“Flower children with rock ’n’ roll souls,” Beau + Luci, sisters from the swamplands of Southern Georgia, enchant audiences with hypnotizing harmonies and bluesy melodies. Growing up in Waycross, Georgia, just a few miles from the Okefenokee Swamp, their music combines the mystery and folklore of “the land of the trembling earth” with their own blend of bluesy Americana rock. Heavily influenced by the Allman Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Emmylou Harris, and Johnny Cash, with their undeniable approach to storytelling steeped in ageless spirituals, blues, and classic rock, Beau + Luci captive souls from all walks life. At the young ages of 19 and 22, raised listening to generations of diverse, legendary artists, these two sisters have cultivated their artistic skills from a vibrant and rich Georgia music culture.
Produced by Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra, Aaron Shust), Beau + Luci’s debut EP, Fire Dancer, finds the duo collaborating with a host of esteemed musicians, including guitarist Scott Sharrard and keyboardist Peter Levin (both members of the Gregg Allman Band) as well as keyboardist Rami Jaffee (best known for his work with Foo Fighters and the Wallflowers). Throughout the EP, Beau + Luci display a blend of swampy sounds and sharp songcraft honed through their near-lifelong studying of legendary musicians ranging from Led Zeppelin to Joni Mitchell to The Rolling Stones and the Arctic Monkeys. At the same time, the two channel pure passion into each track, instilling the EP with a powerful energy. “With our songwriting, our main goal is to take what’s in our heads and hearts and express it in a way that people can connect with,” says Luci. “We want to tell a story, and to be as honest as possible, to dig really deep with the hope that someone can listen and say, ‘Someone else is feeling the same thing I’m feeling—I’m not alone.’”
