It’s always refreshingly uplifting when an artist emerges from the crowds of trend following upstarts with both a powerful sound and message, especially in the case of the latter when it focuses on the antiquated stance of society.
Southeast London’s Lucy Mair is an emerging singer-songwriter clearly not shy of tackling stricture on latest track Being Pretty Was Fun.
“I wrote this song when I was completely fed up of being told how to look or what to eat. I felt I needed to write a song that vented my frustration and encompassed my thoughts on popular culture’s gender stereotyping and its obsession with beauty.”
Pulling inspiration from artists that have gone down in the history books for their impact on music, Lucy fuses illustrious jazzy sounds with contemporary concepts for a true standout modern pop triumph.
