Folk & Roots at Independent Venue Week Present Lucy Grubb
Doors: 7:30 pm
Lucy Grubb is a singer/songwriter from Norwich blending modern Americana with Country undertones.
Inspired by the likes of Johnny Cash, Lucy’s understated guitar rhythms and Country trilled vocal melodies hark back to tried and tested traditional Country song writing, expressing grief, sorrow and heartbreak. Although lacking life experience, Lucy takes her own emotional turmoil and communicates it through gripping lyrical content and storytelling. “One cannot help but wonder where some of those lyrics are coming from, she’s obviously another ‘old soul’ with a huge talent for expressive songwriting.” – Richard Shashamane
With nods to songwriter Paul Simon, Lucy focuses on writing about the truth in a way that sets her apart from other songwriters. Like Simon, Lucy often likes to add a spin to the tone of her lyrics, sometimes witty or sarcastic to enhance the storytelling experience. Ultimately what makes her songs stand out is the ability to take them and create meaning unique to the individual. In 2014 Lucy made her debut appearance on BBC Introducing in Norfolk, followed by a performance at Open for BBC Radio 1’s Academy in conjunction with BBC Introducing in 2016. Later that year, Lucy supported folk singer/songwriter Lucy Rose at Norwich Arts Centre for Norwich Sound & Vision.
In 2017, Lucy went on to play a host of UK festivals including Glastonbury, Red Rooster and Latitude, and recorded her debut EP.
