This singer-songwriter, cellist and pianist hails from the north of England but she’s not very brash, she’s bright, and rather deep...
She’s been writing songs forever, but went the classical orchestra choir route for the bulk of her life, studying music until she had two degrees and a proper job. She then worked in music-related fields, sometimes reviewing other musicians’ albums and keenly feeling a certain amount of professional jealousy along the way.
When she wasn’t doing this, she was singing in bands, which either imploded with mental health issued bangs, or faded with little whimpers.
Having just recorded her first CD, Lucy Jane writes quietly powerful, spacious twisting songs about the internal life of others. She performs and records with talented Danny Thompson soundalike double bassist Peter Marsh, and their music feels touched by Lou Rhodes, Emiliana Torrini, and Debussy.
