The National Music Centre is pleased to present Lucette with opener Hermitess.
Edmonton-bred alt-pop singer-songwriter Lucette has been called the country-folk counterpart to Lana Del Rey’s retro-cool vibe by the Edmonton Journal. She’s toured with country legends Joe Ely and Sturgill Simpson, roots-rocker Alejandro Escovedo, and many among Americana’s next wave of artists, including Mason Jennings and David Ramirez. With her debut release, “Black is the Color,” racking up over five million Spotify streams and single “Bobby Reid” garnering over 3 million and counting, Lucette is indeed an artist on the rise and one to watch.
Hermitess is the solo project of songwriter and harpist Jennifer Crighton (also of Devonian Gardens). Stripping back the performance to a harp and a circle of women’s voices, the Hermitess is an inquisitive, contrary, wounded, wise and ever dreaming incantation, or what Sled Island has described as “spiritual elevation at its finest.”
