Lucy Roleff is a classically trained, folk songwriter from Melbourne. Born to a German Opera singer father and Maltese mother, she spent a childhood steeped in ornate European classical music, storytelling and folk styles.

Lucy’s compositions weave lyrical verse, fractured sounds and lush harmonies, interspersed with moments of haunting abandon. She explores themes of intimacy, longing, and the tiny nuances of everyday existence. 

Lucy's debut EP Longbows has received nation-wide airplay and rave reviews from various music blogs, The Herald Sun and The Music. Robbie Buck of Radio National called it “a beautifully restrained and delicate affair” and The Herald Sun; “a stunning display of technical skill and musical finesse – 4 stars” 

Lucy has composed for, and had her music featured in, several short films by The Australian Ballet. She also plays in electro-pop outfits Magic Hands and At/All.

Her first full length album 'This Paradise' is out now on Lost & Lonesome.
