If Joni Mitchell and Sandy Denny had a child together, she might sound a lot like Lucy Wise...Wise is extremely talented, and one can hear her influences, but for the most part she makes her own distinct sound. This is pure folk music, played well and with a great deal of emotion.” - Aaron Badgley

Bio

Lucy Wise’s whimsical contemporary folk sound has won the hearts of audiences across Australia, NZ, the US and the UK. She explores themes of love, the natural world, friendship and healing with disarming honesty, and accompanies her stunningly pure vocals with fingerpicked guitar, ukulele, and Appalachian dulcimer. Lucy’s 2018 album, “Winter Sun” was received with critical acclaim: a 4.5 star review in the Weekend Australian and was a finalist for The Age Music Victoria Awards’ Best Folk or Roots Album. Lucy is currently recording her fourth album, to be released in 2022.
