In the search for touchstones Lucy is often compared to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Beth Orton and, vocally, to Sandy Denny – ‘Lucy’s vocal tone has hints of the late Sandy Denny in it – a rare and precious thing indeed’ (bestnewbands.com), but her sound is all her own.
Sun to My Moon opens with the track of the same name, a call for a lover ‘Sun to my moon, rain in my sea, I called out for you, the wind carried you to me’, followed by the crashing, swirling emotion of ‘Searching for Land’. ‘Lovers in Blue’ features stunning strings, and the ethereal ‘Summer Queen’ builds from delicate piano and acoustic guitar to full band and back again. She says of the album “There’s a theme of loss but how, within that, love somehow pulls us through. There’s also I guess for me the vibe that I veer towards the moon – the darker, questioning side and a lot of the songs on the album have come out of a hard couple of years personally but also within that amazing things have happened as a result.”
