“A bold expansion of Lucette’s melodic sensibilities, with arrangements that avoid the rootsy clichés of Americana music  and, instead, double down on synthesizers, piano lines and the occasional horn solo. ”  – Rolling Stone


"Gillis’ quest to define herself on her own terms became a mission statement for Deluxe Hotel Room… As Gillis gets more personal, her fierce vulnerability is sure to resonate with listeners old and new." American Songwriter

'Deluxe Hotel Room' has a bluesy, sophisticated, seen-it-all vibe…It’s music to plumb your soul by…   a master class in mood sustainability."  No Depression



Eclectic Canadian artist Lucette’s new album takes the traditional roots sound showcased on her 2014 debut and amplifies it by adding ethereal ambiance and emotive resonance to a foundation of R&B, pop and soul. Lucette’s cutting, honest lyrics are informed by life experiences in love, loss and battling inner demons as she comes into her own both personally and artistically.


Lucette, whose real name is Lauren Gillis, released her striking Dave Cobb-produced debut Black Is the Color five years ago, showcasing her stirring vocals and engrossing, illustrative storytelling. She spent the next several years developing her writing and live performances, while seeking to expand her sonic palette and touring with artists including Simpson, Mason Jennings, Joe Ely and David Ramirez. Her collaboration with Simpson pushed her sound even further, by incorporating synth lines, drum-machine beats and soulful saxophone tones to create a style that keeps one foot firmly planted in tradition while the other takes a giant step forward.


Deluxe Hotel Room is an impressive sophomore effort that finds Lucette digging deeper to deliver a richer, bolder sound as she explores the depths of loneliness and the enduring strength that comes from reaching the other side. The hauntingly vivid imagery she once crafted on murder ballads has evolved into poignant, evocative depictions of the rawest human emotions. 

“'Talk to Myself’ is about the feelings that go along with struggling with mental illness,” she explains. “Often feeling comforted by apathy and darkness, while equally drowning in it. It is about being your own worst enemy, but still finding the strength to push through despite the circumstances.”
