Set List

  • "Born Again Teen"
  • "Tempest"
  • "Madness"
  • "Dusty Trails"

Lucius began as the duo of singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, but they've since added a few more elements to the band, making it a quintet. Lucius' first album, Wildewoman, came out in 2014, and the band is set to release a follow-up, Good Grief, on March 11.

In this session, Wolfe and Laessig share what it was like to sing backing vocals for Roger Waters of Pink Floyd at last year's Newport Folk Festival. You'll also hear them perform new songs from Good Grief. Check out the performance video of "Madness" below to see the band decked out in the matching outfits they wore in the official music video for "Born Again Teen," and grab a free download of Lucius' World Cafe performance of "Dusty Trails."
