Lucia Cifarelli (born September 23, 1970) is an American vocalist and occasional keyboardist, best known for her work with industrial metal group KMFDM. She was formerly the vocalist for the band Drill and also performed in KMFDM offshoots MDFMK, KGC, and Schwein.
Lucia got her start recording in studios in New York, eventually forming her own band, Drill, along with future Black Label Society bass guitarist John DeServio, which released one self-titled album, spawning two music videos and getting a third song featured in the movie Empire Records. Later in 1995, Drill toured opening for Stabbing Westward's Wither, Blister, Burn, and Peel Tour. The band broke up shortly after the end of the tour.
Lucia would join the KMFDM hiatus band, MDFMK, in 2000. The project lasted for one self-titled album. In 2001, Lucia and Sascha Konietzko worked on the "supergroup" Schwein and its albums Schweinstein and the subsequent remix album, Son of Schweinstein. After the MDFMK project was discontinued, Lucia was asked to return as a member of KMFDM. She has been a member of the band since 2002's Attak. She recorded one solo album, From the Land of Volcanos. One single off the album, "I Will", appeared on the American Pie 2 soundtrack. Cifarelli performed on the band KGC's 2006 album, Dirty Bomb.
In July 2005, she married KMFDM founder and producer Sascha Konietzko. They have one daughter.
