C2C Social returns this year at the Brooklyn Bowl, following the success of last year’s show which featured Sugarland front man Kristian Bush. This year, the event will take place on Saturday 10th September, doors opening at 6pm.
The headliner for this year’s event will be British singer songwriter Lucie Silvas! 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.
Last September, Lucie released her album ‘Letters To Ghosts’ after 3 years of writing and recording in Nashville, and the album received rave reviews. 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.
The C2C Social event will also feature a number of special guests. Tickets will be available from axs.com on Friday 10th June at 10am.
