Dark River (out 2/26/21) is the evocative new album from Lydia Luce, a Nashville based singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist adeptly blending spellbinding strings, warm guitar tones and dream-like piano to create a sophisticated soundtrack that expands across vintage pop, contemporary classical, psychedelic folk and indie rock.
Produced by Jordan Lehining, Dark River showcases Luce’s hypnotic vocals, which share poignant tales of loneliness, isolation and clarity of mind. Her heart-rending personal stories reflect on tumultuous relationships, risky solo travel trips and draw on the experience of surviving the Nashville March Tornado after it ripped through her home in East Nashville. Luce grew up in a strict musical household where her mother was a professional conductor and did not present learning the violin as a choice. From six years old she excelled in numerous philharmonics but knew her path was not that of a professional classical musician. Luce has since found her way back to orchestral music, leading Lockeland Strings, a community arts organization and a showcase of local artists accompanied by string quartet arrangements, alongside performances of new contemporary classical pieces from local composers.
