Lucid - Rue
Lucid is the latest single from the incredibly inventive and talented singer/songwriter Rue.
In 2017 Rue received rave reviews for her debut EP Blinkers; the success of the release led to a packed diary and support slots to the likes of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. This young Cornish woman has since forged her way through to become a leading light on the Nu Soul and Jazz scene in the South West. The last three years have given Rue the opportunity to fine tune her performing skills with headline slots at festivals and venues across the country; during lock down Rue swapped the main stages for live streaming performances from home.
Rue’s writing skills are beyond doubt and her vocal range on Lucid takes her way beyond anything she has previously brought us. Surrounding herself with top quality musicians, Rue’s band join her on Lucid with Barnaby Ray on drums, Jake Galvin on bass guitar and Martin Jenkins on a variety of keys. An instrumental break half way through Lucid allows the combined musicianship to shine and the track ends perfectly on piano.
Music genres constantly evolve and the fusion of Nu Soul and Jazz has become cool as a new generation brings a breath of fresh air to the scene. Rue’s latest release will ensure her name remains high on the wanted list when festival organisers and venue owners are finally released from the shackles of lock down.
