Lucy Bumgarner is a singer-songwriter living in Austin, Texas.
Although young, Lucy is experienced with vocal performance and songwriting. She went to The University of Texas at Austin, where she studied music for almost two years before deciding to dedicate her time to being a full-time musician. During her time at UT she studied vocal technique under the instruction of opera singer, Ruth Ann Swenson. She also studied music production with Grammy-nominated producer Gary Powell, and sang in the jazz/pop recording group, Ensemble 109, of which he directed.
Lucy has sang with several bands, including the Austin rock band Edison Chair. She has played many solo acoustic shows throughout the Austin and San Antonio areas, and even hosted her own Open Mic night at The Drag Bar, located on "the drag" across from the UT campus. She has played at local festivals including the Pecan Street Festival and Veg Fest. Besides playing music, she has worked selling merch for bands such as Jimmie Vaughan and the Moving Sidewalks (a psychedelic band featuring Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top) and is an active participant in the Austin music scene.
Her music contains strong feminist undertones along with a hopeful pessimism, which instead of being mopey, is meant to inspire positive action. Although she writes about what she knows, her songs greatly relate to underlying human struggles that are accessible to anybody.
