Today I’m presenting you with the track Back Home by the Australian composer and piano player Lucy Graham (aka Luminem) living in Melbourne. When she was a kid she could stop “banging around” on the piano, so as any good parent would do, Lucy’s parents signed her up for lessons. Lucy started composing about a decade ago; mainly for her own enjoyment. During the Corona pandemic she decided to start releasing music under the moniker Luminem.
The track Back Home was released as a single on the ???? of 2021, but will also be part of the debut EP set to be released mid 2021.
Tell us something about your track Back Home!
Back Home was a piece I wrote around 8 years ago which captures the feeling of returning to Melbourne after living in London, and being back in my family home. After adventuring overseas there’s a bittersweet appreciation of returning and seeing familiar things in a new light. Ironically, I am back living in my family home temporarily again at the moment as I release this! Funny how life turns out sometimes. I have dedicated this song to my father Lindsay Graham, who passed away from Motor Neurone Disease in 2018. Dad used to get such enjoyment from sitting and listening to my music, especially in his latter years. He was my number one fan! And Back Home was one of his favourites.
Thank you for sharing Lucy!
