About AUGUST: Lucie Thorne + Dr Desoto
Lauded for writing “some of the most simple and beautiful songs you will hear” (The Age), Lucie Thorne has earned her place as one of Australia’s most striking contemporary songsmiths. With eleven releases to her name – including her latest LP Everything Sings Tonight – and a prodigious touring schedule, Lucie Thorne continues to carve out an extraordinary creative career.
"Thorne’s powerful intimacy is embedded in each song. At times stylistically similar to the late Chris Whitley… Thorne has breathed in love and life and returns both as art. Hers is a poetic gift; Bonfires is a river of sound, its currents best revealed the more deeply you listen." [The Age]
From Adelaide, South Australia - 'Doctor DeSoto' unites experienced songwriters Mikey Green (multiple ARIA Award winners 'The Audreys'), Dave Pagano ('Gone To Earth'), Mark Lockwood ('The Milk'), and Mel Horsman ('The Martial Hearts', 'Highway 31').
Acoustic, tumbleweed tunes from the edge of town, alongside Polaroid pop with infectious vintage beats.
Call it what you will -
"The music explores a range of contemporary styles, yet there is this pervading sense of nostalgia – you feel that this is a band that has the ability to encompass all the good things about the sounds of another era in rock and roll. …. with instant likeability" - Wirra Creek Music
