Folk-pop singer to play Brighton


Lucy May Walker plays The Brunswick in Hove on October 29 as her diary suddenly starts filling up again.

“I have gone from no gigs to lots of gigs, which is great! I am really grateful for that,” says Lucy May.

“And fingers crossed that we are now back for good.

“I think there are still quite a lot of people that are nervous about coming out to gigs, and I guess people will just make that decision once they are comfortabl­e.

“I go to lots of gigs so I will just carry on taking lateral-flow tests and all the precaution­s just to make sure I feel comfortabl­e myself going out, and if you are feeling confident, I just hope you will come along to one of my gigs!”

Folk-pop singer/ songwriter Lucy May is based in London. Her debut EP Heartbreak Songs reachednum­berthreeon­the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart, receiving numerous plays on BBC Introducin­g across the Midlands. After being discovered busking by Jeremy Vine, Lucy May was invited to perform live on his BBC Radio 2 show as well as his Channel 5 TV show.

“I have been in the business years and years,” she says. “I am originally from Worcesters­hire and I went to uni and from there I moved to London seven years ago. I have been doing music for about eight years.

“I started doing singing and dancing and acting at uni and then I started doing my own songs.

“I did cover songs for years before that. I used to listen to BBC Live Lounge where people take any song and make it their own.”
