NATALIE LUCASSIAN w/ Michelle Lukezic & Ashley Peacock
May 5 | 7:00 pm-9:00 pm$10
Natalie Lucassian is at once haunting and earth bound. She finesses between worlds, the biggest personality in the room and also your most trusted friend. Sonically, Natalie harkens to vintage soul while plotting a course for innovative, alternative edge. She is Amy Winehouse reincarnated as Adele’s indie rock little sister. Hopelessly in love with her hometown of Detroit, Natalie’s unique mixture of commercial accesibility and unsettlingly authentic lyrics are the perfect seeds to plant in the fertile soil of a city poised to model for the entire world what powerful hope arrives when the reassuring familar is clothed in a captivating mystery.
Upending conventional singer songwriter approaches, Michelle Lukezic writes and performs using a bass guitar. The breadth of driving chords and harmonies that billow from her bass gives both compliment and counter for her tender, often confessional, vocals. Michelle’s solo incarnation offers a sonic fullness that many bands would swoon over, while still making you feel like it’s just you and her alone in the room… as serious as she is playful.
Hailing from Flint, MI, Ashley Peacock has a blue collar work ethic, but the soul of a traveling dreamer. He saw success as a touring Michigan in the early 2000’s, and then traded the stage for the studio settling into the Cincinnati music scene as a producer until he moved home in 2014. Evolving a production career into full artist development, Ashley still plays occasionally but focuses on the emerging artists he currently manages. Sonically, Ashley has honed a magnificent identity crisis over the years, landing somewhere between Radiohead and Ryan Adams.
