Asheville-based outfit lund
, fronted by the amazing Nicole Lund, who will release their debut LP Right This Time,
produced by Tyler "Falcon" Greenwell (Tedeschi Trucks Band), on September 9th. Recently, they released a swampy new single, "Paper Tiger,"
and on September 2nd, they'll release my personal fave on the album, "Good Advice."
It's so fierce, I can't stop listening to it!
As a teenager, Nicole was introduced to 60s/70s rock via her parents' record collection. Her dad snuck her into a club in her hometown of Charlotte, NC to see The Derek Trucks Band, and that show changed her life. "I had never heard ‘real’ music like that before and I was hooked," she says, and that very night, Nicole became a member of the band's Street Team.
Eventually, she took over the street team operations, then interned with the band's manager after graduating with a vocal and music business degree. After the internship ended, Nicole became his assistant and learned the ins and outs of the music business.
One day, she had her tarot read, and her life changed once again. “I don’t know if you believe in this crap,” she says, “but I drew the Hermit card, representing exploration and personal growth. He’s shining a light: Come on out of the shadows!” After a decade in the music business on the management and booking sides, the classically trained singer has finally moved toward the light. “It was time.” The band will celebrate the release of the album with a show in Asheville on Friday, September 2nd at One World Brewing West
