In 2017 Lucy released her latest album, I Hope You Don’t Mind Me Writing, which charted at number 12 in the Official Top 40 Album Chart. As well as more than 60 headline shows in 2017 and netting her fourth top 40 album, Lucy also performed at some of the UK’s most popular festivals, including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight Festival. Recognised as one of the leading lights in the LGBT community, Spraggan has managed to build her fanbase into a far wider market.
Now signed to Cooking Vinyl worldwide, her name is synonymous to the melodic middle ground where pop and acoustic folk meet. The toe-tapping interpretations of classic sounds and the harmony-heavy ballads that she pulls from modern rhythm and blues, are hard to forget. Spraggan’s trademark sound is the rattle of rap dropped into sing-along folk-style numbers.
Spraggan announced some huge headline shows for October 2018, with shows at iconic venues such as Glasgow Barrowland, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Nottingham Rock City and Manchester Academy.
After releasing four albums in five years Lucy is probably due a rest, but the writing process is already underway for album number 5, due for release in early 2019.
