|Bio||Lucinda Peters is clearly out of the ordinary. She seemed to suddenly arrive on the Sydney jazz scene, immediately lighting it up with her sensual, stop-you-dead-in-your-tracks voice and unassuming yet utterly captivating stage presence. More than just an accomplished jazz singer with a highly expressive voice and original compositions, she also accompanies herself on double bass, acoustic guitar, and piano. Her first album, "Show Me The Way to Your Heart", produced by jazz legend, Don Burrows, is a stunning debut on which she has attracted the talents of the cream of the Australian jazz scene. “.. ineffable, luxurious magic…”craig pierce, drum media. The title track features in Jane Champion's 2003 film, In the Cut. Her second album, 'Desert Stars' is another self-assured album for which she collaborated with Simon Barker, Matt McMahon and Phil Slater (Bo5N), James Muller, Sean Wayland and members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. “..highly individual music territory...” John McBeath, The Australian. Lucinda has toured both as solo artist and band leader throughout Australia also to UK, Europe and USA. She has been the recipient of a number of grants from Australia Council of the Arts and Music Touring Australia and has been invited by Austrade to perform in festivals in Japan. She recently returned to university to complete her BMus in Jazz Voice at ANU and Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where she studied with Vince Jones and Miroslav Bukovsky. With a passion for both performing and teaching she continues to teach and tour throughout Australia and overseas.
A lovely woman with a remarkably fluid guitar style, wonderful voice and a distinct humility. She played 2 quite long sets peppered with jazz, blues, classical and Brazilian styles, and is very personable to boot. With luck we'll host her again sonetime!
