Lucy Wise announces east coast Into The Blue album tour

Lucy Wise

Live in concert, singer-songwriter Lucy Wise guides the audience on a journey.

From a profound feeling in the air in one moment, to infectious joy and humour in the next. Lucy writes and sings about the often-untouched universals – those things we’re often not allowed to feel and explore in the daily grind.

Off the back of releasing her album Into The Blue last year, singer-songwriter Lucy Wise has announced an east coast album tour, heading to Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria across May and June. Catch her when she heads to Melbourne for a show at Northcote Social Club on June 4.

Lucy openly tells her stories through music, creating a space to reflect on the experiences that matter the most to us. Touring nationally and internationally with many different line-ups over the past twelve years, including five-piece bands, trios, duos and solo, Lucy has continued to develop a presence with her music that is true and powerful.

Lucy’s music might best be described as ‘folk with feeling’. Her sound is grounded in folk tradition, and at the same time, she describes in rich detail what it’s like to live in the world at this particular time. She tells stories about growing up, love of all kinds, city life, country towns, beaches and bushlands, weaving a strong sense of place into her music.

Lucy’s new album, Into the Blue and its B-side EP, Yearning reflect the freedom she has always felt with music. This recording project comprises songs she has written over the past five years, and much like being at a folk festival, this body of work is like walking past crowded marquees and hearing a colourful unfurling of so many different sounds.

Fifteen guest musicians played across the album and EP, and the backing vocals on some tracks such by her mother and sisters is a tender, reverent acknowledgement of her musical upbringing.

The album and EP were mixed by Lucy’s partner and long-time collaborator, sound engineer and musician Mischa Herman, who helped amplify the magic of the songs and their instrumentation. Although the sounds are diverse across the album and EP, there is a thread connecting all the songs: they all speak the one language of human feeling, with layers of light and shade. With every new listen, there’s more to be discovered.
