Lucie Silvas announces new funky album 'E.G.O.'
The singer/songwriter has delivered an album that effortlessly mixes soul, funk and country, something that comes across as a Stevie Nicks and Linda Ronstadt crossover.
Critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Lucie Silvas makes has announced her welcome return with her fourth full-length studio album ‘E.G.O.’ which is due out on August 24 via Thirty Tigers. The album serves as the much-anticipated follow up to Lucie's third studio LP, 'Letters To Ghosts', which dropped in 2015.
Hailed for her “gutsy, smoldering vocals...razor-sharp lyrics and sparkling melodies”, Lucie has earned critical-acclaim both internationally and stateside. The British-born, Nashville-based singer/songwriter has delivered an album that effortlessly mixes soul, funk and country, something that comes across as a Stevie Nicks and Linda Ronstadt crossover.
The title track is an acronym for "Everybody Gets Off", a song about the conceited tendencies of fame. Speaking with Billboard magazine, Lucie said: “I had the musical freedom to go where I wanted and that’s what made me happy.”
On ‘E.G.O’, Lucie joined forces with longtime friend and producer Jon Green (James Bay, Striking Matches, Linkin Park). All of the 12 songs were co-written by Lucie. Writers and collaborators on the record include Ian Fitchuk, Daniel Tashian, Natalie Hemby, Ruston Kelly, Gabe Simon, JD McPherson and John Osborne.
Lucie is a pianist, songwriter, and vocalist whose genre-defying music has led to performances with a diverse range of artists to date including Elton John, James Bay, Skrillex. She has recently toured with Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert.
Lucie will also be hitting the road later this year as a special guest in support of the Osbourne Brothers UK tour. Find the schedule of dates below.
