Montréal, March 29, 2023 – Last October, Lulu Hughes treated us to her fourth album, the vibrant Built Near the Water. In a few months, the singer will hit the road in Québec, where her powerful and distinctive voice will ring out in a series of intimate concerts.

Blues fans will be delighted to learn that Hughes is back […] The power of her ballads is equalled only by that of her voice. Definitely worth the detour! – Valérie Marcoux, Le Soleil

***1/2 – Across the horizon, deep in the forest, a bluesy glade dappled with light. The instrumentation is distributed from one end of this vast stage to the other, vocals emanating seemingly from everywhere, the trees serving as the arches of a veritable cathedral of music […] Just keep the album on loop. And everything is reborn. – Sylvain Cormier, Le Devoir

For her new show, Hughes, an artist at the height of her powers, will be returning to her first loves, rock and blues. Backed by a talented foursome that includes Jean-Sébastien Chouinard (Les Respectables, Simple Plan) and Dan Georgesco (Too Many Cooks), she’ll perform tracks from her latest album, her most personal to date. She’ll also punctuate her setlist with a few tributes to those who inspired her: Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin. All in all, an event high on energy and emotions!
