Corinne Lucy - Black

It seems more and more common these days for young female singers to either "over sing" and lose sight of melody, or put on some kind of fake accent in a blatant parody of the popular singer of the day.

Every now and then something comes along and takes you completely by surprise. Someone with the imagination and talent to buck the trend... Enter Northampton's own Corinne Lucy...

What we have here is a glimpse into the imagination of a talented singer/songwriter. Opening with a strong rhythmic drum pattern sitting on a musical bed of sparse folk brilliance.

The song is driven by a wonderful vocal performance, complete with layer upon layer of swirling, cascading harmony lines. Almost haunting in it's complexity whilst remaining resolutely direct. Lyric and melody effortlessly blending and producing hook after hook and one of the best choruses I have ever heard. FACT.

Corinne is certainly a force to be reckoned with. A modern day troubadour with old fashioned musical values and, based on what I have heard so far, a name to look out for.

Check her out for yourselves...

  1. Yup, I've been having my eyes on Corinne for about a year now and every times she uploads a new song to her youtube channel, my respect for her brilliance only grows. If her talent has reached me here in Brazil, it's safe to say she is conquering the world!
