Lucie Tiger & ROADTRIP AMERICANA
The open road is where adventure meets spontaneity. It’s about endless stretches of two-lane blacktops and a brand new feeling around every corner. It’s where the stereo is turned up, the windows are rolled down and songs that don’t have you playing drums on the steering wheel are left by the wayside. Lucie Tiger is the embodiment of all of the above, as she blazes a trail down the highway with her “Road Trip Americana” style of country. She disregards conventions for a Muscle Shoals rhythm-rooted practicality that pulls together the classic and the contemporary. She’s surprising the industry one song at a time, so it’s time to buckle up and tag along for the ride.
2020 is set to be a bumper year - hot on the heels of her 2019 USA Tour through the famed Americana Music Triangle, Lucie will be releasing her upcoming EP. Lucie recorded the entire EP at FAME Recording Studios in the landmark music town of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with legendary session musicians Justin Holder, Bob Wray and Will McFarlane, and engineered by the Grammy-nominated John Gifford III and mastered by the Grammy-nominated Don Srygley. Following the release, Lucie Tiger will be back in the States hitting Nashville, Muscle Shoals, Memphis, Clarksdale and more for her 2020 tour.
2019 was a standout year for Lucie - she released the follow-up to 2018's EP, with the single 'Apple Tree' and it's B-side, 'Baby Don't You Go', she was selected to play the Americana Showcase at Australian Music Week and won the SongsOnStage Songwriting Contest in Sydney winning $1,000 prize money. Lucie was also nominated for the Award for Songwriting Excellence by the Australian Songwriters Association.
It feels like Lucie has been playing music forever. With frequent road trips through the dusty Australian countryside with the stereo always on and always loud, it was a given that she'd be a musician. When her father brought home an acoustic guitar and taught her the basics, Lucie couldn't get enough and spent many a weekend trying to figure out her favourite songs by ear. It wasn't long before Lucie started writing her own songs with inspiration coming from everywhere as she journeyed through life, a true traveller at heart - there’s nothing that she loves more than an empty two-lane road with a guitar in the trunk for playing at pit stops.
With upcoming tour dates - including her 2020 USA Tour - and the release of her new EP, 2020 is set to be Lucie Tiger’s biggest year to date. And, in case anyone was wondering - ‘Tiger’ really is her middle name.
