With her star firmly in the ascendant, Warwickshire songstress Lucy Rose is starting to get mainstream press attention and clocking up airplay counts.

Signed to Columbia Records and still only at the tender age of 23, Lucy is being tipped by the great and the good as the one New British Artist who may be around for a good while to come.

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 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.

She has contributed vocals on the Bombay Bicycle Club albums, Flaws and A Different Kind of Fix and her solo debut album, Like I Used To was released in September 2012.

Her videos counts are now in the millions as news spreads far and wide.

Music-News.com caught up with Lucy at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas after she has just come off stage at the British Embassy venue Latitude 30.
