Hi – I’m Lucy and I’m an independent musician living just outside of London.
I’ve been working as a gigging artist and songwriter for over 10 years now professionally (whatever that word means… I get paid!)
I wanted to write this blog as a place of honesty about the reality of life as an independent, female musician in her twenties, struggling with making sense of the world paying her rent ,and making her career work… the same way any other person does but with that added creative pressure!
There’ll be a mix of stuff in here; honest posts about the mental and physical struggles, the fantastic joys of the job, and maybe a few advice tips too.
It’s taken me a while to start posting on here, out of fear of writing the wrong thing. But I’m here now and I’m trying.
I hope you enjoy reading the rambles.
