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!
Thanks to The North Bay Bohemian and San Francisco Chronicle’s Datebook for the feature photos in advance of my concert at Studio 55 Marin. It was a great show! Here is a video of the closing song ‘Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone’ off my new album ‘Love, Hope & Tyranny’ slotted for release in early 2015.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lucia Comnes is an American singer, songwriter, fiddler and guitarist with a ‘singular voice’ (SF Chronicle) whose roots music crosses genres of Americana, Folk, Irish, Bluegrass & Rock. She writes powerful melodies with forceful, earthy lyrics that reflect her connection to the elements.
Her ability to seamlessly blend different styles results in music that draws from the past but is refreshingly contemporary. Lucia’s fiddling is a powerful and emotional expression of her musical vision – a vision that demonstrates that she isn’t afraid to take chances. Her voice, crystal clear but with a hint of mystery, was described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “singular… embedded with soul and spirit.”
