PREVIEW: Lucy Rose @ Hare & Hounds, Thurs 14th June

Close enough to call one of our own, Lucy Rose left her Warwickshire home in 2009 to read Geography at University College London.

Distracted by a new city’s gig scene, she took her acoustic guitar through the pubs and clubs of our nation’s capital; amassing significant support from her performances on stage and online.

Also gathering peer plaudits, Lucy Rose was invited to sing backing vocals on Bombay Bicycle’s second album, ‘Flaws’. She also contributed to their third album, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’.

With a strong fan base, much garnered from her online presence, Lucy Rose then released three singles ; ‘Middle of the Bed’, ‘Red Face’ and ‘Scar’ – the latter featuring Bombay Bicycle Club frontman, Jack Steadman, returning the backing vocal favour.

Now, in 2012,her profile continues to rise; having supported Bombay Bicycle Club and Noah & the Whale across the UK, US and Canada – in February and March.

Lucy Rose also signed to Columbia Records in May, and began her first UK headline tour the same month; coming to the Hare & Hounds in Birmingham on June 14th, and finishing at Bestival on the Isle of White on September 7th.

Lucy Rose is currently working on and recording her debut album. A release date has not been confirmed.


Birmingham Promoters & Miss Perry Presents… Lucy Rose, at the Hare & Hounds, Birmingham, on Thursday June 14th.
