"The Country Lady’s Angels" or "The LCA's" is born from the meeting between Candice PARISE (singer, lyricist), Manuel JULVEZ (songwriter/singer/guitarist) and Jean-Michel PEYROT (songwriter/guitarist).

 

In autumn 2014, Candice attended one of the Manuel’s concerts and was immediately hit by his compositions, combining actual music, both Traditional & New Country Music and Folk.

 

That day, Manuel invited Candice to go on stage and sing with him and his friend and guitarist, Geoffrey Chaurand, a former member of his band "The Roving Seats": that was a real artistic love at first sight!

 

Candice & Manuel remained in contact and quickly wished to share the stage again.


A few months later, Manuel invited Candice during one of The Roving Seats’ concert near Paris. They sung several songs, excerpts from the american TV show "Nashville" and some Manuel’s original songs, accompanied by the 5 other members of the band, including Jean-Michel PEYROT.

 

The excitement was clearly there. Candice, Manuel & Jean-Michel decided to work together!

 

The songwriting was split naturally: Candice, inspired by the Manuel & Jean-Michel’s original melodies, started writing words on a paper. Manuel & Jean-Michel being fully complementary, ideas for original songs started growing, and the first song of « The LCA's" born under the name "My Motherly Angel ».

Many other songs were created then, and the artists started working on arrangements, based on artistic proposals, tastes and desires of each members. It was a real artistic brainstorming, putting in these songs their personality.

Sometimes some ballads, sometimes more mid or up-tempo songs but above all, creations thought and composed from the bottom of their hearts, not just some songs to fit a specific commercial purpose. The LCA is a Trio in which the artists listen to each others, where the members compose songs the most sincerely possible because they are convinced this is the way to merge with the folks and just to be true!

 

With these 3 passionate artists, full of talent and multiple sensibilities, "The Lady's Country Angels" takes a good start. Indeed, just few weeks after composing their first original songs, the LCA’s have offered their first concert dates!

 

So you will be able to join them soon on stage during the American Journeys of Cambrai (May 28th, 2016) and on one the biggest stage in Europe for Country Music, the great Festival Country Rendez-Vous of Craponne-sur-Arzon (July 28th to 30th, 2016).

 

Waiting to find them on stage, keep on following and listening to The "LCA's" on ReverbNation, on their official website www.theladyscountryangels.com and on their Facebook page!

 

Their melodious original songs may make you grow... wings! ;-)
