Payin' Dues: Lucy Zirins
Burnley’s lady of the blues moves south and writes about her big leap to London.
“I GUESS I’D be Bonnie Raitt or Susan Tedeschi for a day,” says singer-songwriter Lucy in answer to who she’d like to emulate. Like them, she’s firmly rooted in blues, but her musical scope is broad. Take her recent EP, What’s In Front Of Me, which also draws on country and folk. “The EP gave me a chance to explore different sounds and genres,” she says. “It gave us an idea of how we want the next album to sound.”
