Lucy Burke Please Stay


Lucy Burke Please Stay

Acclaimed Singer Songwriter Lucy Burke announced the impending release of her new single and video "Please Stay" for 23rd July and the accompanying event fundraiser for the RSPCA.

Lucy is renowned not just as a singer, but also for being a great champion for animal rights. "The love we feel for our pets is a pure form of love," she explained. "And the love that dogs feel for each other is very real, so I felt telling the story of two dogs who can't bear to be separated would be a good way to convey the underlying meaning of the song."

The accompanying music video employs the metaphor of dogs that are best mates being unfairly separated, as one is adopted from an illicit dog seller, leaving behind the other. In the spirit of the video, Lucy will use the song's launch party as a fundraising event to benefit the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).

The launch party and in-person gig will take place on July 23 at The Factory Theatre in Sydney. The event will have raffles and prizes for audience members who donate and buy tickets that benefit the RSPCA.

'Please Stay' was filmed on the picturesque Northern Beaches, namely Mona Vale and Bayview Dog Park. Lucy says 'We needed somewhere that was beautiful but also a quiet so the dogs could run around in a safe space. So filming around the dog park at Bayview just made sense'.

Lucy is a singer songwriter with a dreamy voice and powerful presence. She is from Sydney, Australia and is a versatile performer with a voice that is equally comfortable singing ambient, acoustic, pop and jazz. Her biggest music influences come from Lana Del Ray, Portishead, Radiohead, The Beatles and Norah Jones. Her music is eclectic and engaging. Supported by her band, Lucy Burke has become a featured act in the Australian music scene.

Lucy was invited to be the featured artist at The Sydney Football Stadium in 2016, after having won the "Bands on Stage" competition. Additionally, Ms. Burke was the featured artist at the 2017 Australian Songwriters Awards, where she performed her single "Leaving on a Lie."

Fans can find Lucy and her band performing throughout Sydney at popular venues including Lazybones, Venue 505, The Basement, Foundry 616 and The Vanguard. She has released three successful studio albums at premier music studios including Abbey Road, London, and loves songwriting and storytelling. Spending time recording quality music in the studio and on stage gives her the opportunity to create great musical moments, working with industry professionals.
