Lucius

Indie,Pop

In the summer of 2007, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig moved into a dusty, old recording studio and music school formerly called the Bromley School of Music. With the help of the Bromley's original 1921 Steinway that was left at the house, they penned their debut album 'Songs From The Bromley House.' The four-story musical fortress housed 8 other musician friends and would soon open their doors to bandmates, Danny Molad and Peter Lalish amid their musical community. 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. It’s not uncommon to see Lucius doppelgängers in the crowd. They followed that with the 2016 release "Good Grief."
