Once pegged as 2012’s guaranteed breakout star by Vogue, Lucy Rose has instead gone for the slow build.
Over the past half-decade you might have heard her work on Girls and The Vampire Diaries, and seen her touring with the likes of Noah and the Whale. Fleeing the major-label system after 2015’s underperforming sophomore release, Work It Out, the English artist decided to shake things up, decamping to South America.
Two months of free shows and meeting fans in Peru, Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina, and Mexico would give her a renewed lust for life, leading to the creation of 2016’s triumphant Something’s Changing—a record packed with rainy-day reveries like “Is This Called Home”.
Sad? Lucy Rose (at Venue on Saturday [March 10]) is indeed that at times, but in the most uplifting and inspiring of ways.
