Hailing from the far South Western corner of Australia, singer-songwriter Lucy Wise has delighted audiences across Australia, New Zealand and the UK with her unique blend of folk, chamber and pop music combined with masterful storytelling. Drawing inspirtion from her background in Appalachian and Celtic folk music, as well as legendary songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, Lucy’s songs sketch universally recognisable stories that are grounded in the realities of everyday experience.
Four years ago Lucy Wise gave a ukulele and songwriting workshop at The Patch Primary School where Sadie Mustoe was a grade 3 student. Sadie is now an award-winning singer-songwriter performing at major festivals around Australia and will be teaming up with Lucy – the mentor and the student. The inspiration and the inspired –side by side.
“A wonderfully natural singer and uncommonly gifted writer. Prediction: within this decade Lucy will be a noted songster, worldwide.”
~ Doug Spencer, ABC Radio National
