Having sold almost two million albums in Europe before packing up and moving her life to Nashville, British artist Lucie Silvas removed herself from everything that was familiar to forge a brand new path in an unknown territory. She was determined to break new barriers, defy musical genres and make her own rules as an artist. A few years into immersing herself in the music scene, Lucie became one of the most sought-after writers in Nashville while also recording her breakthrough independent album, "Letters To Ghosts," for which she garnered huge accolades from critics and fellow artists alike.
This album, while earning Silvas a place at the table both musically and personally in Nashville, offered up the amazing opportunities to tour with the likes of Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton and a diverse range of artists both in and outside of country music.
In 2018 came the follow-up and much-anticipated release of the critically acclaimed album, "E.G.O." Rolling Stone raved about her ."..rafter-shattering vocals and genre-defying musical landscapes" while Newsweek claimed ."..it doesn't matter what you call this kind of music -- other than great!" She spent the better part of the next two years touring with Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Anderson East, James Bay, Tom Odell, Greg Allman and a slew of other critics' faves. Her self-directed and produced videos from this album also shed light on her charismatic and diverse talents.
Fast forward to 2021, after a long pause where, like so many others, Lucie started to piece together a brand new chapter. While working on a 5th studio album she wanted to release a few songs close to her heart, two of which were dream collaborations for her.
The first of the songs released, "Home Truths," finds itself among some of the world's biggest pop stars on digital playlists everywhere; a real breakthrough in Lucie's ongoing defiance of playing into genres and just letting the music find its own way. Sheryl Crow then joined Lucie on "Cool Down," an upbeat, infectious and undeniable vocal pop diddy. The two are also featured in the straight-forward, honest and beautiful performance-based video. "We Don't Know We're Living" was performed by Lucie for the very first time while on tour with Brandi Carlile shortly before the pandemic. Carlile took an immediate love and passion for this song prompting her later to join in on the recording of it for this album. Joy Oladokun also lends her vocals rounding and bringing out every essence of the universal message, appeal and musicality of the song.
"Life is constantly changing and everything has shifted for me, my dreams have expanded in new areas of life and yet some feel less encumbering than before. I'd love to keep forging this path of finding homes for music that isn't of any particular genre. The dream is to create what we love and with it, break down barriers of any and all kinds. Every album I've made was born from my lifelong passion of songwriting with my own sound and soul in tow. The next step is about finding a way to honesty and openness about who I am in a world that can make me want to keep my guard up. With every song I write, I'm breaking down that wall."
