Amelie Lucille Unveils the Emotional Side of an Old Soul

POETRY DANS LA RUE: Do you have any routines that you follow to stay creative and focused in your art practice?

Amelie Lucille: “Simply put, consistency. I attend a performing arts school. I am consistently surrounded by music and talented musicians. Attending a performing arts school allows me to constantly be working on my craft. It gives me the opportunity to play different instruments and listen to different kinds of music. I think it helps me stay creative, gets my musical juices flowing, and helps me stay focused.”

PDLR: What role does your personal identity play in influencing your artistic style and themes?

Amelie Lucille: “I’m obviously still very young, and it might sound kind of cheesy, but I am still figuring out who I am going to be. I think when it comes to music, I have always been drawn to emotional songs. When I say emotional songs, I mean really depressing, sad songs. I think I have always been in that aesthetic. When I say that, I’m referring to artists such as Phoebe Bridgers, Olivia Rodrigo, Lizzy McAlpine. I like to be in tune with my sad emotions.” 

“I have always been drawn to emotional songs”

PDLR: In what ways do you seek to evolve or grow as an artist, and what strategies have you found effective in managing your art? 

Amelie Lucille: “I am trying to learn to play more instruments. My main instrument is the guitar, but I am trying to learn how to play piano next. I’m learning to like the opportunities I get when it comes to performing live. I’ve found that performing live helps build my fanbase and audience. It encourages me to make new music. I love that I can get out of my comfort zone.”

PDLR: Can you share a particular artist or song that has had a significant impact on your musical journey, and how has it influenced your own music? 

Amelie Lucille: “Yes, my parents have the best taste in music. Growing up, I listened to “Weird Fishes” by Radiohead. The artist who has impacted me the most this year is Adrianne Lenker, the lead singer of Big Thief. She is insanely genius. Adrianne and I have a very similar style of music. I’ve listened to her music for an unhealthy amount of time. I think I definitely draw 100% of my influences from her.”

“I want the audience to be left feeling more”

PDLR: When your fans listen to “Pool,” what is something that you want them to take away from the song or leave with them? 

Amelie Lucille: “If you listen to the lyrics and the overall story you can tell that it’s coming from a narrative perspective and not me just explaining a situation. It’s about someone who is feeling used in a relationship. Towards the end, you start to understand there is more anger coming from the person. I want the audience to be left feeling more. Whether you can relate to it from a personal experience or just feeling moved by the song.”
