Interview: Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose

lucy roseShe might not have a record to promote right now but singer songwriter Lucy Rose is still keeping her fans busy by throwing them a few shows in support of Oxjam. Lucy will play at the Arts Club in association with Oxjam Liverpool Takeover on October 16th and then will play a show for Oxjam Dalston the next day.

Popped caught up with Lucy ahead of her almost sold out show in Liverpool.

PM: You have been supporting Oxjam since the early days of your career and continue to do so. What is it about the festival that is so important to you?

LR: Oxjam is obviously a fantastic charity and I love how Oxjam has bought music in to help raise money. I guess I love the simplicity, ask a band to play a gig for free and all the money raised goes to a brilliant charity. Anyone can get involved and help.

PM: You have a huge fan base in Liverpool, having previously sold out the o2 Academy in recent years, what is it about this city that you love and why you decided to come back for this gig?

LR: Liverpool is always an especially good crowd and I great city to come and visit. I remember early on having one of my favourite gigs of all time there and since then I’ve looked forward to coming back each time.

PM: You’re headed out on tour with The Counting Crows. How do shows like this come about for you and what are you most looking forward to on this tour?

LR: We toured with them last year and got on really well, they are great guys and also so encouraging. It’s great to be on tour with a band you connect with and I’m so excited we get to go on the road with them again.

PM: Which of your tracks are your favourite to perform live and does this change often?

LR: They often change, normally new ones or rockier ones, sometimes the quiet ones are hard if it’s a noisy crowd but sometimes the softer songs can be the most special.

PM: Do you pay attention to music awards such as The Mercury Prize and if so who would get your vote to win for this year?  If not why not?

LR: I definitely pay attelucy rose oxjamntion, I’m always so interested in who’s been nominated and it shows me albums that I haven’t always heard of. Bombay Bicycle Club would obviously be getting my vote.

PM: Who is on your mp3 player right now that you want to shout about?

LR: Love Annie Eve’s new album, loving Warpaint, Chet Faker and Future Islands.

PM: What advice do you have for other singer songwriters like yourself who are looking to have a career in music?

LR: Determination, don’t give up.

PM: Can you tell us anything about your music plans for 2015?

LR: I’m hoping to have an album out next year, fingers crossed.
