Lucy Rose launches 'Vote For Your Hometown' gig project
Story by Jack Foley
AS PART of her continuing quest to play live for as many of her fans as possible, all around the world, Lucy Rose has launched a Bandsquare project where fans have the opportunity to vote for Lucy to play a show in their hometown.
The project is open to anyone anywhere in the world, all fans need to do is simply head to Lucy’s Bandsquare page here and vote by suggesting a city of choice. Voting is open now and Lucy will tour the cities with the most votes in Jan/Feb of 2018.

Lucy Rose will release her new studio album, Something’s Changing, on July 14, 2017, through Communion Records.
The album will be accompanied by a stunning short documentary, acting as a fly-on-the-wall account of Lucy’s debut tour of Latin America last year.
The trip, organised independently by Lucy with the help of her Latin American fans, became a huge inspiration for the record and the film is an intimate account of how it all came together.
For two months Lucy, her guitar and her backpack toured Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Mexico, playing free shows, staying with fans and “falling back in love with making music”.
The documentary of her experience there, fans blocking the street outside a gig above a launderette, trying to sleep on endless inter-city bus rides, connecting with a friend-fan who tells her “for me music is God”, living with families in out of the way towns and overwhelmed by the kindness and faith in music of those she met, is deeply moving.
