Teller taught herself guitar at the age of thirteen and soon after that began writing songs. At the age of sixteen Teller started guitar lessons with Rick Hayes, a member of the bluegrass band Nightflyer and producer of Hayes Productions Recording Studio. After he began teaching her, Hayes discovered that Teller was a songwriter and that she wanted to record her own music. Teller soon began recording at his studio.
In October of 2015, Teller released her debut EP- Lucy Teller. The EP features four original songs and one cover of an Amos Lee song.
Lucy Teller is based both in Cincinnati and in Irving, Texas.
