Lucy Wainwright Roche
Lucy Wainwright Roche grew up in Greenwich Village, New York City. She is the daughter of two performing musicians, Loudon Wainwright and Suzzy Roche (The Roches). Her childhood was spent living out of a suitcase, either on the road, with her parents or being ferried around to different relatives in her big musical clan.
In a family of rebels, she proved most rebellious by completing her Master's Degree in Education and has spent several years teaching second and third grade in New York City. After singing backup with her brother, Rufus Wainwright, over the years 2005 & 2006, she decided to take some time off from the classroom to explore her life long relationship to singing and song writing. Described by the New York Times as having the best qualities of both her parents and a voice "clear as a bell", Lucy is a refreshing, pure, alternative to the jive pop culture. She is alarmingly straightforward and unadorned. A young singer with a unique perspective, her stunning voice and wickedly poignant and funny stories make her live shows very compelling.
Lucy finished her first full length CD in 2010. It is a collection of 10 new, original songs and two covers. Produced by Lucy and Stewart Lerman (Antony and the Johnsons, Dar Williams) , the album features appearances by The Roches, Indigo Girls, Girlyman, Steuart Smith (Shawn Colvin, The Eagles) and David Mansfield (Bob Dylan, Calexico) as well as a surprising duet with This American Life's Ira Glass.
Lucy has shared the stage with many people including the Indigo Girls, Brandi Carlile, Amos Lee, Teddy Thompson, Rufus Wainwright, Dar Williams, Girlyman, Over The Rhine and Neko Case. In the past 3 years she has toured all over the US, UK and Australia.
