Listen to indie singer-songwriter Lucy Wainwright Roche, and you’ll discover her unforgettable voice, smart, arresting songwriting, and her stellar stage presence. Born into a musical family, Lucy is deeply steeped in the musical world. In addition to her parents (Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche of The Roches) and her siblings, (Martha and Rufus Wainwright), Lucy’s various aunts, uncles and cousins are all musicians. After a childhood of touring in vans, and hanging out backstage at clubs and theaters around the country, Lucy went off to college and grad school –– a twist on the classic rebellion –– and became a school teacher in NYC. Then in 2005 on a whim, she spend a few weeks out on the road with her brother Rufus which reignited her deep connection to life on the road. Lucy left her teaching job to pursue music full time. Armed with a guitar and a huge angelic voice, she’s performed solo and with countless musicians from Neko Case to the Indigo Girls in this country and internationally.
