Her ‘heart stoppingly poignant songs and cracked porcelain voice’ have won the young singer/songwriter an exponential army of fans, and seen her support Bombay Bicycle Club, Noah & the Whale and Counting Crows; as well as taking on headline tours of the UK, Europe, North America & Canada.
Back in Birmingham for the last gig of a 21 date UK tour, running through April and May, Lucy Rose is still riding the widely respected wave of her debut album – ‘Like I Used To’.
Released in Sept 2012, ‘Like I Used To’ reached No13 in the UK album charts – unleashing 5 singles prior to the LP.
Moving away from her Warwickshire home and impending further education, Lucy Rose cut her teeth playing at ‘every open mike night imaginable’ on London’s fickle gig circuit.
Building her fan base the old fashioned way, or as old fashioned as you can be in the age of social/digital media, Lucy Rose amassed significant support from her live shows and YouTube releases. So much so, that in 2012 (after a smattering of self releases) the major labels came courting – with Rose eventually signing to Columbia in Sept the same year.
