Lucie Blue Tremblay's music has an intensity that also soothes. The bilingual background of this Canadian-born singer/songwriter has proved a valuable asset, and her keyboard and guitar-playing skills have provided useful accompaniment to her poignant, spellbinding ballads ever since she first arrived on the Canadian music scene in 1984. her self-titled debut album was voted a Top Ten Album of the Year by the Boston Globe in 1986, and on subsequent albums she has continued to turn personal experience into compelling song, with studio recordings interspersed with concert cuts, and English lyrics alternating with songs in French. Tremblay serenades listeners with a rich, warm voice that can soar from a throaty purr to strong, crystal tones, her songs combining a soft melodic essence with a depth of feeling that is riveting, particularly in her love songs. Her performing credits include appearances at new York's Carnegie Hall and the Canadian pavilion at the 1992 World's Fair in Seville, Spain and she has also been heard with James Taylor and Randy Newman on National Public Radio's weekly broadcast E-Town.
