Our homegrown singing star is headlining an all-ages gig in December.

Were you addicted to the Voice? Are you keen to see Lucy Sugerman on stage? Now’s your chance.

Described by four-time Grammy winner Seal as “a real national treasure”, The Voice Australia Grand Finalist Lucy Sugerman will play live at the Street Theatre with openers and The Voice alumni Amber Nichols and local songstress Sophie Edwards.

Lucy will be returning to her roots as a songwriter and performing her first headlining show. Taking a step away from her time as a solo artist, she’ll perform with a live band for the first time since her time on The Voice.

The show will feature songs performed on The Voice as well as original compositions.


Understanding her huge appeal across the ages, Lucy will play an all-ages family friendly show at the The Street Theatre on 3 December from 6pm. Using the theatre’s largest performance space with a 245 capacity, the show promises to will provide for a beautiful and intimate evening.

At just 16, Lucy has gone from busking in the streets to captivating the hearts of millions nationwide with a voice, and composure well beyond her years.

After finishing the top-rating show in the top four, the St Clare’s student was signed to global music giant Universal. Her talent is such that she was offered two separate contracts from the publishing and recording wings of the company – Universal Music Australia and UMPG – making her a potential future star in both song-writing and singing.

Performing since she was just nine years old, Lucy has played Beyond Festival, Googfest, TEDxCanberra Conference, the National Multicultural Festival and the National Folk Festival. She has been crowned an Australian National Busking Champion for two years running and became the 2017 Young Canberra Citizen of the Year for Arts and Multimedia.

She will be supported by singer-songwriter Amber Nichols who inspired audiences across Australia whilst carrying her second child and competing on The Voice in 2015. A true inspiration to those chasing their dreams no matter the circumstance, her stunning vocals and unique journey inspired the hearts of many.

Sophie Edwards is also a rising local talent who began singing jazz when she was accepted into the Australian National University’s Pre-Tertiary music program at age 15. Now 18, she has played Groovin the Moo twice, and performs regularly around Canberra using her looping pedal and ukulele to cover current and older popular music. She is also the lead singer for Canberra jazz band The Prisoners of Jazzkaban.
