This Thursday, October 1, will be a big day for Drogheda singer-songwriter-producer Luchra because that’s when her new single is coming out, and we think it is something really special.
The song, it’s called 'With Me', is a joyful gay love song, an elegant and beautifully sung response to homophobia.
“I wanted to say that there's nothing shameful about same-sex relationships and no need to make excuses for your sexuality - it's a happy thing” Luchra told Drogheda Life.
Luchra is blessed with the most beautiful voice we have heard in a long time, it really is a voice in a million and we are predicting that we will be hearing hear a lot more of it in the not too distant future.

Given the right breaks and a bit of luck she could go really far if that’s what she wants.
She wrote and produced 'With Me' and it was mixed by her friend Sarah Branigan who was in the same class at Greenhills, it got its first radio play on LMFM recently.
Luchra says she is inspired as a singer-songwriter-producer by the likes of the New Zealand singer and songwriter Lorde, Holly Humberstone and Gabrielle Aplin.
She says she loves Taylor Swift's folklore “more than life itself” and thanks it and the Twilight soundtracks for getting her through 2020.

Her feminist debut EP 'Woman' comes out in early 2021.
