The Wainwright Sisters are actually half-sisters, two women using the same father and various mothers, although three parents involved are important figures in contemporary folk music, as well as the sisters themselves were gifted performers of note before they began working together. The Wainwright Sisters are Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche; Martha’s parents are vocalist and songwriter Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, who performed with her sister as Kate & Anna McGarrigle, while Lucy may be the little girl of Wainwright and Suzzy Roche from the vocal group the Roches, who was simply in a romantic relationship with Loudon after he and Kate divorced. While Martha and Lucy was raised in various households, they understood each other as kids, and like a lot of their siblings, they created a like of music and finally used music being a trade. Martha produced her documented debut at age group eight over the record Love Again and again by Kate & Anna McGarrigle, and she made an appearance on several tasks with her family before launching her self-titled debut EP in 1999, introducing a critically acclaimed profession being a vocalist and songwriter. Lucy, on the other hand, originally trained to be always a schoolteacher and didn’t start seeking a musical profession until she is at her mid-twenties, when she became a member of half-brother Rufus Wainwright being a support vocalist in his live present; Lucy released her initial solo record, Lucy, this year 2010. In 2015, Martha and Lucy started comparing notes over the music their moms sang to them if they had been young; the interactions resulted in their first collaborative documenting, Songs at night, a assortment of lullabies both traditional and unconventional.
