New Music: Lucy Gallant 'Darkness To Light' Album
Globally acclaimed, award winning solo musician, Lucy Gallant, is strumming riffs throughout international scenes with her well-honed song writing, enchanting vocals, earnest storytelling and infectious rhythms. In a fortuitous series of events, Lucy Gallant will be launching her album Darkness To Light upon the stages of Australia’s Byron Bay Blues Fest. The lead single Not Normal an exuberant declaration to live a life connected to the natural world in search of the beauty’s various forms, free from digital distraction.
Gallant is excited to release her eagerly awaited self produced single Not Normal. The music on this track is an exotic cocktail of upbeat acoustic instruments and spacious electronica, with Gallant’s vocals sharing similarities to the great Amy Winehouse and sharing in the worldly charm of Manu Chao.
In 2017, a video of her singing Not Normal live on London’s Portobello Road went viral, with over 1.8 million views. Thousands of people sought a copy of the song, but Gallant had not yet recorded it. This inspired her to record not only that song, but to produce an entire album. And so, Darkness to Light was born, an album that dances across the earth’s spectrum of colour and texture. With more than
1,000 personally written songs in her arsenal, the British born multi-instrumentalist is well known for instinctively fusing genres to produce her own eclectic sound.
‘Lucy’s a talented songwriter, singer, and musician. Her gigs in the Pussy Parlure and Gully Stage in both 2015 and 2017 were so entertaining, she got the whole audience singing. A real pleasure! Her songs are smart, intelligent and funny... interacting with her audience so naturally and her voice is beautiful and unique, different, like someone you remember such as the likes of Billie Holiday or Amy Winehouse. We look forward to her return.’ - Malcolm Haynes, Glastonbury Festival Programmer
The singer-songwriter and producer has captivated audiences at nearly every major festival, including Byron Bay Bluesfest, Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Woodford Folk Festival in Australia, Art Basel in the U.S.A and the U.K’s iconic Glastonbury Festival.
