Taking inspiration from a number of different genres allows him to write songs that people can relate to no matter what their relationship with Country music. He draws on sounds from 70’s and 80’s rock, Old School Southern Rock and newer Country Music to write meaningful songs that audiences respond to. Some parodies of American Country life can be heard cleverly intertwined in the writing as well. “Ain’t Quite a Truck” is a perfect example.
Coming from a family of record store owners, Lucy has always had an appreciation for music that looked beyond genre labels. It was in Country music that Lucy's voice truly felt at home, but as she began her journey as a songwriter she never lost her passion for, and inspirations from Rock, Pop, Soul and Blues. With influences spanning Linda Ronstadt, Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow and Kelly Clarkson, Lucy effortlessly blends traditional and modern sounds to create music that appeals to fans of all genres and eras. Her live shows are energetic and engaging, perfectly displaying her relatable, witty, and nuanced songwriting. Her career continues to go from strength to strength, and if asked, Lucy would say this is down to one important factor: That she is, first and foremost, a dedicated music fan.
