Lucy's a talented songwriter, singer, and musician. Her gigs in the Pussy Parlure and Gully Stage in both 2015 and 2017 were so entertaining, she got the whole audience singing. A real pleasure! Her songs are smart, intelligent and funny. Lucy interacts with her audience so naturally and her voice is beautiful and unique, different, like someone you remember such as the likes of Billie Holiday or Amy Winehouse. We look forward to her return.
