No stranger to the spotlight, Sheffield -born singer/songwriter Lucy Spraggan was the first X-Factor contestant to have a Top 40 single and an album before the live shows began in 2012 and went on to have 5 Top 30 albums and to be the first female headliner of Kendall Calling Festival.
With a big Summer of festival bookings scheduled and lost for 2020, Lucy took the changes the pandemic wrought in her stride and focused on completing her latest album and launching her fitness brand.
Lucy starts 2021 with the release of her latest single, Animal from her brand new album Choices due for release on February 26th, inspired by a rich tapestry of life experiences, that have served in giving her the head space to mature and grow, both musically and personally.
