Lucy Mistreated looking to garner community support and win best teen band contest
Young Nanaimo singer-songwriter Colby Kambietz wants to create good old rock ’n’ roll music.
He draws his inspiration for songs from what he sees around him, conversations with friends or what he feels.The musician is a member of Lucy Mistreated. The band is looking to win the title of B.C. Best Teen Band.
The YouThink contest asked the teens to submit two original songs. Lucy Mistreated submitted Ode, written by Kambietz, which is about a woman going through a tough time, and Public Education, which comments on the flaws in the public school system and how it needs to improve.
Although Lucy Mistreated is registered as a Duncan band it has Nanaimo connections through Kambietz and the bassist Ryan Wallace-Tarry who lives in Cedar. Other members include Cole Saunders, Colton Mann and Kaitlin Jasmine Greaves.
“It would be an honour. It would mean a lot and we would be thankful,” said Kambietz on how it would feel to win.
