The first time I ever heard Lucie Silvas sing was a few years ago at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley. She opened her mouth and out came one of the most emotive and earnest voices I’d ever heard. My jaw hung open in awe, and by the end of the song, I was swallowing my own tears.
Silvas is simply spellbinding. Her gift with words is unmatched, rivaled only by her incredible gift of voice. Raw, raspy, edgy, aching with truth and experience, it’s perfectly and distinctively “Lucie.”
Silvas’ career began when she was just a teenager. A backup gig led to her pursuing her own music and landing a record deal, which sent her touring all over Europe and selling over 1 million albums there. Her roots in Motown, soul and folk culminated in a well-crafted sound that has now found a home in Nashville.
Letters to Ghosts, her latest, fully self-funded album, has been lauded by fans, critics and fellow Nashville artists. The title track, an ode to the emptiness and desperation of lost love, will lift you off your seat before it leaves you feeling completely, appropriately and delightfully haunted.
Check out her fiery performance of “Letters to Ghosts” for CMT Next Women of Country Live and witness the magic for yourselves.
