“Beautiful voice, her original material is distinctive and stylish” (Sara Colman) – Lucinda is a jazz vocalist and composer. Lucinda started her musical career at The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford where she studied for a Higher Diploma in Music Performance. It was here that she joined the ACM Gospel choir and she sung backing vocals with names such as Labrinth, Alexandra Burke and Stacey Soloman.
Lucinda has performed at the FA Cup final, The London 2012 Olympics and had the honour of singing for the Queen at the Windsor Royal Tattoo. She also studied Jazz vocals at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
In 2016 Lucinda released an extended EP entitled ‘Walking Blind’. This featured BBC Radio 3 DJ and multi-talented musician Soweto Kinch. Lucinda has played at some of the country’s leading festivals and venues, including Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Mostly Jazz and Funk, Bedford River Festival, Zero Degrees Festival, Symphony Hall Foyer Birmingham, Piano Bar Soho and The Hare and Hounds.
Lucinda’s music is firmly rooted in jazz but equally evident is her love for soul and improvisation. In December 2020 Lucinda released her album ‘I get along’.
