My new album, ‘Love, Hope & Tyranny’, is slotted for release in early 2015. The album features 13 of my new original songs, was produced by Jeffrey Wood (Luka Bloom, Penelope Houston) & Gawain Mathews and recorded/mixed at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California. It was funded in part by many supporters via the platform PledgeMusic. A part of the albums proceeds will be donated to the STRAW Project to help kids plant thousands of trees every year.

“Lucia Comnes is a singer, songwriter, fiddler & guitarist with a ‘singular voice’ (SF Chronicle) and ‘a powerful imagination’ (C. Poling) whose atmospheric roots music crosses genres of Americana, folk, Celtic, bluegrass & alternative.”

Track 1 off my new album ‘Love, Hope & Tyranny’ was recognized today by the Dallas Songwriters Association Song Contest. I submitted the song in the Americana category. Not only did the song win FIRST PLACE in the AMERICANA category, but it won the single GRAND PRIZE for best song in all categories. What an honor!
