For over 20 years, Lucie Blue has performed in Canada, the US, Spain, Australia and New Zealand, at various folk venues and festivals as well as women’s music festivals. In 2002 she was awarded the “Jane Schliessman Music Award” for “Outstanding Contributions to Women’s Music”.
Her name has been whispered through the cracks in the music business since her first television appearance in 1984. Since then she has shared the stage with such prominent names as Randy Newman, James Taylor, Jane Siberry, Pete Seeger, Judi Richards, Sarah McLachlan, Cris Williamson and Meg Christian to name a few.
Her whistle became a trademark and her concerts a personal experience. While one frequently finds her concert attendees buying all her music at once, and though her CD sales through the years have surpassed any independents dreams, Lucie Blue remains one of Canada’s best-kept secrets, yet her first release, “Lucie Blue Tremblay” was on the Boston Globe’s Top Ten List in 1986.
She is one of Canada’s beautiful voices and songwriters. Her music goes straight to the heart of men and women alike. Her universal theme is LOVE. Her global message is honor, strength, laughter, thought, peace and love.
Tremblay started performing when she was still a child, accompanying her mother’s five piece band as a drummer. Later she taught herself guitar, and then the piano. Her first appearance in theUnited States was at the 1985 Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival‘s Day stage singing a duet with another Canadian singer-songwriter, Ferron. Her debut album, released in 1986 by Olivia Records, was voted Top Ten Album of the Year by the Boston Globe.
