Lucy’s music-writing career began with Don Maclean and Kirsty McColl as her major influences, embellished with the folk riffs of Peter, Paul and Mary and taking on the punchy riffs of traditional R and B. A period spent living and playing in New Orleans, sucking in the sounds and sights of that incredible history of music, has brought Lucy to her current style. Her name is now synonymous with the cross-border sound she calls Fop; the melodic middle ground where pop and folk meet, the toe-tapping interpretations of classic sounds and the harmony-heavy ballads that she pulls from modern rhythm and blues, turning the rattle of rap into sing-along folk-style numbers that are hard to forget.
The Last Night (Beer Fear) Songfacts reports that was announced in July 2011 as the runner up of the Urban, Pop & Acoustic category of Live and Unsigned. Spraggan independently released her debut album Top Room At The Zoo in November 2011, which was recorded earlier in the year in a friend's bedroom.
