Drawing musical inspiration from her 5 years living in New Zealand, Lucie Hill has developed a songwriting style that captivates the listener, which paired with her emotive vocal has gained her traction and respect from the likes of steve lamacq at BBC 6 music and Bob Harris at BBC Radio 2, being compared to talents such as Laura Marling, chrissie hynde & Sinead O’Connor.
Throughout her musical journey Lucie has found herself collaborating with some of New Zealand’s most celebrated musicians, including Ben Barter (Lorde’s touring drummer) who produced and co-wrote her recent single ‘Precious Time’.
‘Precious Time’ highlights the very real and current issues surrounding modern technology and social media. Born out of frustration at seeing people constantly looking down at their smartphones – whilst crossing roads; whilst in someone’s company; whilst dancing, Lucie paints the picture of a delicate balance between staying connected with modern technology and losing grip of our physical relationships.
Showcased perfectly in her self-directed music video depicting a relationship between two millennials which is turning sour because one partner keeps checking her smartphone.
As the winner of Her Music PR’s Mothers in Music competition, in celebration of International Women’s Day 2019, Lucie says ‘As a mother of two young children, I want to embrace modern technology, but I am also concerned about the future of communication within our physical environment’.
