LYDIA LUCE, Nashville Artist & Multi-Instrumentalist, Shares New Single “Never Enough”
May 12, 2023 BY Danielle Romeo
Nashville singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lydia Luce shares “Never Enough,” a psychedelic and reflective single about feeling content with what one has… and the enlightening power of magic mushrooms. The song will be available to stream everywhere tomorrow, May 12, here: https://lydialuce.ffm.to/neverenough
She says, “I’m always thinking about tomorrow and of what I want or need that will surely make me happy, and I end up getting in the way of my own happiness. The second verse refers to the feeling of a mushroom trip. When I’m tripping, I’m always reminded that I don’t need anything and nothing really matters. Everything is happening exactly as it’s supposed to.”

On the equally trippy music video, Luce says, “We filmed in Malibu with two of my closest friends. The song is about feeling like we never have enough, and I wanted the video to feel the opposite of that. We had the best day dancing and watching the sunset. The fish mask was a last-minute addition that represents when the mushrooms hit. It’s light and fun, and we didn’t overthink it. It was filmed on super8 by Leanne Selvadjian.”
Luce gave fan an initial taste of new music earlier this year with her dreamy single “Face and Figure,” and has been on the road supporting fellow Nashvillian and friend Ron Pop on his U.S. tour, which wraps June 3rd in their hometown at the CMA Theatre. They’ll link back up in September for a UK/European run. All date are HERE.
These new songs follow Luce’s gorgeous and cinematic 2022 EP Garden Songs, which showcased her penchant for lush arrangements and spellbinding vocal melodies and garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Consequence, Under The Radar, Folk Alley and more. Prior to that was her equally mesmerizing, intimate and acclaimed 2021 full-length album Dark River.
Lydia Luce grew up in a strict musical household where her mother was a professional conductor and did not present learning the violin as a choice. From six years old she excelled in numerous philharmonics but knew her path was not that of a professional classical musician. Instead, Luce found inspiration in combining her accomplished formal education and session work as a studio musician with the personal and emotional content of family, love, and life experience. In addition to her solo work, she created Lockeland Strings, a Nashville-based community arts organization and a showcase of local artists accompanied by string quartet arrangements, alongside performances of new contemporary classical pieces from local composers. They’ve been joined by Kacey Musgraves and Lucie Silvas, among others, and partners with nonprofits, including the ACLU of Tennessee, Girls Write Nashville and The Little Pantry That Could. Luce also plays viola as a session musician.
