Featured: Lucie Thorne - Bonfires In Silver City (Little Secret)
'Bonfires In Silver City' is the stunning new album from acclaimed Australian songwriter Lucie Thorne. Steeped in that striking spaciousness and sensuality for which Thorne's work has become so renowned. 'Bonfires In Silver City' encompasses a remarkable breadth of feeling and flavour and is an arrestingly assured collection from one of our finest song-poets.
Lucie's last album, 'Black Across The Field' (2009) garnered acclaim from leading critics, including being awarded 'Best Roots Album of 2009' by The Sydney Morning Herald, was short listed for the prestigious Australian Music Prize, and earned her a place as one of Australia's most distinctive contemporary songwriters. 'Bonfires in Silver City' is an exciting development from this remarkable musician who has clearly hit her stride.
Most of these songs were written whilst on the road, over the past two years of almost constant touring. Evocative songs brewed over this nomadic time, during which Lucie has only occasionally retreated back to her country cottage by the Tantawangalo Creek that she still calls home.
