Before We Stand We Crawl
Hungry Lucy began by chance in 1998 when War-N Harrison (Fishtank No.9) was asked to contribute to a Depeche Mode tribute album. War-N asked vocalist/lyricist Christa Belle to record vocals for the song 'Blue Dress'. The couple found they worked together so well that Hungry Lucy was born. Fall of 2000 saw the release of Hungry Lucy's debut CD, 'Apparitions'. The album garnered much attention across the US and Europe for it's combination of pop song structures, trip hop grooves and Christa's haunting vocals & other-worldly lyrics. This attention of this debut CD lead to a licensing deal with Belgian label Alfa Matrix and subsequent European relase of Apparitions: Revisited in Fall of 2001. Hungry Lucy spent 2002 refining their live show and completed their next full length album entitled 'Glo'. Glo captures all the elements that Hungry Lucy are known for while continuing to explore other genres such as jazz, blues and europop. Once again, the album received critical acclaim and glowing reviews worldwide and expanded Hungry Lucy's reach to a much wider audience. In the Summer of 2003, Hungry Lucy embarked on a tour across the Western and Midwest regions of the United States. This gave people of chance to hear, as well as see, what Hungry Lucy is all about. True to form, Hungry Lucy delivered stunning performances along with synchronized video accompaniment. In Spring of 2004, it was time to head back into the studio and capture the new material Hungry Lucy had compiled over the preceding months. The result, Hungry Lucy's 3rd full-length CD, 'To Kill a King' was released in Nov. 2004 to critical acclaim from both fans and the media alike, debuting at #9 on the French Alternative Charts in January, 2005 and featured on Public Radio programs such as PRI's 'Echoes' and the X-Star Network's 'Audiosyncracies'. The album brilliantly displays Hungry Lucy's passion for musical contrast and clever songwriting for which this duo is known. April/May of 2005 saw Hungry Lucy back on the road for a 6 week coast to coast US tour including a show with Front 242. The larger crowds showed that Hungry Lucy was onto something. Later in 2005, Hungry Lucy began a weekly podcast, 'Tea with Hungry Lucy', that is a glimpse into the world of the indie duo that includes stories about their music and impromptu live performances while increasing their fanbase online. These stripped down version inspired Hungry Lucy's 4th release, the EP 'Before We Stand ... We Crawl' as well as the song 'We Won't Go'. This song was selected by author Neil Gaiman to be featured on his recent tribute CD, 'Where's Neil When You Need Him?' along side artists like Tori Amos, Rasputina, and Voltaire. Hungry Lucy has come along way since 1998 and shows no signs of slowing down. The duo embarks on their 3rd US tour in Sept/Oct of 2006.
