Listen: Luci “Ashes”

Luci is the magical result of a spontaneous session between three songwriters. If The Eagles and Destiny’s Child came together to have a baby, and that child spent many weekends with Auntie Dixie Chicks and Uncle Allen Stone, it would have been called Luci. When McKail, Ariana and Ashley got together for the first time on March 12th, 2015, it was in the living room of a North Hollywood apartment with roommates sleeping in the next room over. The moment they sang their first extremely quiet harmony together, they knew this was a musical bond that couldn’t be ignored. That evening they not only decided to continue as a group, but even came up with their name, logo, and first song.

Although their sound is Folk/Pop based, the Luci Ladies have always had a passion for the Blues, Soul, and Jazz, three styles that appear in their writing. Through their combination of genres and individual styles, the result has allowed three independent and stylistically different women to come together to form a unique blend; a blend that embraces their strengths and differences and morphs them all into a cohesive, mainstream sound.

The Luci Ladies have booked various venues around LA and Southern California (i.e. The Troubadour, The Hotel Cafe, The House of Blues, Room 5, The Federal, Los Globos) and Nashville (i.e. The Listening Room, The Bluebird, The Country) and continue to write. They released their first live EP, “Live From 201” in February of 2016 and their first studio single, “Can’t Be Alone With You” in July. They are currently recording for their debut album and will be releasing a single in August of 2018.
