Lucy Rose's new single, Red Face, will be released on February 27th 2012 through Fauna Records. Her highly anticipated debut album will be released in the summer of 2012. Lucy will be setting out on a UK tour in March 2012, supporting Noah and the Whale. She will headline the Jazz CafÃ© in London on February 4th, 2012.
Born in Warwickshire, Lucy left home at eighteen and travelled to London. After playing in innumerable open mic nights, she met Jack Steadman in 2009, better known as the frontman of Bombay Bicycle Club. Lucy's vocals can be heard on the 2010 album Flaws and on the 2011 album A Different Kind of Fix.
Soon after, Lucy's video for Night Bus went viral, receiving over 600,000 hits in a short space of time. Red Face got huge support from Radio 1 DJs Huw Stephens - who debuted the song on the station - and Fearne Cotton, who played the track on her show to acclaim from her listeners.
Lucy has since moved back to her home in Warwickshire, where she has set up a makeshift recording studio in her parent's basement to record her debut album, with the help of producer Charlie Hugall.
