If 2018 is anywhere near as eventful as the previous year, Lucy Spraggan is set for an interesting 12 months. The singer-songwriter netted her fourth top 40 albumin January last year,and followed that success with more than 22,000 ticket sales acrossher UK and European tours. I Hope You Don’t Mind Me Writingcharted at number 12 in the Official Top 40 Album Chart. The album, the second under her own label -CTRL Records -was described as ‘a triumph’byThe Sun.As well as more than 60 headline shows Lucy also performed at some of the UK’s most popular festivals, including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight Festival. Recognisedas one of the leading lights in the LGBT community, Spraggan has managed to build her fanbase into a far wider market.Lucy appeared on the X Factor in 2012, since then her audition video has been viewed more than 40 million times.She achieved the unprecedented success of securing a top 20 single (LastNight) and top 40 album (Top Room at the Zoo)while still competing on the TVshow.She was also themost googled musician of 2012.Lucy signed to Columbia and herdebut album Join the Clubwas a top-ten success. Her nextrecord,We Are,was releasedon her own labelafter Spraggan opted to take the independent route. The album charted at 22.Lucy’s music-writing career began with Don Maclean and Kirsty MacColl as her major influences, embellished with the folk narrativesof Peter, Paul and Mary,and taking on the punchy riffs of traditional R and B. Her name is now synonymous to themelodic middle ground where pop and acousticfolk meet. The toe-tapping interpretations of classic sounds and the harmony-heavy ballads that she pulls from modern rhythm and blues, are hard to forget.Spraggan’s trademark sound is the rattle of rap dropped into sing-along folk-style numbers.Spraggan has already announced some huge headline shows for October 2018, with shows at iconic venues such as Glasgow Barrowland, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Nottingham Rock City and Manchester Academy. After releasing four albums in five years Lucy is probably due a rest, but the writing process is already underway for album number 5, due for release in early 2019.

Bea Troxel
Bea Troxel started writing songs in the tenth grade about bad haircuts.

In High School she played in a band called Bea, Rita, and Maeve (named "Best High School Band of 2013" by the Nashville Scene). The trio won Studio 360's High School Battle of the Bands contest, and Thao Nguyen and Andrew W.K. covered Bea's song, "The River," as performed by Bea, Rita, and Maeve. Nguyen wrote of their music, saying there was a "subtlety and refinement in the musicianship."

Troxel played all through her time at Sewanee in southern TN, but she did not begin to seek out shows until she moved to Pennsylvania where she found herself in the midst of the Northeast DIY music scene. She opened for musicians such as Glenn Jones, Laura Baird, and Sons of an Illustrious Father, and organized her first tour through the Northeast in 2017. She recently moved back to Nashville and released her debut album, The Way That It Feels, in September. Since the album's release she has toured throughout the NE, played around Nashville, and was on official showcase artist at SXSW 2018.
