"Lucy Stone - Would You? EP"

These days it seems that everyone thinks they can rap/produce/DJ/karaoke. You look around at some of the young artists representing “new music” these days and you are in no shortage of the bass-so-loud-and-synths-on-high, already-been-done-but-ill-do-it-better DJ/Producer combo. Or the download-a-sample-and-spit-mindlessly-over-it-using-wordplays-and-analogies-that-are-neither-clever-nor-original rapstar. Granted, there are some new quality acts that surface, but usually they are lost in the muck that is uniformity.

But I digress.

The point is we love new artists. More importantly, we love talented artists. Talented, new artists. What a lovely transition. Allow me to introduce you to Lucy Stone. She’s got something you can’t fake – a voice. Her recently released EP, titled Would You?, features three tracks that allow her to flaunt her abilities over pleasant guitar, bass, and drum support. Currently a sophomore at Drexel University, improvement is the only viable route for Lucy. A couple members of the band [Wild Rompit] are supporting her both instrumentally and in production. With their assistance and Lucy’s striking vocals, success is inevitable. Lucy Stone is offering the EP for free download over at her [bandcamp]. - This Bonus Track


"Out of Time"

Looks like we have some sleeper talent right here. Lucy Stone is a product of Philadelphia, currently a student in the music program at Drexel University. First thing’s first — she’s got the name to succeed. Lucy Stone is the quintessential name for musical success; you really can’t get much better. On top of that, she’s got the vocal talent. Start up “Out Of Time” and you’ll notice it’s on full display throughout — just raw vocal skills. With a jazz-infused bassline, a refreshingly unique hook, and a name like Lucy Stone, this track deserves more than your attention. - The Chuckness


"Get to know singer-songwriter Lucy Stone"

Singer-songwriter Lucy Stone recently came to our attention with a wonderful three-song EP. Excellently arranged, these pop songs bring to mind the work of Natalie Merchant and Paula Cole, and Lucy has a very confident and strong pop singing style. Currently a sophomore at Drexel University where she is in the music industry program, Lucy grew up just outside of Philadelphia in Wyndmoor. In January, 2010, she released the Small Treasures EP. These new songs were recorded at Drexel’s Mad Dragon studios with Brandon Bost, Zack Weinstein, Sean Donaghy and Paul Impellizeri. She’s continuing to work on new material and has a show coming up on April 24th at Dobbs. Below, stream three recent songs from a very promising up and coming artist. - XPN - The Key

Bio

Though you may be hearing her name for the first time, Lucy Stone has a voice thats hard to forget. A Philadelphia native, the 20 year-old songstress has already dedicated herself to more projects than a person has fingers. Picking up the guitar at an early age, Lucy was performing original compositions by 12, and teaching voice lessons by 16, constantly forming new groups in which to experiment with different musical styles. Having opened for national acts such as The Dirty Projectors, Cymbals Eat Guitars, B.o.B and Major Lazer, the young college student has just finished working with multi-platinum recording artist Rusted Root on their upcoming album.

Transitioning from a multi-band repertoire to her newly formed solo project, Lucy released her first EP, Would You? in late April. Showcasing a unique lyrical style, the songs are intricately crafted, and were recorded in West Philadelphia by Brandon Bost, Paul Impellizeri, Isaac Louis and Sean Donaghy, the current members of the band. With a variety of folk-inspired harmonies and re-vamped vintage guitar tones, the bass and drums drive the arrangements, tastefully borrowing a 60s pop sensibility that defines the blues-based indie-pop band.

Those unfamiliar with her previous work have cited her as sleeper talent, with the name to succeed, claiming that her song Out of Time deserves more than your attention for its refreshingly unique hook and raw vocal skills. Also piquing the interest of several music blogs, Bruce Warren, program director at XPN, calls Lucy a very promising up and coming artist, whose wonderful three-song EP is excellently arranged, these pop songs bring to mind the work of Natalie Merchant and Paula Cole.

Since the EPs release, Lucy was named Philadelphias Artist of the Month by Deli Magazine, and has revisited venues such as The North Star Bar and World Caf Live Downstairs with her newly structured band. With several festival appearances scheduled this summer, Lucy is set to announce the dates for their September tour within the next few weeks.
