Lucy Spraggan wowed a student heavy crowd at Staffordshire University on Monday with her usual whit and observant lyrics on Monday night.
Her main hits like “Last Night” and “Tea and Toast” were complimented with songs about Jeremy Kyle and a meaningful new track about growing up.
The 25 year-old has just returned from touring Scotland in small capacity shows in the likes of Skye and Stornoway.
“I’m quite sad to be back in England,” the former X-Factor star joked.
“They were very small venues mainly of around 200 capacities as opposed to normal shows it was very different. It was so organic and nice, nothing about it felt contrived.
Since going on The X-Factor, Lucy has since expanded on her song writing with albums ‘Join The Club’ and ‘We Are,’ and says the next album is set for release in “late winter”
“It some very different songs on there, a new single will be released before then.
“There’s a song on their that I wrote when I was 15. I’ve written a song about dementia and another about growing up which will both be on the album.
“A lot of my older stuff was spoken word, my newer stuff has more melodies and hooks. The new album is a mixture of both.”
Spraggan played to a sell-out show at the nearby Sugarmill in February and returned to a place she has memories of.
“I’ve been drinking in Stoke before my friend came when she was 18, I remember going to Jumping Jacks in Hanley.”
Spraggan will now embark on a UK Tour next March titled the “Dear You” tour, tickets are on general sale.
