Father John Misty
Before Lana Del Rey occupied the entire spectrum of Lizzy Grant's artistry there was her May Jailer phase. The folk side of Grant resulted in an Edie Brickell-ish acoustic album called Sirens that's still lurking on the web. Del Rey has said in interviews that ex-Fleet Foxes singer-songwriter Father John Misty reminds her of her roots. Typical Misty-cisms are often more drug-addled gonzo folk explorations than anything Grant has released under any name, but there's a shared desire for freedom in both of their work. They eventually toured together earlier this year.
