Stories Are What You Asked For
Karl Saint Lucy and Andrew Maillet
with Zac Selissen
Piano-based singer-songwriters with a penchant for mercurial harmonies and prophesies about the end of the world, Karl Saint Lucy and Andrew Maillet are in the habit of making mountains out of mole hills and myths out of the mundane. In Stories Are What You Asked For, both go into their own ancient histories for tall tales and legends that must be shared. Zac Selissen joins on guitar.
Karl Saint Lucy is a composer, countertenor, and pianist based in New York. He wrote the music for the UCB hit musical, F***ing Identical Twins, with comedians Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp, and the musical, Class, with playwright-lyricist Maria Alexandria Beech. He is a graduate of the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
Andrew Maillet is a songwriter, composer, and media artist. He has performed solo at venues across New York including Dixon Place and the Bitter End, and released the EP, Fragile Actor, in 2015.
