Lauded for writing “some of the most simple and beautiful songs you will hear”, Lucie Thorne has earned her place as one of Australia’s most striking contemporary songsmiths. With eleven releases to her name – including her latest LP Everything Sings Tonight – and a prodigious touring schedule, Lucie Thorne continues to carve out an extraordinary creative career. After several years working quietly under the radar, Thorne’s 2009 release Black Across The Field brought her to the attention of a much broader audience. This album was shortlisted for the prestigious Australian Music Prize; was awarded Best Roots Album of 2009 by the Sydney Morning Herald; and had a song selected for inclusion on a Universal Records international compilation alongside Leonard Cohen and Radiohead.
Since then Lucie has been touring far and wide in a sensational duo collaboration with legendary drummer Hamish Stuart. Their 2011 release Bonfires In Silver City was hailed as “World-class” (AMG); “an album of powerful intimacy and poetic deliverance” (Life & Style Magazine) that “…reveals a subtlety and craft that eclipses Thorne’s prior work” (Rhythms Magazine). Along with a remarkably consistent Australian touring schedule, Lucie also tours regularly across much of the European and North American continents. She lives in Melbourne’s north. “Australia’s PJ Harvey… possessing the punch of Cat Power and the wise words of Joni Mitchell” (The Courier Mail)
