Lucybell is a Chilean rock band formed by four students from the Universidad de Chile’s Faculty of Art in 1991, in Santiago de Chile. The original four members were:
Francisco González: drums, bass, percussion, keyboards (1991–2005)
Marcelo Muñoz: bass, acoustic guitar, keyboards (1991–2000)
Claudio Valenzuela: lead voice and composer, electric guitar (1991-)
Gabriel Vigliensoni: keyboards (1991–2000)Marcelo Muñoz and Gabriel Vigliesoni left the band shortly before the recording of the album Amanece in early 2000. Eduardo Caces (bass) joined shortly after, becoming a permanent member of the band ever since. Francisco Gonzalez then left in 2005, leading to the immediate arrival of Cote Foncea (drums), of the now defunct Chilean rock band Dracma.
In the wake of these inner turmoils, the band managed to issue their fifth studio album
“Lúmina”, which displayed the new direction the band was taking – a rawer guitar-driven sound, moving away from the previous programmed and synth-friendly tunes. A year earlier the EP “Sálvame la Vida” was the prelude to this evolution, it included the first “Lúmina” single along with some cover songs released in tribute albums and a contribution to a movie soundtrack. The group, currently composed of Valenzuela, Caces and Foncea, recently signed with Warner Mexico and released their most recent work, “Comiendo Fuego”. At the end of the year 2007, the band recorded by their own means the EP “Primitivo”, following the “do it yourself” indie music aesthetics.
