How could Lucy Wainwright Roche not be a songwriter? Her parents are folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche (of the Roches), and her half-siblings are Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright. But Lucy became an elementary school teacher. Now, after singing back-up vocals on her brother Rufus's tour, she's released her solo debut, “8 Songs.” She joins us for an in-studio performance.

Hi John and SC team, Greg Burrows here (Chicha Libre, Andy Statman, etc.). Big omission: There's a Wainwright aunt who I feel is the best of all the family vocalists (in my unhumble opinion) and she doesn't get nearly enough media attention: Loudon III's sister, Sloan, for whom I played drums/percussion for 3 year. Thanks for another great show!

Nice connection to your first piece... A song about Best Western hotels.
