I bought to satisfy and work with some unimaginable musicians. The response has been so nice – I adore it when individuals ship me a message and inform me what their favorite half is!! And particularly when individuals inform me it provides them a nostalgic form of feeling, which is actually one of many issues I need to present by my music. As for inspiration, it’s a challenge that displays all features of my life. The album is known as ‘Music’, as a result of it’s the one factor that may get me by something. So, each single music I wrote on this album is basically private in that sense.

In regard to the sound, I actually wished this album to sound just like the one style that makes me really feel probably the most excited and ‘at dwelling’. The unimaginable Aubrey Johnson informed me final week, that while you’re trying to find your sound, it’s worthwhile to take into consideration the kind of music you grew up listening to, as that’s what shapes you into you. For me, ever since I used to be slightly child, I went to rock concert events on a regular basis. Billy Idol, Bon Jovi, Queen, Blondie, and so forth; this was the sound that formed my childhood. I feel that being at a reside rock live performance is not like the rest on the planet – there isn’t any higher feeling. So, I hope that after my listeners hear the album, that’s what it seems like for them – that they’ve skilled that form of Rock N Roll. I’m very grateful that I had an unimaginable band – Phil, Gabe and Aiden, who additionally occur to be individuals which can be tremendous near me, deliver my tales and music to life. It was probably the most lovely course of, and I’m tremendous grateful for everybody that’s helped me and supported me alongside the way in which.

It’s the form of sound that I’ve been trying to find, for the longest time. Lyrically, it’s about having a particular music with somebody, and the way it brings you again to precisely the way you felt the primary time you heard it, each time. Nonetheless, different songs like ‘Over The Summer season’ and ‘Evaluate To You’ imply so much to me as nicely – particularly ‘Evaluate To You’, it’s actually such a susceptible second for me on the album.

Llewelyn: Lyrically, we actually like your storytelling and you actually allow us to into your present mindset. Do you’re feeling that writing is changing into simpler for you over time?

Lucy: Thanks a lot!! I feel that as an artist I’m repeatedly attempting to enhance and develop, and it’s a course of that comes naturally as you mature and expertise new issues. With this album, I used to be in a position to utterly write precisely what I used to be feeling for every music. I do assume that songwriting is one thing that’ll come extra naturally, the extra you expertise. So, as you develop up, and as you meet individuals and expertise issues like heartbreak and love, the songwriting will replicate that. It’s virtually unattainable to jot down a music that doesn’t present your present frame of mind, as you possibly can’t misinform your self in your songwriting. Not less than I can’t. However I’m hoping to proceed to enhance my storytelling, there’s undoubtedly a variety of room for enchancment!

I solely have a 12 months and a half left, and I’ll be ending up and graduating!! Positively attempting to absorb each single second, as I do know it received’t be lengthy till I graduate. It goes so shortly; I can nonetheless bear in mind beginning my first day right here so clearly. I feel the spotlight of the Con to date has undoubtedly been assembly individuals and having the ability to develop into the musician I’m immediately. The Con undoubtedly has a really excessive customary, and I feel that’s a superb factor – I’ve pushed myself exterior my consolation zone so many instances and it’s been so useful. The musician that I used to be once I first auditioned, and the musician that I’m now – two fully totally different individuals. It’s been so loopy. Hopefully I can proceed to develop main as much as my commencement.

With the ability to reside like a scholar there, even when it was for per week, was simply probably the most surreal expertise ever. The individuals and academics that you simply meet, are probably the most superb. The vibe is certainly a spotlight – you’re surrounded by probably the most formidable, artistic individuals and it evokes you to develop into a greater artist.
