With an eclectic mix of folk rock and country blues, Lucy Kitt is fast developing a growing fan-base throughout the UK and beyond with her self-penned acoustic songs. All of us here at LCM are fans of Lucy's music, so much so that we have her song 'Laurel Canyon' as our group theme music.
As a guitarist and performer in all girl Grunge band 'Ostara', the band quickly became established as well known musicians in their hometown of Romford & Upminster in Essex. It was moving to Kent for University after the split of ′Ostara′ that Lucy's love for acoustic and folk took hold. Lucy naturally began taking inspiration from the likes of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Sandy Denny and music from her parents influential collection of 70′s sounds. Beginning as a solo performer, Lucy soon became a feature on the Canterbury music scene and has been a respected local talent ever since. Recognition for her songwriting saw her reach the semi finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 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 air play in Australia as well as back home, and famous fans from the likes of anti-folk hero Billy Bragg, exposure of Lucy′s music is fast catching up her exceptional talent.
Despite her South-East England upbringing, Lucy's creative soul most definitely lies across the pond; with LA’s Laurel Canyon bearing great influence on her warmly mellow sound. The folky edge that dominates the character of her music brings to mind the work of artists such as Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, as well as incorporating an earthier country vibe. (EmergingIcons.com)
