Bio

Drawing inspiration from the present day Bic Runga and Gillian Welch to the past in Hank Williams, Lucy Wilson frolics between folk, pop and poetic storytelling with a seemingly casual ease. The experience of studying An Advanced Diploma Of Jazz to guesting on The Smith Street Band’s 2011 debut album reverberates through her music, with a delivery, and subsequent audience, as broad as her influences. Along with securing a slew of international supports including Iowa blues singer William Elliot Whitmore, former Avail frontman Tim Barry, New Jersey troubadour PJ Bond and bluegrass punk Austin Lucas, Lucy has graced the pub festival circuit with performances at The Poison City Weekender in her hometown of Melbourne, Blood Sweat & Beers in Sydney and All Tomorrow’s Shoeys in Tasmania. Arming herself with a six string acoustic and her trusty ukulele, Lucy recently headed south for the hills of Hobart to record her debut EP with Lincoln Le Fevre (Wil Wagner, Luca Brasi, Jamie Hay) at The Infirmary studios, built on the grounds of the old Tasmanian Women’s Prison. Tilted Full To The Brim, the record was mastered by Jamal Ruhe (Laura Stevenson, Misfits, Morning Glory) at West West Side Music in New York and will be released as a digital download and 7inch vinyl in August/September. From the nonchalant narratives to the raw romance of her lyricism, the strength of Lucy’s music lies in its honesty and openness. “I write songs with four chords and the word love, a lot.”
