Lucius is a triple-threat of “especially gorgeous” vocal harmonies (New York Times), infectious hooks, and dance-inducing percussion. Pair those traits with the band’s energetic live show and it’s easy to see why Rolling Stone says Lucius is “powerful enough to knock you over.” NPR’s “favorite band” is co-fronted by charismatic and identically-clad lead vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig who sing in unison uniquely delivering songs with stories told from the same perspective. Multi-instrumentalists Peter Lalish and Dan Molad round out the band.
The band released their second studio album Good Grief in March 2016 to widespread critical acclaim: “evoking… sparkling” (Pitchfork) “wonderful” (The Guardian). Good Grief is Lucius’ follow-up to 2013’s successful debut Wildewoman.
Wolfe and Laessig met in 2005 while attending Berklee College of Music. Since forming, Lucius has toured extensively, playing headline shows and major festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival. Additionally, they have collaborated with the likes of Jeff Tweedy, David Byrne and Roger Waters and have toured with The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Jack White and more.
