Luciar is an edgy singer/songwriter, with witty, passionate lyrics and memorable melodies. She’ll entertain you on the piano, or her tiny ukulele. Her voice has been likened to the jazzy tones of Ella Fitzgerald and the cooing sounds of Tori Amos.
2011 was a busy year for Luciar, performing in cities around the country, including Los Angeles, Austin and Philadelphia. She is gearing up for her 3rd release, Feeling A Little Emo. Her single, “Only Love” was released on the GoGirlsMusicFest 2011 CD.
“I fully believe that music is my native language and everyone can understand it. I do it because it’s a wonderful way to release all of the emotion in the world—anxieties, insecurities, joy, love. I want to remind people to let it out. Let it all out.”

Luciar’s debut album "Rules of the Game," released in 2000 was warmly received and she soon found herself opening for Seal at Jones Beach Amphitheater backed by a band trio of drums, bass and guitars. Rules of the Game showcased her pop-rock and world music sensibilities. After some light touring, and notable accolades, (from Billboard Songwriting Contest and American Songwriting Contest, to name a few), she began her path as a solo artist.
In May 2006, she released "Skin," telling a story of a relationship lost and the journey to healing. Skin is a sparse arrangement of piano and voice, with occasional bouts of drums & bass. With this album, Luciar rediscovered her love for production and engineering. She setup her studio at home, recorded vocals and mixed the entire album.
Luciar is a musical moodster, you’re never quite sure what she’s going to do next…it makes you want to stick around to find out. Look out for Feeling A Little Emo on iTunes and Amazon.com, on October 2, 2012.
