Today I’m introducing you to the track Lucie by the Canadian based composer and piano player Wings for Louise, which you can read all about in this Behind the piano article. Wings for Louise’s real name is Charly Martin, and even though he is based in Montreal, he was born in France.
The track Lucie is taken from the EP Lights, Slow Places which was release on the 24th of September, 2021.
Tell us something about your track Lucie!
The first track Lucie is named after my girlfriend, who was at my sides every single day during the lockdown. Lucie and her smile were constant shining lights during this odd moment locked down in Hochelaga, a working-class neighbourhood in Montreal with which I have a love/hate relationship. During the album’s creation process, I had to escape myself from everyday life and its stresses, I did a lot of meditation, during which, my mind often travelled to Bages, a small fishing village in the south of France, next to Narbonne, the small town where I grew up. I realized what the common point between the present and the places where my mind drifted to had in common was their slowness, that’s why I named the third track Lent, which means slow in French.
Thank you very much for this track Charly!
