Cyrus are among his fast growing list of admirers and his music has already featured on hit TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy, American Idol and One Tree Hill.

Fans at the intimate ‘Hard Rock presents Absolute Radio Session’ will also get to hear a live performance from rising star Lissie, who was the name on everyone’s lips following a dazzling performance at South by South West this year.

Described as “a present day icon for lovers of both blues, folk and country” by Q magazine, Lissie has been compared to Stevie Nicks, Chrissie Hynde and “Laurel Canyon prettiness stewed in campfire and bourbon”.

Joshua and Lissie follow in the footsteps of Editors, Scouting For Girls and Amy Macdonald, all which have headlined previous Hard Rock Presents Absolute Radio Sessions shows.

The gig will be hosted by Absolute Radio Hometime DJ Geoff Lloyd and tickets can only be won by tuning into Absolute Radio or logging onto
