With heartfelt lyrics and Country undertones, Lucy focuses on telling you the unadulterated truth about a girl who was born and raised in a town not built for Country music.
Inspired by the likes of Johnny Cash, Lucy's understated guitar rhythms and Country trilled vocal melodies hark back to tried and tested traditional Country song writing, expressing grief, sorrow and heartbreak. Although lacking life experience, Lucy takes her own emotional turmoil and communicates it through gripping lyrical content and storytelling. “One cannot help but wonder where some of those lyrics are coming from, she’s obviously another ‘old soul’ with a huge talent for expressive songwriting.” - Richard Shashamane
With nods to songwriter Paul Simon, Lucy focuses on writing about the truth in a way that sets her apart from other songwriters. Like Simon, Lucy often likes to add a spin to the tone of her lyrics, sometimes witty or sarcastic to enhance the storytelling experience. Ultimately what makes her songs stand out is the ability to take them and create meaning unique to the individual.
In 2014 Lucy made her debut appearance on BBC Introducing in Norfolk, followed by a performance at Open for BBC Radio 1’s Academy in conjunction with BBC Introducing in 2016. Later that year, Lucy supported folk singer/songwriter Lucy Rose at Norwich Arts Centre for Norwich Sound & Vision and formed her band Lucy Grubb & The Lost Boys.
After a great start to 2017 supporting her fellow Country peers Morganway and Sam Coe & the Long Shadows, Lucy went on to play a host of UK festivals including Glastonbury, Red Rooster and Latitude.
Accompanied by a sold out show in Norwich, Lucy released her debut EP '18 Miles' in November 2017, winning 'Best UK EP of the Year' and being named 'One to Watch' by Belles and Gals. "Listening to Lucy, you really get the feeling that this is an artist who is doing it her way – it’s country, with a touch of folk, without ever feeling the need to conform 100% to either." - Nick Cantwell
In April 2018 Lucy won 'The Bury Songwriter's Competition 2018' for her track '18 Miles' and released a Music Video.
Lucy has set her sights on breaking into the Country/Americana scene, recording her next record for Summer 2018 and heading to Nashville 'in the near distant future'.
