Watch List: Fall For Lindsay Lucas' Soul-Soothing Charm
At times, it can seem as if life's quotidian grind lays heavily on the heart and mind. If the unending hurly-burly of the everyday scramble has you feeling the weight, then Lindsay Lucas has just the thing to salve your weary soul. Conjuring a lush musical vibe that draws on soul music's extended family of genres, Lucas infuses the jazzy hues and mellifluously smoky sensitivity of her warmly inviting vocal tone with the kind of allure and sensuality that will soon have you happily lost in her enchanting aura.
Quickly disarming at first listen with the honeyed polish and sophistication of her lovingly crafted musical sensibility, her 'sweet n' savory' soul sound - a seamless blend of neo-soul, future-soul, reggae, hip-hop and jazz - alights on the ear with a velvet, synapse-soothing charm. Drawing lyrical inspiration from the the giddy, tumultuous emotion that comes with love's irresistible, yet often confusing, gravity, she recently released her 'The Rüby Valdez' EP; here, accompanied by The Ruby Valdez, she showcases the feel-good delight of her soul-quieting vibe with live renditions of 'Déjà vu' and 'Unrequited Love' at the The Record Company in Boston.
