Lucy has been touring solidly as a solo artist for 5 years now, and the forming of The Lucy Ward band is an opportunity for her to spread her wings and try something new. Her own unique brand of performance and audience connection will remain firmly in place but for the first time ‘live’ you will be able to hear the strength of Lucy’s musicality and her natural ability to arrange music. Or as Lucy so ably put it:

‘It’s all the stuff I can hear when I write a song, but don’t have enough arms to play!’

So there you have it! Lucy will still be performing solo, and will continue to enjoy the intimacy and authenticity of these gigs; but for now she is really looking forward to cutting loose with a group of fantastic musicians and sharing her music with you.
