Lucius is the duo of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, both Berklee School of Music graduates. When they wrote their self-titled EP, Lucius was living in an old Victorian house in Brooklyn, New York's Ditmas Park area. They found the place on Craigslist, not knowing it had been a recording studio and music school for 60 years prior. There were so many treasures that had been left behind–like a 100-year-old Steinway piano that would nurture their writing habits. The four-story musical fortress also housed eight other musician friends and would soon open their doors to bandmates, Danny Molad and Peter Lalish, and later, Andrew Burri. "None of us were concerned with trying to sound like ”˜a band’, we just wanted to create a unique environment for each song to sit in,” they say. Much of their record is about these unique experiences, told from the same perspective, at the same time, with the same sentiment. Two voices as one. "One minute, Lucius sounds like a girl group circa 1961; the next, you could be hearing an Emmylou Harris outtake," says NPR's Bob Boilen. Lucius is a real find! Don't believe us? Take it from Paul Krugman of The New York Times, who writes, "They're something special, and their songs keep rattling around in my head."
