Born in the UK and raised part of her life in New Zealand by her Kiwi dad and Scottish mother, Lucie Silvas grew up listening to her parents favourites from Ray Charles to Nat King Cole to James Taylor and Roberta Flack. She started playing the piano and writing songs at age 10 but wasn't exposed to the music industry until she was 17 when she went out on the road as a backing singer for British singer/songwriter Judie Tzuke.
A few years later she released her debut album on Mercury Records, Breathe In, and toured extensively around Europe for the following years with both her debut and second album. She went on to sell well over a million albums in Europe, alone. Lucie worked and toured with many artists throughout Europe including the likes of Elton John, Jamie Cullum, Macy Gray, and Jamiroquai.
After achieving massive success for both her own music as well as songs she had written for other artists, Lucie packed up and moved to Nashville, TN. where she has now written and performed with some of the biggest and the best in their fields. Still without having released a single recording yet in the U.S., she started sowing the seeds of this new chapter and hit the road with a vast array of artists ranging from Kasey Musgraves to Tom Jones (yes, Tom Jones) to James Bey, Little Big Town and shared the stage at Bonnaroo with Skrillex and Ms. Lauryn Hill.
Lucie has just released her long-awaited and much anticipated album, “Letters To Ghosts” on her own imprint, Furthestpoint Records. This is a fully self-financed endeavor and one that came from sheer passion, drive and a slew of generosity and favours from some of the greatest players in and out of the Nashville market who all saw the raw talent and amazing body of work in the making. The album features the first hit, Letters To Ghosts, which continues to rear its head at new radio stations each week all over the country. All the songs on the album were co-written and co-produced by Lucie with many tracks already having been licensed for major network television and film.
Along with the release of this album, Lucie wrote and produced the first two storyline videos – Letters To Ghosts and Villain – which will lead into a third video, Smoke, that will close the book on this much lauded trilogy. CMT and MTV.com have already embraced both videos and CMT have put Lucie in their CMT Artist Discovery Program.
She is currently Spotify’s 2016 Spotlight Artist and is being highlighted in a multitude of musical genres expanding her audience tenfold.
She recently received massive accolades for her acclaimed performance on BBC Sessions 60th Anniversary of Elvis Presley’s Sun Sessions.
