Ahead of her show at Omeara, Lucy Dacus takes us on the road of her current tour.
After the release of her excellent second album Historian – released last month by Matador – Lucy Dacus is currently on the road. The 22-year-old singer/songwriter from Richmond, Virginia goes deeper on her second record, mixing catchy hooks with intricate, story-centred lyricism, showing her growth as an artist since her debut in 2016 with first album No Burden.
We last spoke to Lucy a couple of months ago, where she shared some of her favourite tracks that influenced the new record. Now, ahead of her sold-out headline show tonight at Omeara, we’re happy to share this photo diary Lucy made for us on her recent tour dates in the US, Canada and here in the UK.
Barren, icy highway on the way from Omaha, Nebraska to Minneapolis, Minnesota. The first week of spring…
Nick Offerman introduced us at SXSW. He compared my voice to having gravy dripped on his face – an experience that would’ve seemed like hyperbole from anyone other than him.
Quick stop by Prada Marfa, a high fashion art joke in the middle of the Texas desert. You can’t enter and the shoes and bags inside have been the same for years.
Took a tour of Mike Mogis’ studio in Omaha. Very cool space and extremely nice guy.
My sweet mom drove all the way from Richmond, Virginia to Chicago, Illinois to give me an Easter basket for Easter. Including this new friend which we named Lil Bun.
Lil Bun is named after Little Dog, the guardian angel of our tour! Little Dog tours with And The Kids who opened for us in the US.
Here’s And The Kids shredding in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at Horseshoe Tavern.
I just thought this park in Vancouver had the best name.
And then we made our way to beautiful, sunny England! I’ve only ever been to London when there are blue skies and sunshine. I’ve also only been to LA when it’s rainy and grey.
Our drummer Ricardo driving on the left side of the road! (Very trippy to us, probably not a very interesting photo to someone who lives in the UK.)
Our bassist Austin taking it real easy during soundcheck in Glasgow.
Our guitarist Jacob looking doofy next to these flowers that look like fried eggs.
