About Anoushka Lucas
Anoushka Lucas is a composer, theatre maker and jazz singer from London. Described as a “raw, natural talent” by Neil Cowley and “an exceptional voice and a great songwriter” by Jamie Cullum, Anoushka’s first breakthrough came when she won the 2013 Jazz FM ‘opening act’ competition to open the first Love Supreme Festival. In early 2014 she met producer Martin Terefe. Along with drummer Karl Brazil and keyboard-player Glen Scott, Anoushka and Martin began writing and recording her debut album together. They crafted a new sound, much wider and experimental than her solo material that effortlessly combines jazz, blues and pop into an unearthly and unique sound. After four long years the resulting album “Dark Soul” isan exploration of all facets of a relationship. Her experiences create an unflinching autobiographical honesty in her music but this, combined with a sensitive warmth and her stinging sense of humour peppering her concerts, makes for a performative experience that will make you laugh and cry in equal measure. Lucas’ incredible live band band (Ben Reed, Joseph Costi and Yusuf Ahmed) will be treating the Underbelly audience to a scintillating evening of stunning jazz, hilarious anecdotes and a night to remember from one of the “best songwriters of her generation”.
