Lucie Thorne & The Yearlings from Australia: LilFest Concert Season Opener
Lucie Thorne,  lauded for writing some of the most simple and beautiful songs you will hear (-The Age),  has earned her place as one of Australias most striking contemporary songsmiths. With eleven releases to her name  including her latest LP Everything Sings Tonight  and a prodigious touring schedule, Lucie continues to carve out an extraordinary creative career. After being awarded Best Roots Album of 2009 by the Sydney Morning Herald; and having a song selected for inclusion on a Universal Records international compilation alongside Leonard Cohen and Radiohead, her album LOVE OVER GOLD, with Pieta Brown, brought more world attention to the Iowa music community.  Some relationships grow weary and worn, but for the Adelaide, Australia duo The Yearlings (Robyn Chalklen and Chris Parkinson), passing time has only distilled their unique brand of Australian alt. country, steeped in Americana traditions.  After spending the past four years sharing their brooding ballads, rolling roots and haunting harmonies with local and international audiences, The Yearlings have returned to the US with their fifth studio album, dark and sparse, yet full to the brim with imagery and atmosphere, ALL THE WANDERING, a ten-song collection which showcases their quiet evolution.  

Lucie Thorne - exquisitely impressionistic poetry in motion -Rolling Stone
"There is a quiet, contemplative beauty to Thorne's music. Strong, precise visual images... her rich but never overworked lyrics crackle with poetic intensity. With simplicity and clarity Thornes music and words cut through [;and]; she hits that sweet spot" - Courier Mail
The Yearlings  One of the best roots rock records Ive heard from Australia, or anywhere, this year. -Noel Mengel, Courier Mail
Brooding, country folk. Chalklens voice can haunt you for days.- The Sydney Morning Herald
The Yearlings express the lyrical truth of storylines about real life that poetically tug at the heartstrings.   Jimmy Little
