Introducing Lucy Rose

Maria Turauskis


Lucy Rose is a young singer-songwriter creating pleasant, consummate music that hovers on the boundary between pop and folk. She has had some significant interest bubbling away since she emerged as a performer in 2009. After a swift move to London from a particularly rural area of the Midlands when she was 19, Rose attracted the attention of the likes of Edith Bowman after a highly praised performance at the Union Chapel, and a demo video of her track Night Bus has accumulated over 300,000 views on YouTube, with little overt promotion. She has also developed a continuing friendship with alt-indie lads Bombay Bicycle Club, and has support them and even appeared as a guest vocalist on their track Flaws.

Unsurprisingly, as Rose is a singer-songwriter, her voice is the key focus in her music. She has a very sweet sound that is soft and feminine, fine and smooth with a dainty quality that subtly grabs your attention. Her vocal style is very similar to the likes of Ellie Goulding and Laura Marling, with great lyrics about both the simple and the profound, delicately executed with insight and sincerity. The musical accompaniment is interesting too though. Rose includes in her music a wealth of instruments including electric guitars, tuned percussion, violins, cello and piano. This all collects together to create an enjoyable and diverse folk-pop experience that is very worthy of your ears.

Lucy Rose has a number of festival dates lined-up for the summer, and she is also in the process of putting the finishing touches on her debut single, which is due for release soon.
