If 2018 is anywhere near as eventful as the previous year, Lucy Spraggan is set for an interesting 12 months.
The singer-songwriter netted her fourth top 40 album in January last year, and followed that success with more than 22,000 ticket sales across her UK and European tours.
As well as more than 60 headline shows Lucy also performed at some of the UK’s most popular festivals, including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight Festival. Recognised as one of the leading lights in the LGBT community, Spraggan has managed to build her fanbase into a far wider market.
Lucy’s music-writing career began with Don Maclean and Kirsty MacColl as her major influences, embellished with the folk narratives of Peter, Paul and Mary, and taking on the punchy riffs of traditional R and B.
Her name is now synonymous to the melodic middle ground where pop and acoustic folk meet. The toe-tapping interpretations of classic sounds and the harmony-heavy ballads that she pulls from modern rhythm and blues, are hard to forget. Spraggan’s trademark sound is the rattle of rap dropped into sing-along folk-style numbers.
