Comprised of passionate vocal performances by Steve Archambault and the talents of guitarist and co-founding member Mark Fitzpatrick, along with bassist Nate Comp and drummer Justin Pacy, the music of Craving Lucy’s universal themes have broad appeal.
Archambault and Fitzpatrick came together in another musical venture and began writing together; developing a cohesive chemistry to compose what would eventually become the sound of Craving Lucy.
Soon, the duo assembled their own band, labeled it Bionic and released a successful four-song EP with Collective Soul producer, Anthony J. Resta. The EP soon found its way onto the airwaves of mainstream Providence, RI commercial rock station WHJY. The act solidified in 2009 after recruiting drummer Pacy and bassist Comp. With the new members’ musical influences and sensibilities, the combination was explosive. Within months, the band was playing sold-out venues opening for several high-profile acts. Within that same short period, Craving Lucy has secured major partnerships with industry veterans, inked a deal to become the flagship artist, chosen over hundreds of other nationally
known artists, with MyRMX a new technology allowing users to create their own custom ring mixes on cell phones, garnered radio interest both on internet and terrestrial making a spot for themselves as a Top 40 Indicator chart record and the only Debut New Artist on the Chart that week. Craving Lucy took the air waves by storm with receiving Airplay Action on Over 25 Active Rock Stations across the country. SiriusXM channel Octane lends major support to Craving Lucy’s hit “Therapy” with over 250 Spins, along with New Hampshire’s WGIR and WHEB On the topic of the band’s writing style, “It doesn’t have to be heavy,” says Archambault, “but we wanted stuff that had some punch.” As for Craving Lucy’s sound, the band refers to it as “graceful, yet fierce”.
“You won’t need a therapist to figure out this is a really good band! See, I just saved you $150! But seriously, when it comes to bands from Boston, I’ll always have a soft spot for Craving Lucy.” -Roxy Myzal, Hard Drive
