Cam writes country music to tell the truth, especially truths that help women understand themselves. With a degree in psychology that’s paired with her natural wit and indelible passion, Cam has built a platform of transparent and culturally relevant conversations. Her outspokenness about the gender disparity in country music has presented her with opportunities to cultivate change and direct meaningful discussions on industry panels, task forces and on country music boards.
The proof of Cam’s eccentric candor is supported in her latest release – the brazen, bold song, “Diane,” which is the lead single off her forthcoming sophomore release. Never one to shy around from the hard conversations and topics, the GRAMMY®-nominated artist brings to focus the realities of cheating in the driving, tempo-rich song, offering a redemptive opportunity that unites women rather than pit them against each other. And there’s no question about it – people are listening. In just a few short months, “Diane” has ignited quite the wildfire, making a multi-week residency on Spotify’s Viral 50 USA Chart, breaking into the Top 15 on the iTunes US Country Charts and peaking at #1 on the iTunes UK Country Charts. In addition to performing the song
on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Good Morning America and American Idol, “Diane” was recently expedited on BBC Radio 2’s A-List in the UK and has topped multiple best-of lists including Best Songs (all-genre) of 2017 by NPR, #3 on the 25 Best Country Songs of 2017 by Rolling Stone Country and #2 on the Top 10 Country Songs of 2018 by Taste Of Country.
Along with working on her upcoming album, Cam co-wrote the song, “Palace” off Sam Smith’s latest album, The Thrill Of It All. The song, which was co-written with Smith and Tyler Johnson, has Cam contributing background vocals and electric guitar to the track, and was featured in the 2017 Holiday commercial for Apple. This Spring, Cam joined Smith on stage for “Palace” during all four nights of his sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena. Smith is among the impressive list of music superstars that Cam has shared the stage with in the last couple years. Others include Harry Styles at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill on their blockbuster Soul2Soul Tour and George Strait during his 2017 residency tour at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The momentum continues to build since the release of Cam’s debut album Untamed. The breakout record debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with the year’s best first-week album sales by a debut country artist. Untamed included Cam’s first Platinum record and #1 country single, “Burning House.” The massive success of “Burning House” garnered Cam multiple GRAMMY®, ACM, CMA, CMT and American Music Awards nominations. To date, “Burning House” is still the most-downloaded song by a female country artist since 2015. Produced by GRAMMY-winning Producer of the Year Jeff Bhasker (Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars) and multiple-GRAMMY nominee Tyler Johnson (Harry Styles, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran), Untamed was met with widespread critical acclaim from The New York Times to Entertainment Weekly, PEOPLE and Associated Press. Since its release, Cam – who co-wrote each of her 11 debut album tracks – has appeared on national TV programs including Today, CBS This Morning, The Voice, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Talk, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, LIVE with Kelly, The Grammys, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, The 10th ACM Honors CBS special with Alicia Keys and CMT Crossroads with Smokey Robinson and many others.
Born in the UK and raised part of her life in New Zealand by her Kiwi dad and Scottish mother, Lucie Silvas grew up listening to her parents favourites from Ray Charles to Nat King Cole to James Taylor and Roberta Flack. She started playing the piano and writing songs at age 10 but wasn't exposed to the music industry until she was 17 when she went out on the road as a backing singer for British singer/songwriter Judie Tzuke.
A few years later she released her debut album on Mercury Records, "Breathe In," and toured extensively around Europe for the following years with both her debut and second album. She went on to sell well over a million albums in Europe, alone. Lucie worked and toured with many artists throughout Europe including the likes of Elton John, Jamie Cullum, Macy Gray, and Jamiroquai.
After achieving massive success for both her own music as well as songs she had written for other artists, Lucie packed up and moved to Nashville, TN. where she has now written and performed with some of the biggest and the best in their fields. Still without having released a single recording yet in the U.S., she started sowing the seeds of this new chapter and hit the road with a vast array of artists ranging from Kasey Musgraves to Tom Jones (yes, Tom Jones) to Daughtry to James Bey and shared the stage at Bonnaroo with Skrillex and Ms. Lauryn Hill. She will also be direct support on the road this coming Fall for Little Big Town.
Lucie has just released her long-awaited and much anticipated album, “Letters To Ghosts” for Caroline Records. This was a fully self-financed endeavor and one that came from sheer passion, drive and a slew of generosity and favors from some of the greatest players in and out of the Nashville market who all saw the raw talent and amazing body of work in the making. The album features the first hit, “Letters To Ghosts,” which continues to rear its head at new radio stations each week all over the country. All the songs on the album were co-written and co-produced by Lucie with several tracks already having been licensed for major network television.
Along with the release of this album, Lucie wrote and produced the first two storyline videos – “Letters To Ghosts” and “Villain” – which will lead into a third video, “Smoke,” that will close the book on this much lauded trilogy.
She recently received massive accolades for her acclaimed performance on BBC Sessions “60th Anniversary of Elvis Presley’s Sun Sessions.” Her live show continues to wow critics and fans alike and will propel her to stay out on the road through all of next year supporting this incredible first U.S. release.
