Lucie Silvas has announced a return to the UK for a run of dates including a Manchester gig at The Ruby Lounge.
The gig follows Lucie Silvas’ excellent show at Manchester’s Deaf Institute in 2016. Mississippi native Charlie Worsham will also return to the UK as main support on all shows.
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 Europe extensively 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 at the time 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 written for other artists, Lucie packed up and moved to Nashville, TN. where she has now performed and written with some of the biggest and the best in their fields. She began sowing the seeds of this new chapter and hit the road touring with a vast array of artists ranging from Kacey Musgraves to James Bay, from Willie Nelson to Dwight Yoakam and from Little Big Town to Chris Stapleton for whom she is currently opening in the States. She currently has songs on both Miranda Lambert’s and Reba MacEntire’s new albums. Lucie has begun recording the highly-anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed, Letters To Ghosts album which she self-produced and released this past year. You can read more about Letters To Ghosts in our interview with Lucie Silvas.
