LUCY MAY BIOG
Lucy-May is a singer/songwriter from London. Brought up on 60’s Motown music you can definitely hear this in her soulful vocal infused with a retro yet new country vibe.

Lucy-May is an independent artist and totally self funded, holding down several jobs to make money for her music.
Lucy-May released her debut album ‘Whirlwind’ last year, and says ‘it was pretty surreal seeing my album in HMV on the recommended shelf, the day it was released I was on my lunch break at work when I went in and I literally had butterflies in my stomach and my eyes were full of tears. I was so proud.’
Tipped by Sir Terry Wogan to be the next big UK star after her first single ‘Paper Heart’ was play-listed on BBC Radio 2.
Since then she has had spot plays with her singles Whirlwind and We Got It being highly praised by d.j’s other than Wogan, such as Graham Norton, Vanessa Feltz & Ken Bruce and has been interviewed by Jo Whiley, Bob Harris & Baylen Leonard.
