Lucy Wise ‘Yearning’ EP Launch

After winning Best Folk Work at the 2023 Music Victoria Awards for her album, Into The Blue, Central VIC local singer-songwriter Lucy Wise is making her first visit to Palais-Hepburn this May to launch her new EP: Yearning.

Lucy’s natural singing and warm stage presence have captivated audiences across Australia, NZ, the US and the UK. Her distinctive vocal sound and instrumental backing draw on acoustic, traditional folk, roots and pop musical influences. Lucy describes in rich detail what it’s like to live in the world at this particular time, weaving a strong sense of place into her music.

This EP explores yearning in its many forms. How it shows up when we lose someone, when we’re not loved back, when we’re dreaming of our future, or on a walk in the rain. Yearning has frequented Lucy’s songs, and traditional folk songs Lucy grew up singing. Perhaps yearning is always somewhere deep in us – even during moments of joy, a part of us longs for that joy to last, or to come back.

By the flickering candle lights on tables, Lucy will sing these songs, as well as some brand new ones written over the summer, accompanying herself on an open-tuned guitar.
