Lucy Wise

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 masterful storytelling, intricate ukulele and guitar playing and soulful voice. Drawing inspiration from her background in Appalachian and Celtic folk music, Lucy’s songs traverse the landscapes of memory, travel, and human relationships to place. Lucy’s third release, A Painting of the Universe (2015) comprises five songs, each telling a different story about life in Australia, and all inspired by winning poems of The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards, a national poetry competition for people aged 6 – 18.

“Wise is a natural storyteller, infusing songs with a sense of place so strong you can almost feel the dusty earth crunch beneath your feet as she sings.” – The Brag
