Girl group powerhouse Lucius put a fresh spin on Motown and soul music with their 2013 debut album Wildewoman, combining '60s influences with a modern indie pop sound. Whether Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe are lending their jaw-dropping vocals to "Don't Just Sit There" or swaying back and forth in their matching mod frocks and intricate updos, the fierce duo packs a serious punch. With pitch-perfect vocals and harmonies, Lucius deliver pure pop bliss both on their recordings and on stage. Back on tour the stylish and effervescent collective will treat fans to their retro pop confections as they share the bill with The Head and the Heart and Sara Bareilles among a string of headlining dates of their own.
Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig met in 2004 while studying at Boston's Berklee School of Music. After penning lyrics and performing together under the moniker Lucius for a number of years, they turned into a five-piece, collaborating under a "musical open door policy" according to Wolfe and honing their craft to perfection. The group’s smashing debut Wildewoman earned major praise from fans and critics alike with its well-blended harmonies and funky soul sound. Hot off the heels of tours with Wilco and City and Colour, Lucius are set for a number of shows alongside fierce female Sara Bareilles and folk outfit The Head and the Heart.
