Lucie Silvas is breaking out a brand-new song titled “Smoke,” which is proving to be a fantastic one. The song takes us on a journey as Silvas battles her inner demons. The song and video are part of a trilogy that includes “Letters to Ghosts” and “Villains.”
CMT reports that the entire trilogy was written by Patrick Tohill. Rick Brantley and Erin McCarley also make appearances in the video.
Silvas recently discussed her new project with Rolling Stone Country: “Writing music and singing and performing live is something that comes natural,” she said, “but then when you get into the world of videos and visuals – some people think like that from the very beginning, but I was just playing music. So, I was trying to think of a way I could do it comfortably. And that was to play a role, and play this villainous character.”
Silvas definitely pulled off the villainous role perfectly. She says the entire song started as a simple conversation with a friend. Silvas later took a single line from that conversation to create the whole song. It definitely gives us something to think about and is a beautiful song.

Lucie Silvas is a British singer-songwriter. She began learning how to play the piano when she was five and had her first song written by the age of 10. The rising star first signed with EMI Records in the year 2000 and promptly released her debut single, “It’s Too Late.”
Silvas has continued to write, record and perform music since her very first single release. She broke into the world of country music last year when she helped Miranda Lambert write “Smoking Jacket” for her The Weight of These Wings album. This album went on to earn Lambert an ACM Award for Album of the Year a few weeks ago.
