Lucy Arnell was born in New York City in August, 1989. Arnell has previously referred to herself as a "reformed concert bum," referencing the early chunk of her youth. In the Summer of 2013, Arnell relocated from New York to San Francisco where she began honing her skills on the guitar, as well as her songwriting craft. It was around this time she met guitarist/multi instrumentalist Jason Abraham Roberts (Norah Jones, HYMNS), and the two began collaborating on recording sessions. In the Fall of 2013, Arnell recorded her first EP - the Roberts'- produced 'Side By Side,' a four song collection of three originals and an uptempo take on John Prine's "Angel From Montgomery."
In Spring 2014, they returned to the studio and began production of Arnell's first full length release, "The Whole Sky Turned Red With The Rainbow." The album, produced by Roberts, features ten original songs co-written and arranged by Arnell and Roberts. Jon Fishman (Phish) played drums on the ultimate track 'Fatal Folk'. The record is a heartfelt homage to the past, in every sense. Experimental but not pretentious, classic but not old. The psych-rock tinged canvas painted on Arnell's freshman release demonstrates more than just her sense of melody; the youth of her songwriting is endearing, and the feeling is palpable.
