Bio

Lucy Wise has delighted audiences across Australia and internationally with her soulful voice, masterful storytelling, and intricate ukulele, guitar and Appalachian dulcimer playing.

Lucy grew up with a lot of musical instruments around the house, performing at Australian folk festivals with the Wise Family Band until she moved to Melbourne in 2009. Having toured three albums and and two EPs over the past 9 years, Lucy has developed a great reputation for her songwriting, which weaves together traditional folk and pop influences with a strong focus on storytelling. She has played to packed venues at Sidmouth Music Week (UK), The National Folk Festival (ACT), Port Fairy Folk Festival (VIC) and Woodford Folk Festival (QLD).

Lucy’s latest album, Winter Sun comprises songs about love, friendship and human relationships to place, the record draws on Lucy’s experiences over the last few years of touring as well as times spent closer to home, walking the streets and creek paths of Melbourne’s inner north.
 
“A wonderfully natural singer and uncommonly gifted writer. Prediction: within this decade Lucy will be a noted songster, worldwide.” – Doug Spencer, ABC Radio National
