Lauded for writing "some of the most simple and beautiful songs you will hear" (****The Age), Lucie Thorne has earned her place as one of Australia's most striking contemporary songsmiths. With twelve releases to her name 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) that "...reveals a subtlety and craft that eclipses Thorne's prior work" (Rhythms Magazine)
