Ethereal, hypnotic and haunting are some of the words used to describe the music and voice of Lucy Kitchen. A self-confessed ‘folky bird’ citing influences from the likes of Joni Mitchell, Mazzy Star, Laura Veirs, Neil Young and Nick Drake, she released her album ‘Waking’ on her label ‘Bohemia Rose Records’. Described as a delicately crafted acoustic album of folk ballads, the album has received radio plays in the UK, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy and the US. Last year saw her perform at Glastonbury among other festivals and a number of shows around the South.
‘Lucy’s vocal tone has hints of the late Sandy Denny in it – a rare and precious thing indeed’ (bestnewbands.com)
‘Without doubt ‘Waking’ gains strength with each play, revealing more of itself every time.’ (Folkwords – http://www.folkwords.com/latestreviews_90385.html)

She has collaborated with The Part Time Heroes (with whom she did a live session at Maidavale studios for Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide show) and last year with Technimatic (Shogun Audio) on their album ‘Desire Paths’ (Winner of ‘Best Album’ at the National Drum & Bass Awards and no. 8 in Mixmag’s albums of the year – ‘The best album in the genre for years’). This year has seen releases with Technimatic, Sub Zero (Playaz), Gerra & Stone (Dispatch Recordings) and Mystic State (Flexout Audio).
