Here in Seattle, we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of Lia Ices, as she heads our way for her performance at The Crocodile with The Sea & Cake this coming Friday, December 2nd. Her sophomore album, Grown Unknown, has been a constant companion for us since its release in January of 2011, and we are so looking forward to hearing more of what she’s created during the last ten months. She was lovely enough to share with us some of her thoughts on ADVENTURE, what her spirit animal is, and what she finds to be inspiring. We love her motto best. See you Seattleites at the show on Friday?
