Bio

Visually inspired by her Vietnamese heritage and sonically inspired by her songwriting heroes from the 60s and 70s, the bedroom pop movement and her everyday experiences of modern love and life, nineteen year old Lucy Sugerman writes confessional pop with a knack for clever lyricism and an airy vocal.

In 2020, Lucy was the recipient of one of APRA AMCOS’ Women in Music Mentorships as well as a part of their first ever Song Generations writing camp at ANU School of Music. Sugerman released I'd Do It All Again with LANKS as a part of his hotly anticipated double album Spirits. She then released her debut single 'i wanna kiss boys cos i'm bored' (co-written and produced with Hauskey and MUKI), premiered and spotlighted on triple J Unearthed and added to Spotify's New Music Friday AU & NZ and Indie Pop playlists.

Sugerman’s debut was followed by 'colour blind', co-written and produced with Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis, Eluera, Shannen James, The Million), with a sold-out single launch at the Lord Gladstone in Sydney. Lucy was also selected to be a part of APRA AMCOS' SongHubs Melbourne 2021, the first ever all women and non-binary identifying songwriting sessions of its kind, alongside the likes of Alex Lahey, Eilish Gilligan, Ninajirachi, Odette, Tulliah, Woodes, and guest writers Montaigne, G Flip, KLP, Lisa Mitchell and Anna Laverty curated by Gretta Ray. She also opened SummerSalt Festival in Canberra, joining a lineup alongside Montaigne, Boy & Bear, John Butler, the Teskey Brothers and the Cat Empire.

Sugerman lets people into her world through relatable tales of her struggles and triumphs in romance and growing up, showing that they are not alone, and capturing the humour and spirit in learning from your own experiences.

there's such emotion and believability in lucy's voice and this one will have people screaming as they listen 'me toooooo, that's me!'.

It's not the sugar rush of Lucy's last track 'I wanna kiss boys...' but one that moves a bit more cinematically. Both are indications that we're hearing a young artist making assured pop music that navigates the trials of modern romance.

I think you've just made a new genre - Sunset Pop. Listening to this makes me I wanna get into a 1978 Ford Mustang and just keep driving towards the horizon.
