'Burn It Down' is out now!
Self-penned and produced by John Gifford III, the track shows another side of her songwriting. In a fired-up departure from her familiar themes, Burn It Down was prompted by events during the pandemic and inspired by Miranda Lambert’s Kerosene.
Lucie says, “The song, Burn It Down, is my message to anyone who wants to tear me down, try to cheat their way forward or think their bad behaviour is okay. If you think you can get away with any of that bad behaviour, you’re gonna have ‘Burn It Down’ Lucie Tiger to contend with!”
Filmed by Jay Seeney, the music video, which premieres today exclusively on Countrytown, features a red truck, a bonfire and some of Jay’s parents’ cows.
“We wanted to really show another side of me in the video and I think we achieved it. It’s definitely a sexier side of me and also a bit more intense for sure! But the song is as well, and it was important to be able to deliver the message of the song the right way,” Lucie says. "We wanted to go big or go home and we were able to borrow what must be the biggest red pickup truck in Australia from a friend of ours for the video."
“I was so lucky to be able to work again with Jay Seeney who always does such an amazing job. I literally gave him three concepts - red, fire and dramatic - and we nailed it!" she adds. "One thing I love about the video, that you can sort of see but is more of a behind the scenes thing, is we lit a bonfire on his parents’ property, and it was quite a chilly day. All of his parents’ cows and their calves all came up to watch which was really sweet!”

Born and raised in the Sydney region, Lucie grew up listening to 1970s rock and Southern artists like The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, The Rolling Stones etc. during long family road trips. She turned those childhood memories into a career, channelling that classic sound with a fresh feel. Her heavy influences include The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd as well as more modern touches of RaeLynn, Jason Isbell and Miranda Lambert.
She released her debut self-titled EP in 2018, Apple Tree in 2019 and Gasoline in 2020. Tracks from the latter have also been played on over 40 Country radio stations in the USA. Lucie tasted success with her acclaimed rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s The Wind Cries Mary, which reached No. 4 on the AMRAP charts. She was later nominated for three Australian Songwriters Association (ASA) awards for ‘Songwriting Excellence’ in 2020.
2021 was a monumental year, with Gasoline winning the Tamworth Songwriters Association award for ‘Best Country Blues Song’ in January 2021 and her 3 singles reaching the Countrytown Hot 50 Chart – Found My Home #20, Do Me Right #36 and Midnight Goodbye #34.
In April 2022, Lucie recorded six songs in Muscle Shoals, an album at Sun Studio, Memphis, and was selected to play a Songwriters Showcase in Nashville.
