Lucy Dacus

Richmond-based singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus' just-released Historian builds on the promise of her 2017 debut with personal and politically minded songs that showcase her sharp wit and deeply felt emotions (or, as she puts it on lead single "Next of Kin," those feelings that are "too deep inside my head/Too far outside my skin"). Her packed Austin schedule includes a set at the storied Waterloo Records.
