Lucinda is the daughter of Miller Williams, who was a poet and literature professor, and his wife, Lucille Fern Day, a pianist, but who didn’t have much success in professional waters and therefore remained an amateur. Lucinda has younger brother and sister, Robert and Karyn Elizabeth, with whom she shared the house following their parents’ divorce. The Williams children remained with Miller, who had spina bifida, and Lucinda was unlucky to inherit this degeneration of the spinal cord. From an early age, Lucinda showed that she has a creative mind, as she started writing songs when she was only six years old, and by the time she was 12 she was playing guitar. Five years later, she made her debut live appearance, alongside her friend, Clark Jones, a banjo player. Little by little, Lucinda improved and in her early 20s she was already known in Austin and Houston, as a folk-rock-country artist. She then settled in Jackson, Mississippi, and the next step was a recording contract with Smithsonian/Folkways Records, and a debut studio album “Ramblin’ on My Mind” (1978), which featured only covers of country and blues songs. Two years later, Lucinda released her second album “Happy Woman Blues”, which was comprised of her own songs, but both albums failed to achieve success.

She then left Jackson, living for a short time in Los Angeles, California, before eventually settling in Nashville, Tennessee. There, she started performing acoustically with other bands and musicians, building a fan base and reputation. Eight years after her second album, Lucinda released self-titled her third album, which became a turning point in her career; the single “Changed the Locks” became popular, and was later covered by Tom Petty.

In 1992, Lucinda released her next album “Sweet Old World”, which received positive critiques, but the album lacked commercial success. Regardless, Lucinda continued with her career, and in 1998 released “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road”, which won her a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album, achieved gold status in the USA, and is her best-selling album so far, with close to a million copies sold; this increased her wealth to a large degree.

She accustomed her fans to wait on her new recordings, and it was like that again, as her next album came out in 2001, entitled “Essence”, which peaked at No. 28 on the Billboard 200 chart, and won her Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for the single “Get Right with God”. She continued to produce music, and in 2003 released her follow-up “World Without Tears”, which reached No. 18 on the Billboard 200 chart, but her next album didn’t go out until 2007, although meantime she collaborated with several other musicians, including Flogging Molly, Elvis Costello, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott among others. Then in 2007 she released “West” and went on a tour featuring such musicians as Mike Campbell, Greg Dulli, Emmylou Harris, David Johansen and Steve Earle among others. The next year she released her ninth studio album “Little Honey”, a digression from her usual two-three years between albums; it was another album that received positive critiques, and also a Grammy Award- nomination and became her highest-charting album, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart. However, the sales again didn’t reach the margin she had expected, but still, it increased her wealth.

Since 2010, Lucinda has released four more studio albums, including “Blessed”, and “The Ghosts of Highway 20”, with the latter receiving universal acclaim with a score of 83 from 19 reviews.

Regarding her personal life, Lucinda has been married to Tom Overby since 2009. Previously, she was married to Greg Sowders.

Back in 2008, during her concert in Santa Cruz, the mayor of the city announced that 6th September will become Lucinda Williams Day in Santa Cruz, from 2008 onwards.

1[on writing songs] It's so cathartic and therapeutic that it's a relief. I'm relieved when I finally get it done because I got it out.
2I'm always coming up with ideas that have been inspired by memories, everyday life and this and that and the other. Sometimes I might borrow something from a song I started a long time ago and see if I can grab something. I keep it all. You never know when you may need one of those lines.
