Lucy Kitt pulls off the trickiest of challenges for the singer-songwriter; she’s successfully developed (or perhaps been blessed with) a unique, yet timeless, sound. Her blend of folk, rock and country blues owes much to the warmth of the 70s but is also unmistakeably of its time.
Beginning her musical career as guitarist in all-girl grunge band ‘Ostara’, the band quickly became established in their home county of Essex, in the UK. Following the split of ‘Ostara’ Lucy’s love for acoustic and folk took hold and she embarked on her solo career, taking inspiration from the likes of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and Sandy Denny.
Recognition for her songwriting and performance skills saw her reach the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2007. Beyond the UK, Lucy has fans across Europe and USA; having performed in Sweden and Switzerland, and organised her own mini-tour of North California, Lucy continues to spread her music far and wide. With radio airplay in Australia as well as the UK, and famous fans including the likes of anti-folk hero Billy Bragg, exposure of Lucy’s music is fast catching up her exceptional talent.
