“…Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig’s soaring vocals make a massive pop sound
and hint at new possibilities for one of our favorite bands.” – NPR
David Bowie turned stage wear into an art form as Ziggy Stardust… A similar
sense of stylistic theatricality fuels Lucius…” – Pitchfork
“Especially gorgeous, moving…” – New York Times
“…dabling in pristine harmonies, the Berklee – trained sirens more often belt it out as a single unit with a force that decimates Phil Spector’s ‘Wall of Sound’ and has the potential to reach jupiter.” – Consequence of Sound
“This is music with an irrepressible edge.” – Relix
“…knocking the listeners sideways with some perfectly plush Fleetwood Mac – meets early Heart vibes.” – Noisey
Fronted by the sleek and compelling look – alike duo of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, and backed by their counterpart bandmates Dan Molad and Pete Lalish , Lucius have sold out shows across the
world, big and small. Having headlined all over the US and Europe, they’ve also played slots at Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, End of The Road, Austin City Limits, and shared the stage with a variety of renowned musicians including Roger Waters, Jack White, Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy, Sara Bareilles, Tegan and Sara and David Byrne.
The band’s uphill ascent began when Jess and Holly crossed paths while studying at Berklee College Of Music in Boston. Their strong bond lay the foundation of Lucius; they started playing music together over ten years ago and they haven’t stopped since. Along the way, they’ve become NPR darlings, and found themselves lauded by critics around the globe. Since the critically acclaimed release of their 2013 debut LP Wildewoman, they have built a stunningly loyal following, and share an intimate bond with their fans. Even today, it’s not uncommon to see Lucius doppelgängers in the crowd.
They released their second album, Good Grief, in 2016, and much like debut, it earned them high praise from influential critics such as Pitchfork, NPR, Rolling Stone and The Guardian. More recently, the single “Million Dollar Secret ” was featured in the last season of hit HBO series
