ucia’s story begins in 2011, at 17 years old, on the small balcony of her parents’ apartment, with a guitar, a digital camera and a strong will to get noticed by her favorite local band – The MOOoD. She is about to record a cover, nothing fancy, no special effects, and post it on their Facebook page, they are going to like it and that will be it.
he won’t give up though and, a few months later, there it is: Lucia’s second attempt, but this time just a bit different. The balcony and the digital camera are still there, but this time she has a keyboard instead of a guitar. She is about to record a cover of “Silence” and post it again on their Facebook page. This time around, though, they are going to love it and shoot a video for it. A video that will not be fancy, will not have any special effects, but that will go viral and reach 1 million views in just a few months.
contract with Romanian label Global Records followed, then new songs and finally the first live shows. Her live debut took place at the 2012 edition of Summer Well festival in Bucharest on a stage of her own, among headliners such as Hurts and The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. Since then, with each new live appearance and each new single, Lucia carved step by step a niche of her own, polishing her particular brand of frail, soulful but driven indie/pop into something astonishing.
ow, Lucia is promoting her debut album, “Silence”, released in late 2015. Her most recent video, “Strong”, was shot at the famous Bran Castle in Transylvania.
