"Dave 'Tumbleweed' Single Launch @ The Rosemount, Wednesday July 4"

"Now, by the time I find a way out, BLUE LUCY are performing. They’re a trio, and they seem like good pals: their natural habitat, one suspects, is less the stage and more a bedroom or garden with iced tea and instruments, wholesome afternoon jams and sporadic skylarking. Which is not to say they can’t command the atmosphere in a pub room (though it might be to say that the Rosie’s disco ball and laser show proves to be overkill). Blue Lucy’s music is more like a thick Guernsey sweater than a Snuggie: yes, it’s cosy, but it doesn’t belabour the fact, and you don’t feel (or look) like a twat when you’ve got it on. They veer from rich Appalachian croon-a-longs to glimmer-eyed murder ballads, twee pop jaunts to rock-steeped storytelling that resounds with that Australian dryness. It’s pleasingly eclectic, and if there’s anything lacking it’s not in the songwriting or skill – occasionally, perhaps, in the arrangements, which are short on low end (cello, while beautiful, can only be so beefy) and percussion (same goes for handclaps and tambo). They’re joined by DAVE’s Max on drums on one track, and there is a sense that such an addition fills a genuine void. But hey, that’s not stopping anyone from honing and in vibing along."

"Israel Cannan + Blue Lucy - Mojo's Bar, Fremantle (1.3.11)"

"Mojo’s in North Fremantle is known for attracting some of the best in Australian Musical talent and the night it played host to Blue Lucy and was no exception.
Having never heard Blue Lucy before I was very curious to hear the barefooted trio of folk popsters and their brand of acoustic magic (yes I am skipping to the end here and spoiling the story)
With Madie Drew and Charlie Jones providing guitar and vocals, Blue Lucy feels like the love-child of Casey Chambers and Goodnight Tiger(who saucily appear to have had a one night stand with Macy Gray somewhere along the way). Throw Krista Low in on cello and you have this deliciously lush sound that draws you in and holds you captivated, unable to tear your ears away for even a moment lest you miss the magic that these three very talented women create.
Do yourselves a favour and go check then out at a venue with taste near you."

Bio

Blue Lucy are a “barefooted trio of folk popsters” hailing from Fremantle, WA. Since originally forming as a duo of young songwriters Madie Drewe and Charlie Jones, the girls have been accumulating a repertoire of original songs and performing them at venues around WA, from cafes and bars to festivals including Fairbridge Festival, Nannup Music Festival and the WAMi Festival in 2012, Norfolk Lanes Youth Festival and the Hidden Treasures Winter Music Series in 2011. Some of their achievements include the inclusion of the track "White Sailed Ship" on the 2012 Kiss My WAMi Compilation CD, and advancing to the WA Semi Finals of the National Campus Band Competition in 2011, in which they were awarded the People's Choice Award.

Blue Lucy is composed of the vocal prowess of soulful songstress Madie Drewe, the fingerpicking guitar, ukulele and sweet vocal harmonies of Charlie Jones and the captivating cello of Krista Low. Their sound is infused with an eclectic range of musical stylings, reflective of the members' diverse influences, being collectively inspired by genres such as folk, blues, pop, soul, classical, and country.

Blue Lucy have a “deliciously lush sound that draws you in and holds you captivated, unable to tear your ears away for even a moment lest you miss the magic that these three very talented women create. Do yourselves a favour and go check them out at a venue with taste near you”. (Tony Lendrum, The AU Review – Israel Cannan + Blue Lucy at Mojo’s Bar 1.3.11)
