Lucy Spraggan: TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY

Published

on

Lucy Spraggan is in a good place and wants to share it with the world as she releases her fifth studio album Today Was A Good Day on Cooking Vinyl. Lead single “Lucky Stars” has now had over half a million streams and is playlisted at Radio 2. You can find the album at all retail and digital outlets including Apple Music and Amazon Music.

Lucy kicked off her sold-out headline UK tour in Inverness, which follows the recent announcement that she will be playing Glastonbury for a second time. Lucy is the only X Factor contestant ever to be asked to play Glastonbury – and now she will be returning for a second time on The Avalon Stage. Lucy played The Acoustic Stage to a completely full tent in 2017 and describes the performance as a ‘life changing show’.

With over 50 million YouTube views, 240 million streams on Spotify and the most Googled musician of 2012 –Lucy started out as a singer-songwriter performing at open-mic nights around the country. At just 19 years old she took the brave decision to perform her self-penned hit “Last Night (Beer Fear)” on the X factor and secured a Top 20 single and Top 30 self-released album whilst still competing in the show. It’s since had had over 40 million views on YouTube.

Through relentless touring, her innate songwriting ability and an ever growing fanbase – Lucy has achieved an incredible 4 Top 30 albums (three of which were self-released) – the last of which went to number 12 – and now Lucy’s signed a new record and publishing deal with Cooking Vinyl. Today Was A Good Day marks a new chapter for Lucy musically and personally – her fifth studio album has been produced by Jon Maguire (Calum Scott, Kodaline) and Lucy sounds at her most confident and accomplished.

Last year, Lucy released “Stick The Kettle On” – the first track from the new album – in support of CALM – The Campaign Against Living Miserably and wanted to use her experiences to help others, this was recently used in a new episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Her knack for telling a story through her songs hasn’t changed and in the past it has earned her comparisons to Courtney Barnett, KT Tunstall and Ed Sheeran. This talent continues on the new album with tracks like “Connie’s Bar,” inspired by a woman she met in Florida; new single “Lucky Stars” and the poignant goodbye song “The Waiting Room” and “Home Wasn’t Built In A Day.”

After beginning the year as support for Melissa Etheridge across Europe and Scandinavia and playing SXSW -Lucy Spraggan now prepares for her own headline tour across the US and Europe, including her own 13-date UK headline tour.

Releasing this fifth album is proof of her enduring appeal.

To celebrate, Grayson has also released the music video for “Cherry Pits.” Of the “Cherry Pits” video, Grayson adds, “Finding my identity as an artist and a human has been a challenging and ongoing process. The video is a light hearted and a playful riff off of that – but I also think there’s importance behind the variety of emotions shown, and at times the intensity.”

Grayson is a non-binary American singer/songwriter who grew up in the Mormon Church. They have been singing in front of audiences since they were three years old. At seventeen they relocated to Seattle where they co-founded the indie synth-pop band NeuYouth.

A fashion chameleon who changes their look on a weekly basis- they are a social media darling, in-demand model, make-up artist, and fashion stylist. When not collaborating with sought after creatives on various projects they are recording music. Grayson currently resides in Los Angeles where they enjoy hikes in Elysian Park while trying to perfect their lifelong dream of whistling through their teeth.
