Lucie Tiger’s songs are classic country-rock with a modern voice, coloured with a hefty dose of good old Americana charm and subtle hallmarks of the Blues.

Clearly, you’re loving flamin' haired country-rocker, Lucie Tiger’s latest track, Right Next To You – as it has hit the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart – and rightly so! We deemed the feel-good, catchy tune as our Song of the Day earlier this year, and now we’re elated to be able to bring you the music video in this exclusive premiere.

Lucie’s own brand of country rock celebrates the sense of freedom from a life on the road and her latest music video gives us a taste of travelling through the ‘wild west’ of America and the magnificence of Red Rock Canyon in Nevada and the Painted Desert in New Mexico. The music video also features Casa Escondida, up in the wilds of Chimayo near Santa Fe in New Mexico, plus road-trip video of Lucie’s recent travels across America. 

Lucie says, "Being able to film the music video for Right Next To You on location in New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada was incredible – I was able to see the lyrics I'd written during lockdown in the hopes of one day seeing the desert in the USA come to life in front of me." 

Recorded across two continents due to the pandemic, Lucie worked with the same crew as her previous EP, Gasoline. Produced by John Gifford III and mastered by Don Srygley in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the self-penned single features Bob Wray on bass, Will McFarlane on lead guitar and slide, Justin Holder on drums and Lucie on vocals and acoustic guitar.

She says of Right Next To You, “I absolutely love this song. It always puts me in a good mood when I listen to it or when I play it. I hope it does the same for you.”

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, channeling 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. Lucie’s heading back to the US in October 2022 for the Muscle Shoals Songwriters Festival and to complete her Muscle Shoals album. Her latest album, Alabama Highway reached #14 on the ARIA Country Albums chart.
