Hungry Lucy is a darkwave, trip-hop duo with a female vocalist. Beginning in 1998, they have released four full-length CDs. On Alfa Matrix in Europe (including EU only 2-CD boxset versions) and on Hungry Media for the US. Led by Christa Belle (lyrics, vocals, music) and Warren Harrison (music, programming and production), the two came together when Harrison was asked to contribute work on a Depeche Mode tribute album in 1998.

Hungry Lucy is included in numerous compilation releases, including Elektrauma 5 from Triton Records in 1999,[1] The Ultimate Electro-Industrial Compilation from Alfa Matrix in 2002,[2] and Noir - Smooth Female Trip Hop from Dancing Ferret Discs in 2003.[3] In 2005, To Kill a King debuted at #9 on the French Alternative Charts, and the radio show Echoes from Public Radio International, hosted by John Diliberto, featured Hungry Lucy with that debut.[4] The limited release EP, "Reigndance" reached #1 on the Dutch Underground Singles chart.[5]

The name "Hungry Lucy" refers to a young woman named Lucy Ryan who died in 1792. According to the ghost story of Havoc House, Psychic Sybil Leek is claimed to have channeled Ryan, and reported that Ryan was constantly complaining about being hungry.[6][7]
