We try to uncover music that speaks to us. Music that draws you in with something special. Well, Luci is something special. The trio of McKail Seely, Ashley Maietta and Ariana Tibi have a magical and spontaneous beginning that resulted in a funky, unique blend of folk, country, blues and R&B. The ladies met for the first time in March 2015 in a North Hollywood apartment with sleeping roommates in the next room. Their first foray singing harmonies showed their instant chemistry and they decided, then and there, to start this project coming up with the band name, logo and first track.
The Los Angeles-based Luci realized that their harmonies are what set them apart from everyone else and they absolutely play it up on their latest single, “Can’t Be Alone With You”. Now, let’s not ignore the musicianship of the track just because of the seductive and ensnaring vocals. The bluesy, Americana melody and pure, creative songwriting ability go beyond the average pop song. It is complex and original.
The trio, on describing their sound, said, “If The Eagles and Destiny’s Child came together to have a baby, and that child spent many weekends with Auntie Dixie Chicks and Uncle Allen Stone, it would have been called Luci.”
Honestly, there probably is not a better description of their sound than that. The track is completely engaging and exactly what music needs right now. Luci comes together with thoughtfulness and an unique perspective on what music could be and backs it up with serious talent. And with it only be a single, there is surely more to come from the trio. Do not miss this track.
