The Triple Door: Name one song that's on your iTunes' "25 Most Played" playlist?
Lucy Wainwright Roche: And then you - Greg Laswell
TD: Name your biggest guilty pleasure, musically?
Lucy: Maybe Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend"? Except I don't feel guilty about it, I feel incredibly happy about that song in every way.
TD: When you're not playing music, what are you doing?
Lucy: Usually driving to the next city! Or, if I'm off the road I really like to cook, enjoy NYC and babysit.
TD: What was the first song you ever played/sang?
Lucy: "El Condor Pasa" Simon and Garfunkel. My Aunt Terre taught me to play it.
TD: If you could play with any musican, living or dead, who would it be?
Lucy: Hmmm. That's a tough one. I'd love to see Joni Mitchell do a concert. But I wouldn't want to play with her. I'm not brave enough for that!
TD: If you could perform in any city in the world, where would you?
Lucy: I'd love to play in Russia at some point.
TD: What's your most embarrassing on stage experience?
Lucy: When I was touring with the Indigo Girls they would ahve me sing "Closer to Fine" with them at the end of each show. I realized after about 7 shows that I'd been singing the wrong lyrics repeatedly. It wasn't that terrible but I felt pretty sheepish about it.
TD: What inspires you to play music?
Lucy: One of the things I find most useful in writing and making music is watching other people play- people I admire - and really watching and listening to how they do what they do. I think it's very inspiring to watch people do what they do best AND it also helps ME figure out what I do best.
TD: What hidden talents do you have?
Lucy: I'm a great parallel parker.
