Upon the independent release of her debut indie-rock EP: “Ordinary Matter” (streamed over 76,000 times), genre-bending artist Last Apollo (a.k.a. Lucy Rice) was quickly identified by acclaimed sources such as The Irish Times, Hotpress, Nialler 9 and The GOO as ‘One to Watch’. Rice’s unique song-writing ability combined with her emotionally charged live performances has inevitably earned her an international cult following. Rice effortlessly commands the attention of any audience and ensnares them with her haunting lyrics and crowd silencing vocal style.
Recent performances include: Primavera Pro (Barcelona), Irish Music Week (Dublin), Pro Weekend Fest (Valencia), TILT (Dublin) and Whelan’s Ones To Watch (Dublin). She has also performed three headline shows in Dublin, a poetry/prose infused concert at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris and a headline show in London. In October 2023, she began the release of a new wave of songs beginning with the single ‘Just Tonight.’ These new songs indicate a clear step away from her earlier indie hits as Rice continues to carve out and explore a unique style of songwriting darker and more emotive than ever before.
