Though the story of their inception may read like a Hollywood script, the music of Toronto indie artists Hey Lucy! is anything but predictable.
It all started in 2007 with a classic case of “boy meets girl”. Band founders Lucy Conte and Guy Fogel met through mutual friends at a party where they began discussing their musical interests. Soon afterward, she was singing backup vocals in his band, A Lounge Supreme.
The two decided to splinter from the group and started their own acoustic folk duo act, teaming up with various local artists along the way under the name, Lucid.
In 2012, long-time friend Brian Li, whom Guy had previously played with in a band called, The Makeshifts, joined the duo and Hey Lucy! was born.
Many have tried to define the style of this enigmatic trio, but with influences in pop, folk, rock, jazz and funk – these cats are hard to pin down. None the less, their diverse style and high energy has met with wide audience appeal.
Hey Lucy! is currently working on their soon-to-be-released, yet untitled, electric album which was partially recorded in Toronto’s acclaimed Revolution Recording studio.
