Hang Lucy is a West Coast punk-pop indie rock band. Their original song catalogue is as diverse as the members of this female-fronted Vancouver-based power trio. Coyly commenting on consumerism, politics, and the currency of time, Hang Lucy sure makes a lot of noise considering they only have 3 musicians onstage!
Singer and guitarist Devon More’s oldest musical roots are as a classical flautist – a background she now credits with her knack for piecing together catchy, distinctive melody lines to carry the lyrical weight of her poetic protest. With degrees in theatre and education, Devon works as an arts educator and workshop facilitator, and performs her original musical storytelling shows at festivals across the country and schools across BC. She is also the founder and curator of Way Off-Broadway Wednesday: a weekly theatre series in New Westminster presenting the freshest fringe theatre in the GVRD.
Drummer Ariane Tasca is originally from Montreal, though her career as a model has allowed her to make her home around the world, from Milan to Japan, London, New York and beyond. Since relocating to Vancouver, she is just as likely to be found at a fashion shoot as she is rock-climbing, back country camping, or completing ground-breaking long distance stand-up paddle-boarding treks around remote islands along BC’s rugged coastline. Her technical drum beats draw inspiration from hard rock bands that are heavier that you might expect by her angelic face.
Bassist John Pigeon is the soul of Hang Lucy: his skill on the fret-board of his 5-string bass reflect the best of funk, punk, and hip hop. His signature bass lines are rolling, complex and infectious. Having worked as a photographer, journalist, and motorcycle shop hand, John completed his MBA at SFU and now dons a very nice suit Monday to Friday while managing the guest experience from his office at the national headquarters of A&W in North Vancouver.
