Banjo Lucia hailing from Fremantle, WA; is a passionate singer-songwriter, steeped in a deep love for the craft and tradition.
Lion Boy her latest single showcases the depth of Banjo’s voice so powerfully, yet she still has a level of vulnerability making this single one delicate and special release.
Of the single Banjo shares:
“Lion Boy is a song about my brother and observing the complexity of the teenage experience. It’s about the fact that holding a deep love for someone often comes with an agitation and intensity that’s hard to manoeuvre.”
Drawing influence from luminaries such as Frank Ocean, Björk and Julia Jacklin, Banjo is one of those artists that don’t come around often.
Her songs reveal a wisdom and sophisticated turn of phrase that belie her age, revealing an insight into the human condition that is at once heartbreaking and uplifting.
Her ability to turn mundane details into profound familiarity and transport the listener into the centre of her experience as if it was their own, is the mark of a truly gifted writer.
