Ambar Lucid with KCRW DJs Wyldeflower & Nassir Nassirzadeh
July 7 with KCRW DJs Wyldeflower & Nassir Nassirzadeh
With a youthful voice that moves quickly between delicate, jazzy, and assertively soulful, Ambar Lucid began sharing her seductively off-center bedroom recordings as a high school student in 2017. Raised partly in the Dominican Republic and mostly in the New York City suburb of Little Ferry, New Jersey, she mixed Spanish and English lyrics from her earliest songs, including the 2017 viral acoustic track "A Letter to My Younger Self." Combining folk-styled fingerpicking, atmospheric electric guitar, dreamy electronics, and occasional horns and beats, her full-length debut, Dreaming Lucid, saw release in 2018 and was followed in 2020 by the sonically robust Garden of Lucid. She has just released the single "girl ur so pretty" in advance of her summer 2022 Estrella Tour.
