Debbie Millman | Audio

Lucy Wainwright Roche

Despite the fact that Lucy Wainwright Roche comes from music royalty—her father is Grammy Award winning folk artist Loudon Wainwright III, her mother was one-third of the legendary folk trio The Roches and her half siblings are Rufus and Martha Wainwright—she starter her carrer as an elementary school teacher. Eventually she began singing backup in her brother’s band and by 2010 she had recorded and released her own CD. When you hear her beguiling voice and listen to her songs, you might conclude she had no choice in the matter.

Debbie talks to Lucy about her musical family, her career as a singer-songwriter, and her musical tastes. “I really like sad music. A lot. Most of the songs I love are really sad.”
