i’m on the pursuit of happiness
and i know everything that shines ain’t always gonna be gold
i’ll be fine once i get it… i’ll be good
This Kid Cudi cover of Pursuit of Happiness performed by Lissie is so raw, gritty, and spellbinding that it is easy to get lost in. Although nothing can truly touch Kid Cudi’s work, there is an assertiveness found in Lissie’s vocals that takes this song to another level. The way that you can hear her grab the lyrics and naturally force them into a pure intensity where she almost runs out of air, makes you reflect on just how damn good this song is in general.

(Kris Lewis is an amazing artist living in Los Angeles by way of New Jersey. His work is beautiful, and heartfelt.)
“Kris Lewis takes much of his inspiration from his mother who taught him the importance of hard work, dedication and a love of tradition. As an immigrant who had to flee from communist forces in her home country of Latvia, she instilled in her son a love of his heritage. Lewis combined this with an appreciation for the old masters, such as Hans Holbein, Albrecht Durer and Hieronymus Bosch, and such additional masters of portraiture such as Andrew Wyeth and Gustav Klimt.”
