At just 22 years old, Lia Metcalfe, frontwoman of the Mysterines, embodies a lifetime of experiences, from a memorable encounter with Nick Cave in her childhood to a musical upbringing saturated with influences like Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, and Bob Dylan. Raised in Liverpool, she immersed herself in the world of music early on, performing locally in her teens before fully committing to her passion. Lia’s distinctive voice, characterized by its deep resonance, complements her role as a songwriter. The band’s debut album, ‘Reeling,’ reflects Lia’s creative divination in crafting emotionally intense and thematically diverse songs. With influences ranging from Tom Waits to Dua Lipa, Lia’s lyrical style explores the darker aspects of life with a touch of black humor.
