She has been compared to Joni Mitchell and Patty Griffin by NPR — was born in NYC into an influential musical family. She rebelled against the family business by teaching elementary school for several years before getting involved in music. Since 2007, Lucy has released two EPs and a studio album entitled Lucy (2010), toured the U.S., Canada and Europe, and has performed with a number of musicians including the Indigo Girls, Neko Case, and Over the Rhine. Lucy is known for her crystal clear voice and straightforward, funny stage presence. When she’s not on tour, Lucy now lives in Brooklyn, NY.
Suzzy Roche, originally from Park Ridge, New Jersey, is best known for her work with the female vocal group the Roches, alongside sisters Maggie and Terre. Suzzy is the youngest of the three, and joined the act in 1977. After performing with the group professionally for more than thirty years, Roche released a few solo works including Holy Smokes and Songs from an Unmarried Housewife and Mother, Greenwich Village, USA.
