  • Lucie Silvas is simply the best!

    There are several types of music. Actually dozens. But one kind of music is called must-have. You must have at least one disc of this kind, in your collection. "Breathe In" of Lucie is one very good example.

    Quality. Voice. Vocal abilities. Confidence. Strength. Not every singer has this characteristics. Lucie Silvas has. She worked hard over five years in order to get into the industry. She didn't win any Pop-Idol show on TV, she wasn't recognized by a famous manager of record company. She made it herself.

    Lucie's first try wasn't that good. MTV and other major market forces don't let young artists show what they have. They have to fight for it. So she took several years of silence, working with known artists as Macy Gray and Rachel Stevens. She has become more adult, more understanding. And with those abilities, she found her path in the industry.

    Lucie's debut album is no less then excellent. Her voice fits together into her own music. She makes perfect music. Even when she took Metallica's Hit, "Nothing Else Matters", she made it even better. Its new melody screams out, "Why haven't no-one taught about it before?"

    Singles as "What You're Made Of" and "Don't Look Back" proves her to be a star. She's going to be a star for a long time, so you better get yourself her album, before you'll regret it.moreless
