HISTORY

Glasgow born, international singer/songwriter Lucinda Sieger's career began in furniture design. While at Art College in London she founded her eleven piece band Continental Cartoon the Latin pop crossover outfit, whose members included Neil Barnes ( Leftfield), Steve Jones (A Man Called Adam), Jill Bryson (Strawberry Switchblade) and Nick Van Gelder (Jamiroquai drummer).

Lucinda produced her first single SUNSET RED (originally released 1987) on Pure Trash Records, after meeitng Plato Page (The Rain Gods) now know as Count Dubulah (Temple of Sound), which picked up plays from everyone between Tony Blackburn and Giles Peterson. On the back of this single Lucinda was invited to feature in an award winning documentary A Portrait of Great Britain produced by Turner Broadcast Productions which was syndicated across the US.

It was at Ronnie Scott's while performing with Winston Blissett and Neil Barnes that Lucinda was heard by dance act Congress (1991) and her subsequent vocal version of their track 40 MILES went straight to Number One in the dance charts and culminated in an appearance on the first ever live Top of the Pops , for which Lucinda will also be remembered for being the dance diva, sporting a giant treble clef on her head. Mind you as a former Alternative Miss World runner-up she was renowned for some of her costumes.

Following 40 MILES Lucinda undertook a promotional tour of the US which led to some serious recording sessions with a host of influential DJ's and dance music producers before she decided she needed to follow her own path and write and record her own material. Eventually Lucinda recorded a solo acoustic album I BELIEVE (1996) co-produced by Count Dubulah of Transglobal Underground and Temple of Sound. I Believe's eclectic selection of songs achieved national radio play and the limited edition pressing sold out making it highly collectable.

N 2002, EM records of Japan tracked Lucinda down to released the original version of SUNSET RED with Neil Barnes (Leftfield) on percussion. Declared a samba styled summer smash by NME it has already achieved great success in Japan, where Lucinda is fast becoming a cult figure. Success as a solo artist did not preclude her love of collaboration particularly with the internationally acclaimed bass player, writer, Winston Blissett (Massive Attack), which led to HEART IN THE SKY , Lucinda's most ambitious project to date. This gem of a debut is a dramatic progression of her earlier solo work and has been masterly co-produced by world music maestros Temple of Sound.

2006 Lucinda is now returning to the stage with her forthcoming enhanced album SILVER LIFE .
Lucinda enlists world music maestros Temple of Sound (members of Natasha Atlas's production team) featuring their Drum & Bossa remix on ADORE along with remixes by, soundscapers Slipper (Loop Guru), globe trotter engineer producer David White and Kick production, composers for film, tv and animation. From chilled out acoustic, heavenly harmonies through to ambient and worldly remixes of tracks taken from her previous album “Heart in the Sky” which Lucinda originally co produced with Temple of Sound.
  Lucinda has very recently collaborated with Slipper on a new album being released on Elsewhen records  later this year. Keep checking their site for news of this ghostly project.
