Biography

Saint Lu is like a hurricane and has a voice like the best singers in the big days of Rock'n Roll. SAINT LU is refreshingly modern and brings passion back into music. While other contemporary singers rely on mainstream pop or pretentious phrasing alone SAINT LU offers a powerful and rough voice straight from her guts: Pure and real, outright and outspoken. Songs like Don't Miss Your Own Life and Love Song make the listener catch his breath and open his ears. Rock as rock can!

Her influences can easily be detected: Led Zeppelin, Big Mama Thornton, Janis Jopin, and Jimi Hendrix – whom LU rightly counts as one of the real great singers. "I am not really into vocal embellishments. They are like punctuation marks. For me it is important that the vocals narrate the story of the song – and Jimi was a master in that", says SAINT LU. Her songs are developed in a similarly original way – usually in jam sessions. She starts improvising over a guitar riff until the lyrics come naturally. “I just start singing and eventually the word fragments start making sense. There is always something rolling around in my subconscious.”
