Katy Lueck is an emerging filmmaker & singer/songwriter based in New York City.
Lueck originated in the business as an actor/singer and found her way into directing/producing by means of creating her own material for personal reel footage. Through the process of creating these microfilms for self-promotion purposes, she discovered a real knack for directing and development, from inception through post-production. She is a natural leader with a strong, cinematic vision behind the camera and ease in front of the camera. Lueck believes in films that bring sharp attention to everyday life, creating evocative moments out of seemingly banal details. Her body of work focuses to embody and explore the woman’s perspective and represent those stories that are not always given the opportunity to be told in the mainstream media.
Heavily influenced by folk and rock of the 1970s--an era she came to love through pillaging her father's vinyl collection--her music seamlessly blends sounds of the past with the present. A world traveler and award-winning filmmaker, Lueck has a passion for perspective. Her songs eschew standard pop form in favor of a more poetic stream of consciousness, energized by the roads she’s walked and the people who have shaped her experience. With guitar that evokes longing and movement, her soulful voice floats above and below, drawing the listener into her calm force.
