After coming together as a band in 2007, Miss Lissa and Company have been gaining recognition in the regional and international blues scene. In 2011, the Dayton band won the Cincinnati Blues Challenge which sent them to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis earlier this year. Miss Lissa and Company is looking ahead to lots of regional live performances in the late summer and early fall with the hopes of recording a full-length follow-up to their EP, Back to Your Mamma.
David Busarow (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar), Jack Badgley (Guitars), John Winch(Bass, Piano) and Sam Pickard (Drums) visited the WYSO studios last fall shortly after winning the Dayton Band Playoffs under the name the Outliers. Nearly a year later, they've changed their name to The Giant Steps and recently completed an album called Transitions. The Giant Steps returned to the WYSO studios to perform on Kaleidoscope and chat about what's next for the young band.
