Bio

Bold and unafraid to speak her mind, twenty year old Lucy Sugerman writes about her coming of age experiences of modern love and life, inspired by her songwriting heroes from the 70s. With a knack for confessional storytelling tied with assured pop hooks, Sugerman’s addictive and youthful energy perpetuates her music, even in her most vulnerable moments.

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.

This 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. Lucy released her third single, the cheeky and triumphant ‘golden boy’, ahead of her upcoming debut EP due out late 2021.

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.

Sugarman knows her way around a hook like she's got it connected directly to GPS navigation. Also, I'd like to add, if you're the boy who's the subject of this song, my condolences to your parents because unfortunately you are now dead.

haha that asshole line just creates such an image doesn't it. this one from lucy sugerman has this nostalgic, tip toe pop element to it with some brutal takedowns thrown in.
