Although young, it is obvious to all those who listen to her that Lucette is an old and doggedly romantic soul. Full of emotion, her performances take audiences back to the days when artists such as Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Loretta Lynn dominated the airwaves.
The single 'Bobby Reid' off of Lucette's debut album, Black Is the Color, was completed in just one take, capturing the raw and melancholy fluctuations of her effortless and mysterious sound. Teaming up with Blake Judd of Judd Films to shoot the track's music video, Lucette commented, "I feel truly fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with such amazing people on the 'Bobby Reid' video. Blake Judd (with Judd Films) really believed in the project and believed in bringing the song to life." The video, which features Sturgill Simpson and JD Wilkes, premiered on CMT Pure and CMTEdge.com.
Working with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson, Secret Sisters) Lucette wrote and recorded the full-length album, Black Is the Color, in under a month. The two have collaborated and worked together since she was 19 years old.
2014 saw Lucette taking to the road and touring more than ever before. She’s toured or performed with artists such as Nikki Lane, The Secret Sisters, Joe Ely, Jim Lauderdale and Mason Jennings, among others. Lucette most recently toured the US in the fall 2014 as direct support on Sturgill Simpson’s nearly sold-out tour.
In March 2015, Lucette will make her SXSW debut in Austin, TX with an official showcase and multiple other shows. The year will see her continue to tour throughout the States, as well as Canada.
Her song "Black is The Color" was recently featured in the CW's Vampire Diaries, and her music has recently achieved 1 Million listens on Spotify. She shares album producer Dave Cobb with her friend and fan Sturgill Simpson, who makes an appearance in her video for "Bobby Reid" posted below.
