Bonfires In Silver City is the stunning new album from acclaimed Australian songwriter Lucie Thorne.
Steeped in that striking spaciousness and sensuality for which Thorne’s work has become so renowned, Bonfires In Silver City encompasses a remarkable breadth of feeling and flavour. From the shimmering, wide-open beauty of Big News to the groove of Till The Season; from the surging swell of Great Wave to the perfectly matched duet (and co-write) with soul- treasure Jo Jo Smith on Sweet Turnaround, Bonfires In Silver City is an arrestingly assured collection from one of our finest song-poets.
Most of these songs were written whilst on the road, over the past two years of almost constant touring (throughout Australia and Europe) since the release of her last album, Black Across the Field. Evocative songs brewed over this nomadic time, during which Thorne has only occasionally retreated back to that sweet old country cottage by the Tantawangalo Creek (on the far south coast of NSW) that she still calls home.
The sound of Bonfires In Silver City has grown largely out of the musical empathy and camaraderie Thorne has developed over this period with legendary drummer Hamish Stuart.
