Rising British music star at the Queens Hall, Narberth – catch her while you can!
If you missed out on the sell-out performance by local girl Jodie Marie, make sure you don’t miss Lucy Rose. Fresh from supporting Noah and the Whale on tour, Lucy Rose, the 22-year old rising star of the acoustic folk-pop world, hailed by Vogue as “one of indie music’s breakout stars of 2012”, plays at the Queens Hall, Narberth on 31ST May. This will be a unique opportunity to catch the elfin songstress at the beginning of a long and prominent career so follow the advice of Direct Current Music and “get on board now”’.
Formerly the voice behind the stunning Bombay Bicycle club, with whom she toured the UK, USA and Canada, Lucy has gone solo and is performing her own songs with “a voice that could melt the stoniest of hearts” (Q Magazine). She is described by The Sunday Times (Culture) as “One of the country’s most promising new voices” who, according to NME, “Kicking up a storm in her own right.”
Three singles in, at the tender age of 22, Lucy Rose’s star firmly in the ascendant, A mixture of true grit, sheer dedication and an unshakeable sense of self has all lead Lucy to the kind of status that most new artists dream of but can only achieve through record company clout Lucy Rose has had none of this but her heart-stoppingly poignant songs and cracked porcelain voice see her entering 2012 with Youtube hits, radio plays and crowds like nobody else out there. ‘
Along with press accolades, including her first ever front cover in January 2012 for The Fly and new band features in The Sunday Times (Culture), NME, Daily Mirror, and Music Week, Lucy Rose has been clocking up the airplay counts too. A Record of the Week and playlist at 6 Music for last single Scar, Radio 4 featured artist on Loose Ends, Radio 2 spot plays and session confirmations, as well as round the clock plays from every specialist DJ at Radio 1 for her singles Middle of the Bed and Scar, including daytime spins from Fearne Cotton, show it’s not just the press getting excited about Lucy Rose.
Lucy’s journey began, when she hopped on a train to London leaving behind the house in which she grew up in rural Warwickshire and struck out for the big city and the big time. Armed with an acoustic guitar and an unstoppable dedication, Lucy played every open-mic 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, Lucy became that most modern of phenomenon; she went ‘viral’. Her biggest video has clocked up over 600,000 views and on average her sessions and videos are receiving 250,000 views each.
Feedback from the exclusive debut play of her third single, Red Face. Huw Stephens on Radio 1 already suggests an exciting departure and growth from her trademark vocal delivery in her soon to be released album.
"Absolutely outstanding. A brilliant, brilliant voice..." Edith Bowman, Radio 1
