Show Info

Lucy Wainwright Roche is an American singer-songwriter. Preceded by two EPs, “8 Songs” and “8 More”, Roche released her debut album, “Lucy” in October 2010. In addition to touring the country opening for such acts as the Indigo Girls, Amos Lee, her father Loudon Wainwright III, and brother Rufus Wainwright, Lucy also has sung backup for Grammy-nominated artist Neko Case, including an appearance with Case on The Late Show with David Letterman. "Saddest Sound", a song from her first EP appeared in the television show Lipstick Jungle. Lucy was one of the winners of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's "Emerging Artist" competition in 2008. In 2009, she won the Grassy Hill Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk Singer/Songwriter competition as well as Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song award for her song "Snare Drum" in the 8th Annual Independent Music Awards. Click for more info: Raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Lindsay makes her peace with the Christ-haunted South by writing songs about the one thing that makes us all equal and honest, death. However, don't be misled; the darkness in her songs is more about bringing things to light than bringing folks down. Her latest record, You, Anniversary, released by ATO Records in spring of 2012, is the result of a woman who has spent the bulk of her life trying to tell a story well. The title track is based on W.S Merwin's poem, "For The Anniversary of My Death". Her deep mournful vocal style, which has garnered comparisons to Patti Smith, Gillian Welch, and Nick Cave, sounds as though it comes from a place of necessity and nowhere else. The result is a rowdy yet affecting telling of stories involving all the things that make the beauty and violence of the human experience so damn curious. Click for more info:
