In her two decades of existence, Lucy’s been in rap groups, worked as a magician, trained as a plumber, travelled across America, been a tour guide in a cave, fallen from a cherry picker and had ‘Olly Murs’ tattooed onto her foot. She even studied Buddhism in Scotland. But now she’s ready to focus on music; her new album, a fusion of acoustic, folk and hip hop, is a collection of songs that’ll one minute bring you to tears, and the next make you feel like a fool for being so emo.

She visited the Limelight 2 in Belfast on Friday night with support from Kal Lavelle. Our photographer Paul Woods captured the night in photo.
