Lucie’s album was ABC Radio National’s album of the week and has left a swathe of fond reviews in its wake…
“Bonfires In Silver City reveals a subtlety and craft that eclipses Thorne’s prior work.”
— Martin Jones, Rhythms Magazine, August 2011
“I’ve been listening to three great female artists in the last month; the first two, Gillian Welch and Emmylou Harris require little introduction to most, their bodies of work substantial, their standing already verging on legendary. The third is a name lesser known, but her album Bonfires in Silver City is undoubtedly the best of all three. Lucie Thorne is one of our own, and with this album she makes a firm statement that she is one of our finest. World-class.”
— Chris Peken, Alternative Music Group
“Mitchell fans will sense a resonance of 1976’s Hejira, for many her masterpiece, in Bonfires In Silver City…. the records are strikingly similar; poetic, introspective works that have a solidity and wholeness.”
— Ian Cuthbertson, The Australian, August 2011
