Epic Babe of the Month: Lacy Cavalier
I once was told that being an artist is one of the hardest things for a human being to be - because it is constantly reopening the scars of your past for your music, while also healing them with your music. Lacy Cavalier has taken her honestly, openness and undeniable artistic talent and wrapped it into a whirlwind year of incredible successes and growth.
Just over a year ago, Lacy uploaded a black and white video of her in her apartment with the audio of her song “Cheating On U” playing over it. She said that it was a song that needed to be out in the world, it was a piece of her story that needed to be told. This is what makes a real artist. It’s the feeling that you have when your soul tells you what needs to be said, and the intuition that people need to share in that story too. Flash forward to now, and “Cheating On U” has 3.6 million views on that video, and 3.3 million streams on Spotify. Here’s the thing about Lacy. She is real. Not in a “ugh I’m wearing no makeup on IG I’m so real!!!” - when they are wearing a ton of it type of way. This music, this ARTIST is hiding nothing. Arranging words and music to the exact perfect translation of her pain, experience and growth from a time in her life she felt all of the above. When you flip on the sound to her IG stories, that’s a whole other level of real - in the absolute best way! Her Louisiana accent paired with the hilarious antics that is Lacy Cavalier's life? Welcome to your new favorite Instagram feed/reality show with Lacy as your star! As emotional and real as she can get with pain and heartache, she also can make you laugh until you cry. Now THAT is talent. She loves her friends and family so much it’s obvious, and they love her! (So do we duh!) Her style ranges from athletic and sporty but somehow glam!? Like how she wears the satin joggers - sporty but glam! To then sleek and sophisticated, actually belongs on a red carpet looks that you can’t double tap fast enough. We also love an organic Camo-shirt moment from Lacy. By Camo-shirt, I mean looks like she actually is going to the woods camo shirt. An icon amoung us, really.
Another element of why Lacy is so incredibly Epic, is she works hard. On top of being emotionally naked, it is daily songwriting sessions, meetings, flying across the country back and forth, giving up time with friends and family. It is an industry where nothing is promised, and everything is a dream. Lacy does the late nights, the early mornings, the WORK because she knows that this is who she is - an artist. For that, we are so incredibly grateful. Over all, Lacy has shown how you grow from immense pain (Cheating On U) and follow it up with an incredible body of work that is just as successful (K, I’m done.) and grow into a respected and admired female up and coming artist. We can’t wait to see her continue to share her caring, bold, loud, enchanting self with the world. It’s an honor to know her, and it’s an honor to hear her stories and know her life. So we highly recommend doing just that. An epic artist, woman, sister, daughter, dancer, writer, friend - an Epic Babe.
Her latest EP, "K, I'm Done."
