Singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig met at Berklee College in Boston. And they admit, "We both had a difficult time in high school—we were loners and weird kids. So when we found each other and some of the other friends we met in college, it was great.” Laessig adds, "I always thought it was like the Blind Melon video [for 'No Rain'] where she finds all her other bees. That’s how I always felt."
One night, over a bottle of red wine, the two of them decided to embark on a musical project: a re-imagining of The Beatles’ “White Album.”
"We thought it would be cool to re-envision 'Happiness Is a Warm Gun' with two girls singing lead. We rearranged the song and planned to rearrange the rest of the tracks, and then we just never got around to it. We ended up writing our own stuff."
And the stuff they wrote is the stuff you know them for today with their band Lucius.
