“Lucy Rose is absolutely outstanding!” Edith Bowman, Radio 1
After months hidden away in her parents’ basement recording debut album Like I Used To (released on Monday 24th September), Lucy Rose is happy to announce an extensive UK & Ireland headline tour this autumn. The news comes as Lucy Rose’s new single ‘Bikes’ (out Sunday 16th September) racks up the plays across radio, and the spectacular, hell-raising video nears half a million plays on YouTube just a week after it was published.
Having gained a status and fan-base most new artists can only dream of long before her recent signing to Columbia Records, the young Lucy Rose is now able to sell out 1000-capacity venues with ease, and indeed, her first in-store at Rough Trade East last November was so oversubscribed that 50 latecomers were stuck outside.
Lucy’s journey began when she hopped on a train to London, leaving behind the house she would return to years later to record ‘Like I Used To’. Striking out for the big city and the big time, armed with an acoustic guitar and an unstoppable dedication, Lucy played every open-mic night imaginable. She met people on the way who are still with her now and with their support and her graft she learned the ropes. As her songs and sentiments spread their warmth through the iciest of hearts, Her debut album is a confessional of disarming intimacy and candid truth. To quote the Daily Star: “So simpleshe makes Adele look try-hard.”
