Indie folk songstress Lucette will capture your heart with her gentle voice, both beautiful and haunting. Releasing her debut album, Black Is the Color, just over four months ago, the collection was produced and recorded by the acclaimed Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and is quickly approaching one million total plays on Spotify. In March 2015, Lucette will make her South by Southwest debut in Austin, TX with an official showcase and multiple appearances lined up. She will continue to tour throughout the States and Canada. 2014 saw Lucette taking to the road with Joe Ely, as well as Mason Jennings, Nikki Lane, David Ramirez and Jim Lauderdale. She ended the year as direct support on Sturgill Simpson’s nearly sold-out fall tour. Full of emotion, her performances take audiences back to the days when artists such as Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Loretta Lynn dominated the airwaves.
Amor Kismet recently won #FlashUnsigned, a Twitter competition hosted by Bill Werde (Billboard, Rolling Stone) to spotlight unsigned acts. He commented, “Three gorgeous sisters sing like angels with ton of personality. Unsigned? Not for long…Thank me from the stage when you win your first Grammy.” Since then, the industry has taken notice. BET named Amor Kismet as one of the most promising new acts in music and selected them to perform at this year’s BET Experience. Shortly after, the girls made their NYC debut at the legendary SOB’s. Amor Kismet is ready to give people a taste of their unique sound, which combines pop, R&B, neosoul, dance, and world music influences. The Love EP marks their first release and all four songs were co-written by the girls and Michael Dean, and produced by Bill Zimmerman.
