NEW MUSIC PROFILE - BLUES AND COUNTRY ARTIST "LUCY ZIRINS"
Lucy comes from Burnley in Lancashire and after a criticaly acclaimed debut album, "Chasing Clocks" in 2013 she followed this up with a 6 track E.P. in 2015 ("What's In Front Of Me") which includes the beautifully soulful "Falling To Pieces".
Gigging since the age of 16, playing guitar since 12, surely the time is right for Lucy to be thrust onto the big stages! The E.P. features her live touring band The Southern Company and is a mix of different styles such as Country and Blues.
The young singer songwriter has been nominated for the British Blues awards in several categories and won in 2013. Touring constantly Lucy graduated from BIMM London in 2017 studying for a BA in songwriting. A talented lady with the purest of sweet vocal comibining with some beautiful musical backing.
I actually was told by a friend of mine to look up Lucy as I said I was looking for new artists to review. I am glad I did, Lucy shows a maturity beyond her years both in songwriting and song composition. My favourites from the album are "Tearing Me Down" and "Lullaby", but the whole set is full of emotional and very mature tracks.
