ABC News 2 Baltimore Catches Up With Lucy Angel
It's all about doing what they love with the people they love.
Country music trio Lucy Angel, made up of mom Kate and daughters Lindsay and Emily Anderton, has been making music for more than 10 years and it all started at home.
Emily Anderton said her parents met in a singing group in college, so music has always been a part of their lives.
When the girls were younger, they even performed in Christmas shows at their local mall, complete with matching sweatshirts.
"I was young enough that I just thought it was the coolest thing ever to be wearing glittery, matching sweatshirts. Lindsay was a few years older and did not think it was so cool," Emily said.
They are each other's built-in support network, filling the roles of colleagues, friends and of course family.
"I have a 2-year-old daughter and I don't always get to bring her, but I'm with my mom and my sister, and so that makes it, you know, a little better," Lindsay Anderton said. "You're taking a little bit of home with you every time you go."
Lindsay explained that touring with her mom and her sister makes bringing her daughter along a possibility.
The Andertons agree that it's been a team effort that also involved the men in the family to reach this point in their careers. Lucy Angel now has a song on the radio and a CD in mainstream stores.
"I feel like it's taken every member of the Anderton family to get us to where we are today," Emily Anderton said.
Kate Anderton agreed.
"I really feel like it's a pretty good distribution of support and strength," Kate Anderton said. "But I am the mother."
Kate Anderton said she tries not to play the "mom card," however, because of their working relationships.
"There are certain things I can't say to another band member because I am their mother," Kate Anderton said.
For Kate, Lucy Angel is a confluence of two of her lifelong dreams.
"From the time I was a little kid I knew I wanted to be a mom and I wanted to be a singer," Kate Anderton said.
Now she is living both of those dreams in one.
Their growing success has also given them the opportunity to give back. The group is in Baltimore this weekend to show their support for Maryland women.
The trio is scheduled to perform at a charity concert benefiting the House of Ruth Maryland at the Hard Rock Cafe Saturday.
The performance - which is free with the donation of a new, unused item for the organization - is part of a baby shower event for Claire Scattergood, a morning DJ at Baltimore Country music station WPOC.
"That's one of the cool things about being an artist is you get invited to do some really important, special things and hopefully help other people raise money; especially this charity, being for women specifically, it will be very near and dear to our hearts," Kate Anderton said.
