I am very happy to have hired Lucy for our event. Everyone had a great time listening to her guitar and singing. We talked on the phone leading up to the event and she learned the songs I requested and helped me make a memorable night. She is someone I’ll hire again for sure. Thanks Lucy!
Lucy is extremely nice and has such great energy. Took my request on short notice with every song I requested. I would definitely recommend her .
I asked to Lucy to perform for an event I hosted which focused on bringing artists together as a form of peaceful protest. Lucy was incredibly reliable and carefully planned her performance so it aligned with our objective. She eagerly joined optional meets to connect with other artists so we could put our best foot forward as a group. Lucy was compassionate, dedicated, and incredibly helpful when working with the technological aspect of the event. She sang and played guitar beautifully, engaging the audience, and soothing us with her insightful and humane lyrics, as well as her rich voice. I highly recommend working with Lucy; she’s an incredible artist and human being!
Response from Lucy Morningstar, Lucy Morningstar Band & Lucid Lion:
Thank you so much for taking the time to give me feedback. I had a fantastic time performing and connecting with everyone. I look forward to working with you again for future events!
I contacted Lucy Morningstar to perform at private event I was planning. I reviewed several artists on this site and others, as the company promotes and supports local, independent talent, and chose Lucy based on her versatility and talented combination of original music and new takes on older music. When I spoke to Lucy, I was amazed at how positive she was and how excited she was to work with me and the company for which I was planning. She ensured we had a positive experience by asking the appropriate questions to understand the audience and I was surprised by the end of her questions that I did not have any for her!! She'd already addressed everything!! She offered acoustic performances as well as full band performances to best fit the audience as well. I chose an acoustic performance for the atmosphere I was cultivating. Lucy brought all her own equipment, was positive, polite, knew what to play to entertain, and kept an energetic atmosphere throughout the event. During her breaks, she spoke to the guests and, from what I'm told, made a few new friends with her warm and inviting personality!! Five starts for performance and professionalism and bonus for what an amazing person she turned out to be!! Thank you Lucy Morningstar!! And thank you for the stickers to add to the store!!
What to Expect

Formed in Maui, Hawai’i, the Lucy Morningstar Band is a blend of melodic soul and indie-rock, one where threads of folk, reggae and blues spiral throughout the free-flowing songwriting and instrumentation — a carefree and inclusive spirit and attitude that also radiates from the stage.
“Performing live is what has perpetuated my love of songwriting and propelled our band forward,” Lucy said. “As I continue making records and building my career as an artist, working with the right musicians accompanying me is essential. When we formed this band in Hawai’i, a lot of new listeners were attracted by the authentic vibe of the music and our energy performing live.”
A lifelong musician, Lucy grew up with a multi-instrumentalist father, who was not only a composer, but also a teacher and performer. His deep love for the genuine power of live music the creative process set the trajectory for Lucy’s own melodic adventures and aspirations.
“He showed me music theory, gave me piano and guitar lessons, shared his recording studio and helped me get started engineering and producing my own songs,” Lucy said. “The toughest thing that has ever happened in my life occurred last year when he suddenly passed away. Being authentic to what comes naturally — whether that is happiness, pain, confusion, gratitude or any other emotion — is the best way I know how to write lyrics and melodies. Songs have always just come to me, playing in my head, as if I was channeling a message that erupted like a volcano through me.”
Coming in 2019, the Lucy Morningstar Band is tackling new challenges, pushing themselves into new directions and possibilities. It’s the simple notion of never stop learning, never stop evolving and honing your craft.
“It fulfills me to be able to cultivate joy and inspiration with my artistic vision,” Lucy said. “I believe there’s synergy and magic to being a part of a band and this group embodies the perfect balance of raw talent and true dedication.”
What has resulted from this current phase of the band is a new five-song EP. It was produced by John Avila, the bassist for Oingo Boingo, who also has sat behind the production controls for releases by Save Ferris and Reel Big Fish.
“John helped me to develop the arrangement in a way that brings each piece to a universal and uplifting place,” Lucy noted. “As a singer and guitarist, I’m learning to expand my horizons by listening to a variety of new music, playing more covers that speak to me and building my range vocally by working on different ways to perform songs and really connecting with the audience and what moves them.”
Aside from Avila, who played bass on the EP, drummer Anthony Logerfo (Lukas Nelson/Neil Young), keyboardist Alexander Burke (Billy Ray Cyrus/Save Ferris), guitarist Carl Harvey (Toots & The Maytals) and saxophonist Scott Page (Pink Floyd/Supertramp/Toto), among others, also contributed to the album.
“I’m grateful to have the people in my life who have shown me that they believe in what I do and push me continuously to keep working hard and getting closer to achieving all my goals,” Lucy reflected. “Being a musician is a blessing and something that also can be difficult at times. It’s often through our vulnerability that we find the strongest parts of ourselves. I feel that music has made me a more well-rounded individual and helped me get by in the hardest times — it’s truly been a force of positivity and endless awakening.”
