Biography

Luciar is an edgy singer/songwriter, with witty, passionate lyrics and memorable melodies. She'll entertain you on the piano, or her tiny ukulele. Her voice has been likened to the jazzy tones of Ella Fitzgerald and the cooing sounds of Tori Amos.

Luciar's debut album "Rules of the Game," released in 2000 was warmly received and she soon found herself opening for Seal at Jones Beach Amphitheater backed by a band trio of drums, bass and guitars. "Rules of the Game" showcased her pop-rock and world music sensibilities. After some light touring, and notable accolades, (from Billboard Songwriting Contest and American Songwriting Contest, to name a few), she began her path as a solo artist.

In May 2006, she released "Skin," telling a story of a relationship lost and the journey to healing. "Skin" is a sparse arrangement of piano and voice, with occasional bouts of drums & bass. With this album, Luciar rediscovered her love for production and engineering. She setup her studio at home, recorded vocals and mixed the entire album.

2011 has been a busy year for Luciar, performing over 20 dates in more than 6 cities including Los Angeles, Austin and Philadelphia. She is gearing up to release her 3rd album, "Feeling A Little Emo," and is planning a tour for the Spring of 2012. Her single, "Only Love" was released on the GoGirlsMusicFest 2011 CD.

Luciar is a musical moodster, you're never quite sure what she's going to do next...it makes you want to stick around to find out.

Lyrics

Clear

Written By: Luciar

I found my way
the way of everlasting life
it's not in faith
nor in the songs of love I sing
I can't be anything
I saw my life
it past so quickly before me
there was no light
but in the shadows I could see
that there wasn't anyone

the path is clear
there's nothing left of me ahead
a long long life
and not much else of me is left
but I'll hold on
to the feelings I find true
someone will care
someone will take away this fear
he'll be my love
he'll be my love

Deadly Precious

Written By: Luciar

Hello my dear it's your deadly precious
etching a poem on her skin
I wrote this just for you
It's about back when you used to love me then
that look in your eyes I could've sworn they weren't lies
You used to look into my soul
and tell me stories never told

You said
My deadly precious and me we're gonna have a family
we're gonna get right through this thing
no matter how hard it seems

Where the fuck did that story go
You went off and started on your own
Another girl who the fuck is she
How could you start a new life without me
without me
your deadly precious

We used to laugh together
Write notes all day long
My love never died it just kept going on strong
but your love dwindled away
and there's not much else to say

Except that
I'm feeling cold can't feel my knees
could barely move could barely breathe
would someone come and help me please
because inside I feel an itch
and I don't wanna move an inch

Where the fuck did that story go
You went off and started on your own
Another girl who the fuck is she
How could you start a new life without me
without me
your deadly precious

Only Love

Written By: Luciar

have i ever told you?
how your eyes, come alive?
you have that subtle smile
that says baby dear
i'm so glad you're near

no i won't tell, no, no, no
it's only love
no i won't tell, won't yell it to the world
it's only love
only love

you give meaning to my days
worry to my heart
and there's nothing more i'd ask of you
but to...

look at me the way that you do
lovingly, accepting me
pave the way right through my dreams
'cause you're what i dream of

no i won't tell, no, no no
it's only love
no i won't tell, won't yell it to the world
it's only love
only love

have i ever told you?
how your eyes, come alive?
