Luciana Bio

Luciana's got the power to shock and seduce.

Her smash hit singles “I’m Still Hot” and “I Like That” pulsate with a sexy electro energy that’s as infectious as it is incendiary.

Available now at iTunes via Violent Lips Records, these songs are the perfect introduction to Luciana’s sound. Simultaneously electrifying and eclectic, the music drips European panache and gutter punk attitude. Throwing caution to the wind, she creates the perfect soundtrack for any tryst on the dance floor. “I Like That” is dirty, dangerous and daring, “I’m Still Hot” is cheeky and teasing—just like everything Luciana does.

About her sound, Luciana exclaims, “I describe it as ‘dirty electro.’ It’s a bit naughty, but it never gets boring. Nice is vanilla. You’ve got to be a little nasty. I want to assault your senses.”
The assault begins with “I’m Still Hot“ and I Like That,” but she’s already got an arsenal of songs planned for her forthcoming full-length. Fans have gotten just a taste of what to expect with her features on Bodyrox’s “Yeah Yeah” which reached number 2 in UK and her recent collaboration with Taio Cruz on “Come on Girl” which recently went top-5 there. And they just keep coming. She is also on British rapper Lethel Bizzle’s hit song “Go Go Go”.

Her music could be the audio equivalent of an Andy Warhol painting. Luciana spouts off iconic images from the modern Zeitgest including Gucci, Polaroid, graffiti, dollar bills and all kinds of candy within the landscape of her own propulsive ditty.

“You can take an image from every line of my songs,” she goes on. “Everything I do is visual as well as auditory. When I’m writing, I see the video. When I’m painting, I can see words. In my head, everything is multimedia.”

Luciana’s no stranger to the game—or to hit songs for that matter. She was first signed to Chrysalis in the UK at 18. However, she made an initial splash in the United States with her band Shooter. Their hit single for Columbia, “Life’s a Bitch,” began to show signs of a rock ‘n’ roll edge. However, in 2006, Luciana truly cultivated her sound. Her fiery dance track “Yeah Yeah” with Bodyrox became a smash success in the UK and numerous other territories. Most importantly, it paved the way for her proper U.S. solo debut.

Given her presence overseas, Luciana got the call to Los Angeles to write songs for Nicole Sherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls in 2009. However, Interscope / Violent Lips immediately flipped over Luciana’s tunes, and they wanted to sign her.

“They loved the attitude, and they saw the bigger picture,” says Luciana. “Their passion was so infectious, and we’re going to take everything to the next level together.”

That next level will showcase Luciana’s intricate writing style. She continues, “I’ve got all of these notebooks filled with phrases pieced together. Some of the phrases don’t make sense alone, but they do make sense in the end. I call it ‘Ad Hoc’ writing. The words form a picture. It’s always so simple, but everyone remembers the hooks.”

That writing style has also helped fuel incredible cuts from international superstars like Kylie Minogue. Luciana was behind “Cupid Boy” from Kylie’s latest release Aphrodite. Her hyper-charged lyrical poetry continues to dazzle producers and fellow artists alike.

“It’s very electric,” she laughs. “It’s really important to make the listener think. I’m writing all the time; it’s just observations. It starts to make sense when you piece it all together. It’s like a piece of artwork in words.”

From fashion to photography, Luciana continues to challenge herself, while imbuing her own stamp on each endeavor. That unique aesthetic permeates everything that she does as well. “Whether I’m taking a photo or writing a lyric, it’s always done with love.”

Because of that love, she’s going to shake the whole scene up. Luciana comes to quite the conclusion. “To me, it’s all about naughtiness. I love a bit of cheek and dirt. People feel that because it’s honest. People need someone to shout along with, and I’m there for them. Come and shout with me.”
