A BROMSGROVE singer-songwriter has made it through one of the UK’s toughest talent competitions, Stripped Back – designed to unveil ‘the best acoustic artists’ in the country.
The 18-year-old head girl from Waseley Hills High School made it through the first two rounds of the competition including the judges’ vote on the final 15 talents.
Radio 1 DJ Huw Stevens who was one of the judges said Lucy’s performance was ‘effortless and really charming’.
The singer’s final song ‘Gunshots’ was written about a world devoid of warfare and about the want of a peaceful society regardless of gender, age, race and ethnicity.
She said: “I was inspired to write it because of current issues such as the existence of extremist groups and gang violence.
She added: “I am so lucky to have got this far but now I really need people to support me by logging into the competition site through their Facebook or email and vote for my song.”
Lucy also won last year’s GT Records Young Entertainer of the Year award.
Talented both on and off the stage, when she’s not singing, she’s playing football as a centre-forward and has been a top scorer for the last ten years.
Lucy continues to perform live gigs at venues across Birmingham, including the Rainbow Room, Sunflower Lounge, The Crown and at local festivals and open mic events.
