Lucy Dacus was born, raised, and currently lives in Richmond, Virginia. Her first record, No Burden, was the result of a school assignment with her guitarist and longtime friend Jacob Blizard. After an original release by Virginia label Egghunt Records, the album was reissued on Matador Records following an onslaught of unexpected attention and critical acclaim. Her highly anticipated second album, Historian, came out in March 2018 and focuses on themes such as loss, death, hope, resilience, and gratefulness. Dacus is on the road with a four-piece band to support Historian in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Europe throughout the upcoming year.
"Her guitar-centered indie rock sound, grounded by her wistful yet pragmatic vocals, sparkles with her simmering wit." - Pitchfork
"Dacus widens out her sound with string sections and horn stabs [in Historian], while Night Shift suddenly shifts from wistful reminiscence into a rib-shaking kiss-off to her ex." - BBC
"This is a rock’n’roll album with deep understanding of pop melody but layered up with bold lyrics which disarm you as much as they connect with you." - NME
