Album Review: Live At Union Chapel - Lissie Little do artists manage to pull off live albums when removing the protection of the production that goes into making a record. There’s no edits, no time for adjustments, no fancy auto-tune. It’s just you, the pressure of an audience, a few instruments and a microphone. You’re in the spotlight, simple.

The London gig was sold out.
