CD RELEASE SHOW
“An ascending folk-pop voice on the scene, Miré’s storyteller wit is well-matched with his rich, natural baritone.” — Creative Loafing, Atlanta
Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Lucas Miré returns to the Attic stage to spread his lyrical blend of folk-pop and perform selections from his April 2013 release, Following the Landslide. Armed with his acoustic guitar, a singular voice, and direct, yet clever, lyrics, Miré’s new work deals with the what Miré refers to as ‘love after love.’
“Not to get too heavy, but with the death of someone close to me and with the end of an important romantic relationship, I learned that love doesn’t stop when someone dies or something ends, and that is definitely a sentiment that bleeds into songs like ‘Gone,’ ‘ILY,’ and ‘Blue Ink.’” says Miré. “Even on the most bitter pill, ‘Blood on Your Hands,’ it’s there.”
Following the Landslide also displays the growth Miré experienced through recording and releasing his last record, Never Regret the Nights (2009), a folk-pop-flavored disc produced in six days by Grammy-winning Clay Cook (Zac Brown Band).
“Working with someone as talented and experienced as Clay really helped me gain confidence in my own songwriting, guitar-playing and singing voice, and in making Never Regret the Nights with him, I learned to trust myself and my artistic instincts,” says Miré. “It was an important creative experience that really helped me have more of a hand in the production of Following the Landslide, which resulted in a record that was a lot more intimate.”
Co-produced with Atlanta’s Brian Slusher (Slushco), Following the Landslide features a small suite of guitars, keyboards, and strings, as well as vocal collaborations with Girlyman (“ILY”), Lucy Wainwright Roche (“Blue Ink”), and Edie Carey (“Blood on Your Hands”).
Voted Best of Gay Atlanta by readers of Southern Voice and nominated for Best Male Debut at the OutMusic Awards in NYC, Miré arrived on the singer-songwriter scene with his 2005 debut, Forever’s Not As Long As It Used To Be, and has performed at Atlanta’s Gay Pride, the Atlantis Music Conference’s Odd Man Out showcase, Acousticpalooza, Red Light Cafe’s Boys’ Night Out, and more.
